The Blood

Posted on Posted in devotions

“And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.” Revelation 12:11, ESV

To conquer means to defeat, to overcome and to triumph. Humans by nature like to rule—to conquer.  We like to be in charge and hence our conquest includes lands, territories and fear itself. The inherent need to overcome or conquer makes us call obstacles in our way “problems”.  The life and efforts of man over time has been for one goal–to overcome.  Overcome sickness and diseases.  Overcome poverty and even our inabilities.

As a Christian, you overcome not with “30 days to long life”, “four steps to make your life happier”, or “how to solve problems before they start.”  You, as a child of the Most High King Jehovah Elohim overcome and conquer only by the precious blood of Jesus.  The blood of Jesus is your enablement. The blood of Jesus is your shield; this blood cleanses and makes you whole.  This blood sets you apart for the King.  It endows and crowns you with mercy, love and grace. The blood opens closed doors and closes doors that the enemy comes through to invade and destroy your life.  The blood of Jesus, it is your portion, it is precious, and it is free.

When life overwhelms you and the storms of life are raging, when “problems” seem to spring up on you out of nowhere, do not forget you have conquered and you have overcome through the blood of Jesus Christ.  Run to the blood.  Let it speak for you and let it raise its’ banner of victory over you, under which you will find peace in the midst of the storm and a refresher for your soul.

A Meditational Song

There is power mighty in the blood;
There is power mighty in the blood.
There is power mighty in the blood of Jesus Christ;
There is power mighty in the blood.
