What A Mighty God We Serve


Can your heart identify to these words? “He is so good to me, oh yes. He gives me victory, oh yes! Oh what a mighty God we serve…….He opens doors for me, oh yes. Doors I’m unable to see, oh yes. Oh what a mighty God we serve.” I woke up with this song of my youth. This tune is not the popular version we know today but one that seems to have vanished from the archives. I learned it in the 70’s.

Hope is the principle we are focused on this month. Yesterday I had a belief in the Giants victory that was fueled by hope. I am sure many of you did as well. At half time they were behind and the Patriots seemed to be gaining momentum going into the third quarter. I remember tweeting after a failed drive that “it was clobbering time” in the Giants camp. (I am a Fantastic 4 fan too!) To my surprise I was right. The game shifted and the Giants went on to win in the last 2 minutes of the game. What an exciting game but it also serves as a lesson in the benefits of HOPE.

My statement was fueled in hope. I hoped that the defense would prevail because of their history. I hoped in Eli being the better leader because of his history. I hoped in the receivers being in sync with Eli and running the field because of their history. The Giants did not start out the season on top but the history of the season yielded significant evidence to fuel my HOPE. We got to see the Giants, in all their splendor, win the game, the trophy, the rings and the celebration began. OH WHAT A TIME!!

Romans 5:2 reminds us “By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” HOPE is vital because of the process of justification at work in my life. It is necessary to do a daily assessment of the HOPE in my life. There may be times when I have nothing “going on” to hope in. If my heart and mind is not settled in “rejoicing in HOPE of the glory of God” I could find myself hopeless in certain situations. Hopelessness is a direct result of a conquered lifestyle.

I continue to WAKE UP  to the fact that “WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS”  in all my affairs. You have a best friend in Jesus that has affixed you into the Body of Christ so perfectly that you are victorious from the time you wake up until the time you go to sleep.  All you need is a heart and mind that is settled in “rejoicing in Hope of the glory of God.” My HOPE in the Giants winning the super bowl was realized and lasted for one day and it was AWESOME!!!!

OUR HOPE IN THE GLORY OF GOD REVEALED TO MANKIND AND THE WORLD IS GOING TO LAST THROUGHOUT ETERNITY – IT WILL NEVER END!!!!!!!!!!

Can u hear me shouting????????  SHOUT WITH ME!

We are all CONQUERORS in Christ.

    1. I am not able to find this lyric on the internet. Believe me I searched for hours. The song title was popularized by another version that became a praise & worship standard in the 90’s. The lyrics I quoted were from the 70’s. Thanks for stopping by ConquerorShots. We are always open so tell your friends. God bless you.

  1. During our Pastor’s sermon this morning, he said something that reminded me of this song. I googled the beginning lyrics & stumbled upon your post. The young adult choir in the church where I grew up in New York used to sing this. My brother was one of the musicians & I remember a lot of songs from back then. These are the lyrics I remember. I hope they help.

    He is so good to me. Oh, Yes.
    He gives me victory. Oh, Yes.
    Oooohhhh, what; What a mighty God we serve.

    He opens doors for me. Oh, Yes.
    Doors I’m unable to see. Oh, Yes.
    Oooohhhh, what; What a mighty God we
    serve.

    He can say to the mountains, be thou removed; and they’ll vanish in the twinkling of an eye. Oh, yes!!

    One day He raised the dead. Oh, Yes.
    Five thousand souls He fed. Oh, Yes
    Oooohhhh, what. What a mighty God we serve.

    1. Darlene,
      God bless you for reminding me of this song on today. It amazes me how God continues to use this work on ConquerorShots to edify the saints around the world. It is even more amazing when He lets me experience these blessings as guests like you share your messages with me.
      You nailed it w/ those lyrics. That is the song! I searched all over the internet at the time God led me to write the post but I could not find it. It was one of the first songs I learned in the choir as a child.
      Today I am blessed to engage the power of the lyrics as I am overwhelmed w/ praise. God said “yes” to a long time prayer request today. “He is sooooo good to me……”
      Again thank you!
      Darrin
