Topic: They Must Not Affect You! Infect Them!
Scripture: Romans 12
Welcome to today’s devotional encounter with He that is called LOVE! A lot of people ARE HURTING and they go through life battered by different kinds of hurt and disappointment. They allow themselves to be filled with bitterness and all kinds of negative emotions, and they are quick to dump it on anyone that crosses their paths. When such people come across your path, don’t let them affect you, rather, infect them.
Hear it again:When People Try To Rub Their Negative, Sour Attitude On You, Don’t Let Them Affect You; Infect Them With The Love, Power And Grace Of God. That is what you will see again and again in the life of David as Saul pursued him from city to city and desert to desert. Saul was filled with hatred towards this young man, but David refused to allow that hatred come into him. Instead of responding in revenge, bitterness and hatred, he chose to al- low the grace and mercy of God to prevail over him.
Romans 12:21 makes it clear: “Do not be overcome with evil, but overcome evil with good.” For example,when someone speaks hurtful things about you, it’s normal to want to go around speaking evil things about that person too, but DON’T DO IT. Don’t let their negative attitude rub off on you.DON’T LET THEM AFFECT YOU; INFECT THEM.
Be ready and willing to speak positive things about them if necessary! Oh, I know this is tough! But when you choose to walk in love and peace, you are making it difficult for the devil to fill your heart with bitterness and YOU ARE MAKING IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR HIM TO ACCUSE/HINDER YOU! Pray now!
