Romans 12:21 (KJV)
Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
You cannot allow what you face in this world to determine who you are and what you do! If you wait until everything is right, to do right, you will never accomplish God’s plan for your life. Our focus must be on God, His word, and His plan.
Simply put, you will face evil! It’s how you respond that will make all the difference in the world. It is very easy to get caught up with what’s going on in this world around us or what someone has done to us. If you get caught up with these things you are not following in the steps of Jesus. Jesus never allowed any person, any circumstance, any storm, or any situation determine who he was or what he did. Jesus was on a mission to fulfill God’s plan in the earth!
Jesus was a vessel that was totally yielded to God and he fulfilled God’s plan for his life in the earth. You and I can do the same. We must choose to do good. Evil will come, but you overcome evil by continually doing good. Stay focused on the task at hand. There are people all around you that need to know the Jesus that has saved you! Don’t allow anyone or anything to take your focus away from being that vessel that pours out the goodness of God on others!
Acts 10:38 says, “(Jesus) went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil, for God was with him.” God is with you today! Focus on him and on being that vessel that pours out all that he is on your family, friends, and the lost and dying of this world. If you so choose, you can make a difference!
