DO NOT BE OVERCOME BY EVIL, BUT OVERCOME EVIL WITH GOOD
Overcome evil with good. Good comes from God. God IS good.
THE GOOD MAN BRINGS GOOD THINGS OUT OF THE GOOD STORED UP IN HIS HEART, AND THE EVIL MAN BRINGS EVIL THINGS OUT OF THE EVIL STORED UP IN HIS HEART. FOR OUT OF THE OVERFLOW OF HIS HEART HIS MOUTH SPEAKS
Beloved, today, I want you to understand that you can only overcome evil with good if good has been stored up in your heart, for out of the overflow of your heart you will act and react. If you have been filling your heart with the negative, destructive beliefs of the father-of-lies, you will only act and react out of hatred, jealousy, and bitterness. However, if you have been filling your heart with My Love, Hope, and Truth, you will respond with Righteousness, Peace, and Faith.
LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE BEFORE MEN, THAT THEY MAY SEE YOUR GOOD DEEDS AND PRAISE YOUR FATHER IN HEAVEN
Know that Righteousness, Peace, and Faith come directly from Me, your Perfect Father in Heaven. You do not bring these qualities into existence by yourself. Even after you become a Christian, you might still have hatred, bitterness, or jealousy stored up in your heart. You need My Son, Jesus, whom I sent to you, to exchange these evils for His Truth, Love, and Hope.
What have been coming out of your heart and mouth: hatred, bitterness, and jealousy, or Righteousness, Peace, and Faith? Know that you will produce whatever has been stored in your heart.
Do you want to change? Invite the Lord Jesus to remove the negative, destructive beliefs from the father-of-lies that have been causing your jealousy, bitterness, and hatred, and ask Him to replace these beliefs with His Truth, Hope, and Love. Then, you will not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with God!
PRAYER: Most High, I invite You into my heart where the negative, destructive beliefs of the father-of-lies dwell. I invite You to remove these and to fill my heart with Your Hope, Love, and Truth, for out of the overflow of my heart will my mouth and my actions speak. May Your Light shine in me, Lord God, before everyone, that they may see Your Righteousness in me, and praise You, my Father in Heaven.
