Every day there are so many bad things happening in your life, do you overcome evil with good? If you take that one verse, I overcome evil with good and repeat it to yourself. You will have so many things coming in your life against you, you can win it over by doing good. If you do not obey His word you don’t make the Word a lamp to your feet.
Let’s look at David, he was an anointed man of God, he was always after God.
2 Samuel 11:1
And it came to pass, after the year was expired, at the time when kings go forth to battle, that David sent Joab, and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the children of Ammon, and besieged Rabbah. But David tarried still at Jerusalem.
Now we all know that David disobeyed God and fell in sin and had an adultery. How can a man who is praising God do this blunder? The bible gives an answer to everything, it is given step by step how the devil takes you on a ride and destroys you.
It says in the verse it was the time when kings go for battle, Israel has gone for war and God has given the victory. Now look at verse ,
2 Samuel 11:2
Then it happened one evening that David arose from his bed and walked on the roof of the king’s house. And form the roof he saw a woman bathing, and the woman was very beautiful to behold.
David shouldn’t have been at home it was the time for the kings to go for war. He was supposed to be at battle but decided to stay at home, and there he saw a woman if David was at battle he wouldn’t have been on the terrace. How many times when God wants us to do something we become lazy we are resting and that’s where the devil uses us. If you don’t use yourself for the Lord, you use yourself for the devil and it will destroy you. When God has anointed you He is expecting you to go out and do His work, but David instead of he going, he sent his servant and he was at home.
