September 20–Spiritual Vitamins–Day 20

Psalm 37:3
SPIRITUAL VITAMIN O : OVERCOME

“Do not be overcome by evil,
but overcome evil with good.”
Romans 12:21 NKJV

 

OVERCOME the World
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world.
And this is the victory that has overcome the world–our faith.” 1 John 5:4

OVERCOME the Flesh
“You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” 1 John 4:4

OVERCOME the Devil
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony,…”  Revelation 12:11

  • Overcome means to defeat.
    We can defeat evil by doing good.
    It sounds simple but as most of us know
    it is often hard to put into practice.

However, we believers have the Holy Spirit within us, so we can be over-comers everyday!
“because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.”1 John 4:4 (NKJV)

So,“…let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.” Galatians 6:9-10 NKJV

Today’s Action:
Today let’s take our Spiritual Vitamin O and be Over-comers!
Let’s put into practice what the scriptures say:

  • Overcome evil by doing good.
    Love your enemies
    If your enemy is hungry–feed him.
    If he is thirsty–give him a drink.
    Do good to those who curse you
    Do good to those who hate you
    Pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.
    Do not grow weary
    Keep doing good.
    Trust the Lord.
    Pray for His strength.
