“OVERCOMING EVIL WITH GOOD”
Evil obtains victory when good or Godly people only stand and watch from the sidelines and do nothing. As children of the living God, we come face to face with evil every day in many forms, it’s inevitable…we are living targets whether we believe it or not. That Holy Spirit within us shines light in unwanted dark places. Even makes us an enemy to ourselves and causes the flesh to fight against the spirit. It is in my opinion that most of us try to avoid “spiritual conflict” or any “conflict” for that matter being the wrestling with unseen forces, the flesh that wages war against the spirit, or just every day confrontation with people, however, spiritual forces realizes this and we’re the target for them to try and steal that joy of Christ in your life for the day. We ultimately fear what we don’t understand and as we know fear paralyzes faith, therefore the good we want to do, this we do not, because when doubt rises it opens doors for a victory for the enemy. Well, we know scripture states that God won’t give us more than we can bare, and will provide a way of escape when that hour of tempting come upon us. We see even when our Lord was tempted didn’t rely on his strength, but quoted scripture to stand on, and this is what we must do. Not lean on our own understanding based on the world around us, this is a common error done by believers and when we step away from the word to confront the enemy, we have nothing to stand on. So what do I say to this? Face the enemy in the name of Jesus and change fear into unshakable faith…we’re not alone in this battle. Overcome that evil when it presents itself with the goodness of our Lord that resides within you. You are that light that shines in darkness and that darkness can’t understand it, it fears that glorious light…that is your strength…that is your identity in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen!!! We have the mind of Christ, we are being created in the likeness of our Lord, so let that light shine bright in this darkness. NO MORE shall we back down, NO MOREshall we doubt. NO MORE shall we permit evil to intimidate. NO MORE shall we compromise with sin…NO MORE! Amen. Did our Lord not state that; “In this life you shall have trouble. But be of good cheer, because I have already overcome the world.” If they (the world) prosecuted our Lord we should not think that prosecution should escape us in one form or another, no student is greater than his teacher. We are in enemy territory continuing the work of our Lord… releasing those that remain in chains and bondage by the enemy, including our brothers and sisters in Christ. How can we achieve this if we’re not pressing forward and facing this “evil” that binds many? It’s all around us…only we have to see it for what it really is…prayerfully. May the living God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob continue to protect, keep and safeguard you as you press forward overcoming evil with His goodness. God bless.
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in heavenly places.”
REMEMBER!!! Go take a peek at the novel if you haven’t yet. “Battlefield of Angels” It’s a glimpse at spiritual warfare around us and rate this. Though fictional in content many of the events are realand a shadow of my life.
