Overcome Evil With Good
By Dr. Cindy Trimm on September 11 2012
Eleven years ago today, two kingdoms clashed that brought down the World Trade Center and shook the world. In a matter of minutes, more lives were lost on American soil as a result of that singular momentous clash than ever before.
As we remember what may have been the darkest day in U.S. history, let’s not forget what we risk as the kingdoms of dark and light clash in our daily lives.
In moments when selfish motives overcome loving ones, we might not see skyscrapers crumble to the ground in a ball of flames, but life has been lost. Lights have been dimmed. Lines have been moved giving territory to the wicked.
There is a battle that continually rages in our workplaces, schools, communities, and homes—in government halls, financial centers, media channels, and neighborhood streets.
We are all called to hold the line and fight the good fight. Young and old, male and female, rich and poor, high and low, wherever you find yourself, there you are on the front line.
Today, as we remember those who have fallen at the hands of dark forces, pray for God’s love to overcome. Pray for goodness, mercy, light, and love to prevail. Pray for grace to abound.
There is no force more powerful on the face of the earth than prayer.
We can do more than hold the line—we can advance the Kingdom and take back whatever territory has been stolen. Join with me today in declaring, “Let there be light”—and move out today in God’s love.
Romans 12:21: Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
