Overcome Evil With Good

Our Scriptures tell us that if you see your enemy hungry, go buy that person lunch, or if he’s thirsty, get him a drink. Your generosity will surprise him with goodness. Don’t let evil get the best of you;
get the best of evil by doing good.
— Romans 12:20-21

By Nina Roach

One sure way that we can use the power that Christ gave us, is to love others by doing good. Before we were born again and in our old sinful natures we didn't think twice at times about others, our actions or the conversations that we engaged in. When our time had come and we became born again there was a new Seed implanted in our hearts.

It was the very Word and nature of God residing on the inside of us. This is why it is possible to overcome evil with good regardless of the actions of other people. The next time when you are confronted with a touchy situation, stop and think about how you will respond. One of the ways that you will know that the fruit of the Spirit of God is growing within you is how you treat others.

Decree It: I am the Body of Christ and Satan has no power over me. God's Word has changed my heart and I refuse to let evil get the best of me. I get the best of evil by doing good every opportunity I have.
