We all have been affected by evil people in this world at one time or another. For some reason there are those who just don’t care about others and are into life for themselves. They are driven by evil desires and are overcome by demonic powers. The sad thing is most don’t know what is driving them or even care to know. They tend to go through life pretty much unaware and sometimes they are quite aware. It is a sign of the end times and the prophesied world we would live in.
2 Timothy 3: 2-5
“People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.”
It can be hard at times to sit back and watch evil people prosper, but it happens and there is nothing we can do about it, accept pray. When their evil touches us, we are called to forgive but as the Scriptures state we are to have nothing to do with such people. There is no arguing or reasoning with a person driven by evil desires. The demonic realm attaches to those who have evil tendencies.
Remember that things will be alright. God takes care of the vindication part when evil touches us. Our battle is not with flesh but with the evil powers in spiritual places. There will come a day that all of God’s people will watch and witness the vindication of God. So, when evil touches you from the influence of a person, don’t waste your time trying to make things right on your own. God has a plan for those who refuse Him and make the conscious decision to create havoc on other people’s lives.
The goodness of the Lord will yet be seen by all. He is our divine conqueror and the keeper of our peace. When we turn our hearts toward Him, the Bible says we are more than conquerors. Focus on the “more” part and you will yet see the goodness of God in this world as well as the Kingdom to come!
