Spoiler: We Win / Romans 8:37-39 w/ Liz Callicott

37 Yet even in the midst of all these things, we triumph over them all, for God has made us to be more than conquerors, and his demonstrated love is our glorious victory over everything!

38 So now I live with the confidence that there is nothing in the universe with the power to separate us from God’s love. I’m convinced that his love will triumph over death, life’s troubles, fallen angels, or dark rulers in the heavens. There is nothing in our present or future circumstances that can weaken his love. 39 There is no power above us or beneath us—no power that could ever be found in the universe that can distance us from God’s passionate love, which is lavished upon us through our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One!

Romans 8:37-39 The Passion

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:37-39 ESV

37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:37-39 NLT

31-39 So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us? And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God’s chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture:

They kill us in cold blood because they hate you.

We’re sitting ducks; they pick us off one by one.

None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.

Romans 8:31-39 The Message

Declaration inspired from Romans 8 by Wendy Landin

Our standing in Christ is secure and the Love of Christ is unchanging and not affected by anything, hence these verses listing them out!

Our standing is who we are in Jesus

Declaring; Your standing is you are a new creation, you are a people for his possession , a royal priesthood,  you are alive to God, all grace abounds towards you, all sufficiency is in you through him.

You are anointed, you are the apple of God’s eye, you are baptized into one spirit, you’re baptized into Christ Jesus, you are the Beloved, you are blameless, you’re blessed, you have bold access to the throne of God.

You are born again, you are part of the bride, part of the body, you’ve been buried with Christ in His death and risen to your new life in Him.

You are chosen, you are a chosen generation, Christ indwells you with all his fullness, you are a coheir with Christ. you were created for good works, you are free in Christ Jesus, you’re declared holy, you are a disciple, you’re elect, you’re enriched, everything works to His good and in your favour, you’re enriched in all knowledge, you are a fellow citizen, He has freely given you all things, 

You are a friend of Christ, you are fruitful, you’re gifted, you’re blessed, you’re rich in Christ, you are the habitation of God, you have the mind of Christ, He is at work in you, He is for you not against you, you are hidden in Christ, you are highly favoured, you are his possession, you are his favourite. 

You are his workmanship, you are a holy nation, you are a holy priesthood, you are inseparable from the Love of God. You are a jewel in his eye, you are his crowning creation, you are justified, you are known by him and you are lacking in nothing.

You are the light of the world, you live by faith, by the light of the Lord, you are made in his image, you are more than a conquerer, you are new creation, you have a sound mind, you are purified, you are resurrected with Christ, you are redeemed, you are the righteousness of God, you are a saint, your saved, your sealed and you are seated with him in heavenly places. 

You are his servant, you share in his authority, you are the sheep of his pasture, you are strengthened by him, you are a shining light, you are the friend of God, you are the temple of the holy spirit, you are transformed by new mercies every morning, you are wise, your a warrior and you are witnesses of Christ and absolutely worthy of Him choosing you from the very beginning!

Nothing, absolutely nothing can separate you from His love.
