Scripture: Psalm 35 and Romans 12

This Psalm can go hand-in-hand with Romans 12. When people are against you it burns. Anger and bitterness can then burn in you.

Stay in prayer for your “enemies”. Stay in prayer for deliverance from persecution. Stay in rejoicing with those who rejoice. Stay in mourning with those who mourn.

Overcome evil with good.

Love in Action

9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.
17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. 20 On the contrary:

“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
    if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”

21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Got fear? Pray to the Lord:

When fear strikes, imagine this:

The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them.

The Lord is good to us. So be good to Him.

Turn away from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.
