Overcome Evil with Good

The psalmist in Psalm 120 was put in a bad situation because someone was lying about him and he needed the Lord’s help.  This psalm was probably written by David when on the run from King Saul and he sought help through prayer.

Those that want power and control bring about this desire for war and not peace. Take a look at the fighting that goes on between religions and how they make those that do not believe in their specific form of faith a pariah.  Sometimes the battle is a negative culture being pushed on people like a cancer on an otherwise healthy society. The problem is sin but the answer is God’s Son who paid the price.

Let us follow this example of David as presented in today’s passage and go to the Lord in prayer when in distress. Let us depend on the Him to take on our battles so that evil is overcome with good. When facing our enemies, let’s ask the Lord to provide for our needs and protect us until things are made right in His timing.

    Love it! When we react we are only treating symptoms. When God acts he cures the disease. A great reminder to let the Doctor fix the problem, whether it’s them… or us!

  2. Great post. If I knew how to reblog it…I would.

      I know what you mean about how to do the many tools of wordpress like reblog. There may be several ways to reblog but the one I’ve tried before is clicking on the spot where it says Reblog on the tab at the very top. Thanks for liking the post and have a blessed day with God!

  3. Amen! Couldn’t agree more Mark. Our mission is to draw people to Christ by showing His love and patience, not push them away by our confrontation and condemnation.

    Thanks for the post!
