How Evil Triumphs
Posted by Shawnie Cannon
Heavenly Father made us more powerful than evil.
Yes it takes swipes at us.
Yes it knocks us down sometimes.
Nonetheless, the Great I AM of the Universe endowed us with the means to rise and overcome.
"He [Lucifer] may have power to bruise thy heel, but thou shalt have power to crush his head." (Paraphrased from Genesis 3:15)
Satan's only path to winning is if we sit back and permit it.
Sometimes the member about to go inactive only looses their grip if we sit back.
Many times the sister about to succumb to hopelessness and despair only slips if we mind our own business.
I remember one day as I was facing a difficult situation in dealing with someone's really adverse behavior, my friend told me "...not doing anything about it gives him permission to do it again."
Do we give permission under the guise of "peacemaking"? Do we give permission under the guise of "patience"? Do we give permission under the guise of not wanting to interfere? Do we give permission because we have thrown up our hands? Do we give permission because of not wanting to rock the boat? Do we give permission because it involved our peers?
There will be something you were prompted to think about when reading this post...a situation, a person, a cause.
Never EVER do "nothing." You have so much power in you to send vibes of goodness and increased well-being out into the world. It may not always be appreciated by others in the moment - but the good fight is worth it in the end.
Note to myself: Love this day. Find a way to love this day.
