Conquer evil by doing good
Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good. Rom 12:21. Don’t give the devil inroads into your heart when things go wrong. Don’t look at ways of getting even, but look at what Jesus would do. As we start to change the way we look at situations to how God would look at it, we are also guarding our heart and protecting our peace. When you allow thoughts to run in anger, you open your heart to bitterness, hurt and everything that’s contrary to God’s love. Whilst you can’t control what happens to you, you can control your response. If you need time to think, take time out, if you can turn a wrong into a right, do it. Love also covers a multitude of sins, so often, forgiveness will open the door to reconciliation and restoration. Praise God today for His undeserved grace and mercy towards us. Ask God to give you the wisdom to treat others as He treats us when things go wrong.
