Don't go there!

“Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.” Romans 12:21

Some people are like kids on an elevator, they will push every emotional button on you, never realizing they are being used by the enemy. When everything in you wants to react in a negative way, don’t go there. Remember, whoever overcomes you controls you (see 2 Peter 2:19). Your determination to consistently show kindness and love is too much for any evil person to handle. Good overcomes evil.

There has been times I have literally broke down crying in my time alone with God because God wanted me to love someone I wanted to hate. He wanted me to do good when I wanted to get even. I wanted to be overcome by evil and show that I’m not a doormat, but God’s Spirit within me wouldn’t let me go there. Oh thank God for the Holy Ghost! Oh thank God for His help in keeping our flesh under! It is only by His grace and supernatural power that I have never once cursed anyone out in my entire life. Have I become angry and wanted to? Yes, of course. Many times. But when God’s Spirit truly lives in us, we can’t do whatever we want to do and we can’t say whatever we want to say. We must submit to God, saying “Yes” to His Spirit no matter how we feel about it.

When we learn to submit to God, we find it easier to submit to others, even those who are not so kind. You must remember that you have influence in this world. Somebody, even if it’s one person, is watching you and your example. Don’t give evil nonsense a moment of your time. It’s not worth it. Live the life God has called you to live. Move forward in doing what He has purposed you to do. Remember, don’t go there.

Prayer: Father God, I thank You for the help of Your Holy Spirit. You loved me enough to put Your Spirit within me to guide me through life. When everything in me wants to act ugly, help me Lord to stay in the Spirit and not go there. I rebuke all strife and wrath and I yield to no other spirit but Yours. Be glorified in me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

    I was just praying about a situation that I wanted to confront. Then I asked the Lord to speak to my heart and tell me what to do. As I open the devotional for this morning I got the answer, ‘Don’t go there,’ 😀
    Thank You for this timely word. May God continue to bless your ministry.😊

  4. My goodness! This spoke to my heart. Dear Lord, I know my tongue has been anything but pleasing to You as of late. Please continue to remind me of how I shouldn’t allow the devil to grab ahold of it and how I can turn it ALL over to You. Thank You, God!

  7. What a wonderful Holy Father thank you for your everlasting love. Forgive me when i fail to show your goodness to others. Forgive me when i make excuses for my behavior. Thank you for reminding me to show your love even when i dont want to. I 💘 you Jesus

  8. Satan’s Role in Our Trials
    “Your adversary, the devil, prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world” (1 Peter 5:8-9).
    All of Satan’s involvement in our sufferings and trials is under God’s control, which means our success against him is also in God’s sovereign hands

  9. Glory be to God, Father help me not to go there, it’s hard not to. Holy Spirit help me to overcome ppl when they are getting under my skin…help me not to go there In Jesus Name Amen🙏

  11. Beloved. I am your Deliverer. Whatever situation you find yourself in, call upon Me, My Child. I will deliver you from the paw of the lion and the bear. I will deliver you from the hand of this present Philistine who threatens you and your loved ones. I will deliver you from the fiery furnace of affliction and from the jaws of death. I will deliver you from the ravenous beasts who threaten to consume you, oh Beloved One of Mine. There is nothing that can happen to you that I will not make a way of escape for you. You overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of your testimony. Behold, all the evil powers that were incensed against you shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with you shall perish. They that war against you and your loved ones shall be as nothing. I have delivered you from death, and do so even now. Trust that I will yet deliver you again. I am the same yesterday, today, and forever. Who or what can stand against your King? No one, Beloved. Put your hand in Mine. Let your faith speak louder than your fear. I have won the victory. I did it all for you, Beloved. I have heard your cries and I shall deliver you out of all your troubles.
    …Psalms 34:17 – [The righteous] cry, and the LORD hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles.
    …Psalm 18:2 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
    …1 Samuel 17:37 And David said, “The LORD who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.
    …Daniel 3:17 If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the furnace of blazing fire; and He will deliver us out of your hand, O king.
    …Daniel 6:16 Then the king gave orders, and Daniel was brought in and cast into the lions’ den. The king spoke and said to Daniel, “Your God whom you constantly serve will Himself deliver you.”
    …2 Corinthians 1:10 Who delivered us from so great a death, and does now deliver us: in Whom we trust that He will yet deliver us again.
    …Isaiah 41:10Fear not; for I am with you: be not dismayed; for I am your God: I will strengthen you; yea, I will help you; yea, I will uphold you with the right hand of My righteousness.11Behold, all they that were incensed against you shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish.12You shall seek them, and shall not find them, even them that contended with you: they that war against you shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.13For I the LORD your God will hold your right hand, saying unto you, Fear not; I will help you.
    I hope this brings encouragement as well as hope to keep running this race until the end we all fall, but Jesus Christ of Nazareth will help you bounce back up that tongue is poison ect.we must be like King David keep praying with a true heart after all God created us he knew temptation / this day was coming nothing takes the Lord Jesus Christ by surprise I’m feeling happy right now sisters in Christ Jesus be encouraged the blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth is against every strong hold demons. …..
    Keep looking up to Jesus Christ of Nazareth amen!

    1. Thank you so much for your obedience in posting this message Bonnie Blair. You have no idea how much confirmation these words give me and how much they encouraged me! I really needed to hear that! God bless you and keep you and cause His face to shine upon you and give you peace.

  12. Oh Lord my God, your word trully guides me. I sin everyday, thank you for not giving up on me. Help me to remember your intentions about my life untill I live to please YOU and not thoughts.

  13. This is exactly what I needed to read! I’ve been struggling with a situation like this at work. I gave it to God knowing he would show me what I needed to do. This is the first devotion I seen on the app I downloaded last night! Our God is a glorious God!

  14. I am struggling with so many situations. Dear God, please help me so that my words and actions are pleasing to you.
