overcome evil with good

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.I am not sure why it has taken me so many years to learn this … but I am finally learning that the best way to overcome obstacles, offenses, and setbacks in my life, is to do the very opposite. Is someone bad mouthing me? Good mouth them back. ♥ Is my husband fighting with me? Don’t get drawn in (this is the hardest application of all) but instead, seek for peace and pursue it. ♥ Act on that which calms instead of that react to that which escalates. I need constant help with this! Did someone just speak a negative prophecy over my family, children, or grandchildren? Counter it by speaking an edifying and positive promise over them instead. Is my mind or heart racing with worries or fears? Speak my trust and hope in God. Am I telling myself what I can’t do? Stop it! Start telling myself what I can do through Christ who strengthens me! Overcome every evil thing with good! ♥
