“At all times and under all circumstances, overcome evil with good. Know thyself, and God will supply the wisdom and the occasion for a victory over evil.”
The above admonition is so empowering! It reminds us that no matter what evil we face, we can conquer it by knowing our oneness with God.
God’s creation is not susceptible to evil. It cannot be diseased, pained, weakened, lost or stolen. It is immortal, eternal, forever healthy and strong. This spiritual individuality is the real you, made in God’s image! And it’s forever yours to experience and live out fully.
So, if ever tempted to believe evil is getting the better of you, refuse to indulge any building fear, and devote your mental energies to obeying the command, “Know thyself!” Know your spiritual self. Identify with your spiritual individuality. Know what you are in God’s image and refuse to let mortal mind convince you otherwise.
You are a spiritual being living a spiritual life, and evil has no place, space or room to occupy in this reality you have forever with God.
