Grounded in Faith

While reading my devotional today I came across a great quote.

“Standing your ground is easier when your grounded in faith.” Your Daily Walk devotional

Are you grounded in faith? There are many times where we each focus our attention on our problems and everything that is going wrong in our life. So I encourage you to stop focusing on your problems and focus on the one who is our problem solver (God).

We are not alone but God is with us always. Read psalm 3 as the devotional I read today encouraged me, and see how David shifts his focus from his problem to his problem solver. Better yet read psalm 1-6 today

Is Repaying Evil for Evil Worth It?

“Repay evil with good, and you deprive the evildoer of all the pleasure of his wickedness.” – You Daily Walk Devotional

Repaying evil for evil may seem logical or even fair and it also may seem like it will satisfy you. But will it? What does repaying evil for evil really do? Depriving the evil doer of the pleasure he/she receives from their wickedness can help that person change their ways. If everyone were to respond to evil with love how would the world look today? Responding to evil with love and scripturally can win that person’s heart over to God.

If you are a Christian and someone does evil to you and you respond with evil what is your react to that evil showing that person? Always respond to evil with good, love and scripturally even when it hard to do so and then pray for that person.

Roman’s 12:21 NIV ” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

As the bible stated in Roman’s chapter 12:17-18, 19 do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. Do not take revenge, my dear friends. But leave room for Gods wrath, for it is written: it is mine to avenge; I will repay, says the Lord.

The benefits of repaying evil with good out weigh those of evil. Always love in action.

Your Thoughts Are Important

Our thoughts are important, so important that Satan uses them to insert his lies. He knows are mind is powerful and if he can get us to think lowly of ourselves, believe his lies and think impure things, he has us.

Proverbs 23:7 says ” For as he thinks within himself, so is he.” NKJV

So if you think you won’t get that job, your poor, your worthless that is what you become. What you think ultimately travels to your heart. Just like words are powerful so are your thoughts and you have to fight back with the word of God. God thinks so highly of you that he gave his only begotten son as a living sacrifice for you. Jesus DIED FOR YOU! He SUFFERED FOR YOU so you wouldn’t have to. 

Romans 8:6 ” For the mind is set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the spirit is life and peace.” NKJV

When you think your worthless or other fleshly or undesirable things, have you noticed you that you don’t feel happy or joyful even when you hang out with your friends? That’s because when your mind is set to think on things that are not good or positive or noble it brings death and destruction. 

Philippians 4:8 “Finally, Brethren, whatever is true, whatever is Honorable, whatever is righ,  whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there  is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.”

It’s important to meditate on Gods word daily, Pray without ceasing and be careful of what you watch and listen to. Ultimately what you watch and listen to you will dwell on. For an example If your listening to secular music a song about heartbreak and what that man did to you. You will dwell on, how can you be healed if you keep you mind on your heart break. What room do you lave for God to heal your heart? That’s why you should be careful of what you listen to and watch. You will dwell on the things that you give your attention to on a daily basis. when you dwell on God and his word it brings peace and life. 

That doesn’t mean you won’t struggle or go through trials but it means God will be there, he will be your strength. Don’t take my word for it read the Bible for yourself, pray, and fast. Ask God to reveal it you.

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness.” Second Corinthians 12:9
