Repay no one evil for evil, but take thought for what is honest and proper and noble [aiming to be above reproach] in the sight of everyone. [Prov. 20:22.] If possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave the way open for [God’s] wrath; for it is written, Vengeance is Mine, I will repay (requite), says the Lord. [Deut. 32:35.] But if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals upon his head. [Prov. 25:21, 22.] Do not let yourself be overcome by evil, but overcome (master) evil with good.” Romans 12:17-21 AMP

Most of the time we meet oppressed or depressed born again children of God Almighty. They are unhappy because of the way they have been handled either by authority figures in their lives, friends, or loved ones. They move with this pain and sadness in their soul. They have been to many prayer meetings and on medication, still very depressed.

The reason for this sadness and depression is because we want our offenders to experience what we have been experiencing in our soul daily and also our inability to prevent what happened before it happened. So we are disappointed in people for what they did to us and in ourselves for allowing them to mistreat us. And also we have allowed evil to overcome us.

The pain we experience on daily base will only leave our lives if we allow the voice of the love of God in us rule over us. Every genuine born again child of God is controlled by this love.

For the love of Christ controls and urges and impels us, because we are of the opinion and conviction that [if] One died for all, then all died;” 2 Corinthians 5:14 AMP

Your solution is within you. If we learn not to resist the Holy Spirit by allowing God’s love in us to rule us. All our pain and sadness that we have against our offenders will vanish in a second.

Do not let yourself be overcome by evil, but overcome (master) evil with good.” Romans 12:21 AMP

The Word of God Almighty says: “We overcome evil with good not with evil.”

It’s time for us to change our attitude towards our offenders. After all walking in love benefits you more than person you’re giving love to. When we give or practice the God kind of love, we fulfil our purpose in God in this world. For walking in God kind of love is fulfilling the law.

It’s time for us to give our pain or sadness another look and start believing God’s best and praying for our offenders. That’s the door out of our pain and sadness.

Give to others what you will love to have or experience in your own life. That’s how we overcome evil in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen.

Let’s pray together:

Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your Word. Today help me by Your Spirit to overcome every evil with Your good in me in Jesus Christ mighty Name. Amen.
