Romans 12:21 NIV, “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”
Nowadays we have many opportunities to overcome evil with good, but it all starts in our own hearts. Keeping our focus on Jesus and keeping our minds renewed with His Word, will equip us to choose good when confronted with evil. It helps to remember that goodness lives within us through the Holy Spirit. He empowers us to choose right over wrong and live boldly in God’s truth.
Walking in the ways of Jesus shines light in this dark world, and shares His love with those around us. Putting love into action will surely overcome evil, because love never fails (1 Corinthians 13:8). Even if you feel like you are in last place for doing good to those who you feel don’t deserve it, trust God and do good. Remember, God says as you humble yourself before Him, He will lift you up in due time (1 Peter 5:6). God will honor us and lift us up for doing good. So don’t lose heart, keep on overcoming evil with good in the name of Jesus.
