Overcoming What They Did







As we go through life many events take place concerning things we can control and things we can't control. With that being said I have learned along the way that the actions of people and what they do to us can not be controlled by us. We can only control our own actions and response. Therefore regardless of what they did to us, we can do nothing to change their heart. But God can.


I know, I know, your wondering well what do I do? How do I endure?


Well sis, you must know that you have to do it in the strength of Christ and not of yourself. Jesus Christ died for our sins, and not just the sins of ourselves but the sins of others. Therefore we have overcome sin by Jesus Christ and overcome the sins that others have committed towards us. We are no longer in bondage to their sins nor our own. We are set free by the blood of Jesus Christ our Lord. YOU NO LONGER HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT IT!


3 Tips to Overcoming What They Did to You:


  1. Let it Go and Let God have his way. Pray intensely for them, and take that emotion you have concerning that matter into prayer and pray it off you, and ask God to assist your heart.

  2. Forgive them: Jesus Christ Forgave us therefore we forgive them. Just as we understand we need forgiveness, we forgive them.

  3. Respond in Jesus Christ: So Jesus Christ has a way of responding to haters, backstabbers, etc. Yes I know you may be thinking well that was Jesus, I can't... WAIT SIS you can through Jesus Christ. Even Jesus Christ's own disciples, those who walked with him, lived with him, ate with him, loved him, betrayed him. Yet Jesus never responded in an unclean way. Jesus was always temperate. I have to study the response of Jesus daily in order to check my own response to others. I pray you study Jesus Christ's character and strive to respond the same.

1 Peter 2:21-25

For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:
22Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:
23Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:
24Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
25For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.
