‘Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. ‘ Romans 12:17-18
You can’t have peace and repay evil for evil. When others hurt us our natural response is to try and hurt them back, but God wants us to respond
supernaturally by trying to live in peace with them.
God’s Word makes it clear there will be some people that it is simply impossible to live at peace with. Our peace does not, depend upon their response it
depends on our response. As much as it depends on us, we are to try and live peaceable with everyone, but when it’s not if we have done our part right we can still have peace, because our peace comes from our supernatural response.
Prayer: “God, help me not to respond to evil and hurts with evil and hurts, instead help me to do the supernatural and try to live at peace with them in spite of what they have done or said. Thank you God, that even when there is those I can’t live at peace with I can still have Your peace. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
