Overcome Evil With Good - Bible Devotional 14th June 2018

Post by Pete » Thu Jun 14, 2018 8:20 pm

Overcome Evil With Good

ROMANS 12:21 NIV 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

There seems to be no lack of evil. That gives us an opportunity to overcome.

We will be tempted to respond in kind -- to strike back at those who hurt us. But that is a bad choice. All it leads to is more pain and misery for more people -- including ourselves.

The answer is divine love.

With God's love inside us, and God helping us, we can return good for evil done to us. That breaks the vicious downward cycle and also breaks the power of evil to affect us.

Don't tell me this won't work in your case. I have personally heard the victorious testimony of a believer who was tortured by his communist captors yet walked in love and overcame the evil situation. It will work!

Love is stronger than hate. Good is more powerful than evil. You can walk in victory no matter what anyone does to you.

ROMANS 5:5 NIV 5 And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.

HEBREWS 13:6 NIV 6 So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?"

SAY THIS: With God's love, I will overcome evil with good.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 1-4

Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
