Be an Overcomer

PRAY

Make sure you take time to read the passage and pray about it before you begin.

Read
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Romans 12:21

WRITE

Short passage today… and jumping back to Romans 12, but I’m really struck by this verse! Good v. Evil. It is a battle that we know is constantly swirling around us. Ephesians 6:12 tells us “we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” First He commands us to not allow this evil to overcome us! And yet… He gives us a way to overcome it! Good! Good overcomes evil! Sometimes it is hard. Sometimes it is hard to do the good thing… to say the right thing… to stand up for the moral thing… to do the Jesus thing! But, what happens when we do? We overcome evil. And remember – we are not doing this on our own – we have a helper – a counselor – the very Spirit of God that will empower, enlighten and guide us along our path. (Luke 12:2, John 14:25-26, Acts 4:31). Praying that the Lord would guide each of us where we need to be the good today!

  • What does this verse mean to you?
  • So I ask… where is God revealing evil to you? Pray about it!
  • What is God calling you to do to shine the light of Christ into this situation? Write down the ways that God is encouraging you  to overcome this evil with good.

Love this song… a Call to Action – Thank you Matthew West!

I hope that you will continue to pray Romans 12:9-21 for yourself and for others. May we grasp what it means to live as a light to others and to shine Christ’s love into the darkness. Praying for you!
