On the surface there is so much evil in this world it can be hard to see anything beyond it. But that is exactly what the enemy wants us to see. He wants us to think that there is more evil than good in the world and there is no way for good to win. Let me just remind you, GOOD WINS! The enemy is a liar and he is small. God is the truth and he is huge. His goodness will always win. Also, let me remind you, that goodness lives on the inside of you! The Holy Spirit is in you and all the goodness of God is in you waiting to get out and be good to others. On our own we are not good enough, but with God we can be.
When the enemy deceived Adam and Eve into eating from the tree of Good and Evil, God had a plan to redeem his children through the death of Jesus. Good won! When Pharaoh wanted to kill all the Israelite baby boys, God had a plan to save Moses and raise him in the very house that was set on his death. Good won! When David was tempted by lust and had an affair with Bathsheba, God had a plan to redeem their second child, Solomon, as the wisest man to ever live. Good won! And when good wins, God wins!! God always has a plan, we may not see or understand it at the time, but He always has a plan of redemption waiting for us.
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.Romans 12:21
Amen! Evil has no power over us as children of God. We do not have to be overcome with evil. We can overcome evil with good. Whatever evil may come against you, take heart! Jesus overcame the world and all the evil in it and so can we.
