Another nugget from Rev. Derek Prince

He said this in the midst of his sermon.

Romans 8:37
"But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us."
In all what things? 
Let’s look at the list. 
Tribulations, distress, persecution, famine, nakedness, peril, sword. 
In all these things, we overwhelmingly conquer. 
The old version used to say, “We are more than conquerors.” 
What does that mean? 
I understand it means you go into the test, you go into the battle, and you come through with more than you had when you went into it. 
You’ve not merely won, but you’ve gained spoil."

Wow! Don't you just lurf it?!
Being more than a conqueror means you don't just win, or even survive the battle, but you come out with SPOIL!
When there is an economic recession, you gain more out of it than you lose.
When there is a spiritual attack, you come out stronger and wiser than you were.

Sidetrack: I was invited to go wakeboarding on May 4!
Am sooooooo tempted to say yes, but need to see if I can work something out ... :P
