Affliction: our servant.
“Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” -Romans 8:37 So what does it mean to be a “more than conqueror”? First, to be a conqueror in general, one must overcome the affliction at hand.

Could it be? That right after I called out to You, Father, You have opened another door to me? Lord, I am willing!!
O my God, what are You doing here?

It’s a petty comparison, but at least it’s tangible. If I find fireworks...
What do you guys think about the 700 club?
