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. Walk away. Remember, whoever overcomes you controls you (see 2 Peter 2:19).

There have been times I have literally cried in my time alone with God because He 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 His 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 say whatever we want to say. We submit to God’s rule in our hearts, saying “Yes” to Him no matter how we feel about it (see Colossians 3:15).

You have influence in this world. Someone, 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. Receive God’s help to overcome evil with good. Choose to live the life He has called you to live. Move forward into 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.

Amazing!!!!!!This is the very area that my Heavenly Father is dealing with me in,alliwing myself to go there,allowing my power to escape when I feel attached,but I’m learning how to be more aware and more wise in my doing,because I slip and trip sometimes.Im learning not to let my emotions get the best of me.i do realize that its not the person,but it’s the enemy!!!! I find it amazing that you never cussed anyone out in your entire life!!!All things are possible!I can’t say that,but I can thank God that He took the spirit of bad language out of my mouth,praise God.Right now at work the enemy is using this particular person to spread lies about me,”accusers of the northern”I realize it’s only a test and opportunity for me to allow God to fight my battle,He is teaching me many things in this testing period.Please pray for me and pray for my enemy as well.In Jesus Name!!!!Have a blessed day everyone!!!!!!!

  3. Awesome message! PRAISE GOD, ABBA FATHER!!
    Thank You God, for Jesus & thank You, Jesus, for sending Holy Spirit to live IN us. Dear Lord, help us to heed the leading & guiding of Holy Spirit, especially to stay in control & “don’t go there”.
    That’s a good reminder that it’s the enemy using others to attack & test us. However hard it may be, we must rely on God’s strength & He gives us the grace to respond with grace & love. Allow the Holy Spirit to work in us.
    Speak the truth in love. Lord, let my words be seasoned with salt & delivered with grace.
    Remember, the world is watching us; especially to see how we respond in negative situations.
    “It’s only a test!”
    Thank you, Keisha & DOTK
    Sistas. Gloriously abundant blessings to all.

  4. Wow how encouraging to know we all fight the same battle, not to give in to bitterness, not to allow a root of bitterness to grow in us! Not to allow the enemy to get a foothold in our lives. The battle is in the mind. I keep repeating, when the enemy wants to take me there, I am dead to self, alive to Christ the hope of glory! It’s no longer I that live, but Christ in me. The life I now live I live in the Spirit. I only obey the Holy Spirit, no weapon formed against me shall prosper and every tongue that rises up against me shall prove to be in the wrong. In Him I live and move and have my being. I only live to honour my King of Glory Who died for me and gave me eternal life, Jesus Christ my Saviour and King. To God all the Glory Who gave me His Son for redemption of my life.

  7. Today,I came across this link unknowingly, but then again through God’s grace I was led. God deserves all the credit! I am new to the site but oh,how I feel blessed I arrived. The message brought this morning was what I needed most,as i walk around with God. I have failed to be still and listen to Him, the words written by the author just was able to reinforce all the doubts crossing my mind today. Today is a brand new day that I will be sharing with others of God’s goodness and Grace. May I pray for anyone here today? God bless us all; every country and every nation. Thank You again! ♥️🙋‍♀️🙇‍♀️
