Do not be overcome.

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

God knows our tendency to hear and see evil on the earth and be overwhelmed by it. Whether it is a small thing that crowds our mind for the day or a huge world issue, we can feel helpless and overcome. However, knowing that God lives within us gives us an incredible capacity for good. The Bible talks about using our mind to think over all the good things (things that are pure, lovely and of good report). If we are meditating on Him and His goodness we cannot possibly succumb to the overwhelming feeling – He is Lord of all. And His goodness is more than able to overcome all evil.

Take a moment today to think of all the good God is doing. He is an overcoming God.
