David Jeremiah Devotional 6th March 2024: More Than Conquerors

TURNING POINT DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR 6 MARCH 2024 BY DR DAVID JEREMIAH

Welcome to David Jeremiah Devotional, an American evangelical Christian author, founder of Turning Point Radio and Television Ministries and senior pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church. Read and digest the word of the lord for today and see how powerfully it will impact you. God bless you.

El Capitan is the famous rock formation that rises three thousand feet from the floor of Yosemite National Park in California. From the ground, the granite face of the formation looks smooth and nearly vertical. But it is the bumps, cracks, and small ledges that provide handholds and footholds for climbers as they ascend to the top. In fact, it is the bumps on the surface that make conquering El Capitan possible.

When Paul says Christians are “more than conquerors,” he uses a form of the Greek word nike—a word we associate with a brand of sportswear. In ancient Greece, Nike was the winged goddess of victory, thus an appropriate image to associate with athletic victory. Greek nike gave rise to nikao which meant “to conquer or prevail.” The prefix huper (“more than”) produced hupernikao—the word Paul used in Romans 8:37, “more than conquerors.” We don’t just overcome or prevail in life through Christ—we “hyper-prevail.” Bumps don’t defeat us; they provide a path to victory.

Life can look like El Capitan at times. Rather than being defeated by bumps and cracks, we use them as footholds and handholds from the Lord to conquer in Christ.

Mountains can only be climbed with the knees bent.
