Romans 12:21(KJV) Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
It is known throughout history that communities and nations that always retaliate every evil attack meted against them would never know peace because from generation to generation, one side is always retaliating against the other side. That’s one reason why total peace in the middle east is still a dream.
One of the virtues of the Spirit that comes into our lives when we received Jesus is the ability to be restraint even in the face of strong hateful bashing, especially when we could just as well give as much as we have received. And that’s what Jesus taught us in (Matthew 5:38-39).
Our lead scripture enjoins us to pay evil with good. It continues thus: as far as it is in your power, live in peace with all men (Romans 12:18). We decide the way we respond to things done to us, that is our prerogative. Our human default system is configured to pay evil with evil. That is how it operates, but until you reset it through the renewing of your mind with God’s Word, your human default system will always pay evil with evil and not good with evil.
The only way evil deeds can be defeated is through good deeds. When someone wrongs you, instead of responding in equal measure, wisdom teaches us to respond with good. This is why I will always say this, we don’t have any true enemy in the flesh. Our only enemy is Satan that works in and through people.
Go into today remembering to respond with good at all times when people trespass against you. This is the only way to overcome evil and end its malignant spread. Philippians 4:8 should always ring in your heart.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your wisdom which You have shared with me. I trust in You to work in me through the instrumentality of Your Word to always do good in the face of adverse evil. For I know that as I continue doing good, I will always gain victory over evil, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
