Do not let yourself be overcome by evil, but overcome (master) evil with good.

ROMANS 12:21

In Christ you are more than able to overcome any evil that comes against you. You may be a little nervous or afraid but the truth is, “you are the victor”.

There are going to be mountains to climb and valleys to go through in this life. Things are not simply going to drop into your hands without the effort. What happens to you when things do not seem to go your way? What if the road gets very rough? Do you quit the journey? Do you blame God and get discouraged, depressed? I hope not.

Clearly we are told that when evil or opposition comes our way, if we dish out good instead of revenge the evil will be defeated. Yes, it is a challenge to love someone who has gone all out to break down your life and good name, to be kind to someone when all you want to do is attack and destroy their lives in return for the heartache they have caused you.

The victory we have is not won by fighting the same fight that the devil uses. We have far stronger tactics and much greater weapons. Love overcomes hatred, kindness destroys nastiness and the peace in our lives makes unrest run away in terror. Your fight must be fought using Heaven’s rules.

There is no way that you can understand this type of fight unless your trust the Lord. But I guarantee that you will always have the upper hand.
