8-23-14 Overcome

overcome

Resist the evil one who stirs up hate,

Who seeks revenge and works to so divide.

He uses men and nations small and great

And even your own nature’s sin inside.

The armor of the Lord is yours to use,

So clothe yourself each day with faith and love.

Then overcome all evil and abuse

With good in word and deed from Christ above.

Returning evil of all kind with good

Makes you the conquerer conclusively.

Then Satan cannot touch you if he could

If you fight evil with integrity.

            The grace and strength of Jesus dwells in you;

            Use this to thwart the evil that men do.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Be not overcome of evil,

but overcome evil with good.

Romans 12:21 KJV
