Do Not Retaliate

Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. 1 Peter 3:9.

Be determined not to please the enemy by allowing words of unfavorable criticism to lead you to retaliate or to depress you.

Make the enemy’s efforts a failure so far as you are concerned. Then the Lord will draw near to you and
will give you a rich measure of love and peace and joy so deep and full that even in the midst of the trial of your faith you can bear triumphant witness to the truth of the word of promise.

You will have a sense of the divine presence. The eyes of your understanding will be enlightened,
and the truth that at times you have seen but dimly you will then see clearly. You will be able to tell the story of the cross with a deep appreciation of the Saviour’s love, for this love will have melted your heart. You will bear about with you in the daily life the witness that
Christ is formed within, the hope of

Look constantly to Jesus. Take all your troubles to Him. He will never
misunderstand you. He is the refuge of His people. Under the shadow of His protection they can pass unharmed.

Believe in Him and trust in Him. He will not give you up to the spoiler. Let the atmosphere surrounding your soul be sweet and fragrant. If you will battle against selfish human nature, you
will go steadily forward in the work of overcoming hereditary and cultivated tendencies to wrong. By patience, long-suffering, and forbearance you will accomplish much. Remember that you
cannot be humiliated by the unwise speeches of someone else, but that when you speak unwisely you humiliate yourself and lose a victory that you might have gained….

Keep yourselves where the three great powers of heaven—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—can be your efficiency. These powers work with the one who gives himself unreservedly to
God. The strength of heaven is at the command of God’s believing ones.

The man who makes God his trust is barricaded by an impregnable wall.
