An excerpt from "The Gap: Who's Standing For You?" by Pastor Gerald T. Dolphus
"There is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again." Job 14:7
Beloved, it is time for you to sprout again! Tell yourself, its sprouting time! You've been down for a long time, but there is hope. When you get up this time, you will have a double portion; and the next testimony you give will be: "God has given me the victory and the spoils." Its sprouting time!
Many saints have testified, about how they survived their tests, trials, and tribulations. Personally, I do not believe the testimony of a believer should always be one that says, "I survived". Nay in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us." (See Romans 8:37) May I share with you, a Glorious and profound revelation that God has birthed in me? Thanks! During an anagogical experience, God defined a survivor, a conqueror, and a more than conqueror.
Survivor: Those who have gone through, took a beating, and are still here.
Conqueror: The one who fought, won, and walked away with the spoils.
More Than: Those who got the victory and the spoils, but did not have to fight.
God says, "You are a survivor" when you never learn of your inherent power to denounce the demons in your storm, yet you are making it. Jesus the Christ; however, is the conqueror because He conquered death, and the grave. Didactically, Paul writes Romans 8:37, to convince you (as a believer) that you have the power to win, without even through a punch. That makes you a more than conqueror! This status is realized, when you have decided to disallow your gifts to lie dormant, and you have activated the grace of God in your life through faith.
It's Sprouting Time!!!! Be the conqueror God called you...
