    Roman -12

    Perfect verse I need to meditate on that daily, so my pain and hurts won't overcome me, I'm thankful when god put verses in front of me, to remind me that he's in control, he knows my pain and how I'm feeling, but each day is a challenge, but I will continue to pray and feed my mind with his words,
  • Cathy E Lemonds for verse 1
    thank you for the scripture reading
  • Some false teachers are telling Christians that it's ok to sin, because they're already written in the book of life and forgiven anyway. That's a deception by the enemy. Here it clearly says DON'T be confirmed to the world. We are not to be of the world, but a contrast to it, a light.

    This whole chapter feels like my entire life. I survived a horribly abusive childhood and should have died many times. I survived a 15-year abusive marriage and should have died many times also. I know God and his love are the reasons I lived. I have felt His love every day and give thanks. I'm not perfect by any means but my trials in life have taught me many things. I could have become bitter, or an addict, or worse...but Romans 12:21 is the verse that has the most meaning for me personally and I'll admit sometimes I do get down or start feeling angry towards others that have hurt me and loved ones so bad...but I remind myself to "Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good".
  • Precious
    I'm that person also and has I read your comments, all that you been through is me also, I have to remind myself, that he said vengeance is mine because so many times I want the people who hurt me to feel the same pain they put me through, sometimes I stay up at night trying to figure out how can I hurt that person, that causes me so much pain, because they're still enjoying life and I'm still hurting, , but by the grace of god I'm praying and learning each day that god is my strength, if I don't stay in his words, my mind start thinking vengeance.
  • Starr
    Precious--

    You know we are strong survivors though. For me, and probably you also I hope...because of what I've been through I have been able to empathize, comfort, and HELP others that are hurting. I never did anything to deserve all the pain, however, I do know God chose me and you for probably that reason, to HELP someone else. God has also put "Earth Angels" in my life at different times. I hope you know what I'm talking about. There have been several people most of which were strangers, that did or said a small thing that impacted me and I knew God made us cross paths. One important thing I was told and helps me also is that people that abuse others it is mostly about control. So if I continued to feel down or let what the abusers did to me affect me negatively, then the abuser is still in control and "winning". So I do not want the abusers to have any satisfaction and do my best to stay positive. Also, I cannot fathom how a true HUMAN could be so evil and inflict so much pain. I know people like that must have a demon in them, it is the only explanation. So I do pray for them, for them to be released of their demons and for them to find God, find faith so that they may stop hurting others. May God bless you!
  • WhiteheadHobart for verse 18
    Failure is due to the neglect of fineness, and success begins with the importance of small things

    What Is God's Will 4 Me Today ?
    -- In Every Situation
  • I Die Daily
    In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. - 1 Thessalonians 5:18
  • Confused
    Follow Him.
  • CG Palmer
    God's Will for all is revealed in His Written Word. Study, know, and obey what you know until you know more. Here's a good place to start; "Abstain from all appearance of evil." 1 Thessalonians 5:22 KJV
  • I, even I, am that Michael Isaac Dale:
    Hearken now, ye men, unto my Holy Father. No lie is of the truth: and no truth is of a liar. Know ye not that the wicked, full of envy as they await condemnation, shew false strength and courage as they desire to lead ye to their own eternal damnation? For they who hate Christ hate his chosen. So hate pride and learn of Christ. Confess your sins then believe the truth. Turn yourselves and live ye.

    This is a great chapter!
  • CHIGOZIE
    The scripture teaches me to trust in God's promises, esp. when i see or hear others testify of the work of God in their lives to be faithful wait for my turn, though there may be lots of trials, temptations challenges, but with the patience in job fervent prayers in righteousness sincerity, the answer is certain.
  • Edu
    I am bless with that write up to wait on God who is faithful to perform His promises in our lives
  • Lilian
    Amen praise the Lord
  • Lauren
    This chapter means so much to me; it shows how to live a true Christian life, and how to stand in the service of God, and I love every aspect of it.
  • J.J. Simms
    It is our job as Christians to be dutiful, like-minded and business focused on the Life of Christ. we know and accept that this world is wicked but we are not to be a part of the wickedness. in every darkness even the smallest light shines bright, it is our job to be as bright as we can.
  • Joe
    Kadine - I'm sure many others here are better able to explain than I, but I will try. Said another way, pay no attention to social standings (high things). God is no respecter of persons as stated in various bible verses. Adopt a meek and humble position for yourself.
  • Kadine
    I want to understand what roman's 12 verse 16 mean mind not high things could u help me to understand
  • Brett Hartman
    We should do everything in our ability to keep peace between ourselves and our fellow man, though sometimes that peace will not be possible on account of that other party.
  • BSP
    Verse 2~We want to prove to ourselves what is good and acceptable to God. We don't just want to take someone else's word for it. We should make a thorough search of the Bible and see what Jehovah God wants us to do.
  • Chris A
    vs 17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.

    vs 18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
  • Mikey D K
    Woe B me -- I have known this verse 4 yrs -- Only I have not seen followed its core message. Until very recently--!- Open--True Surrender --!!-- 2 a merciful God !! Pray 4 Me US
  • BSP
    We want to present ourselves as a living sacrifice to Jehovah God. We should strive to live each day according to his ways and standards and we want to be as holy as we can be in imitation of God.
  • Lilian
    Let your body be Holy and acceptable with God for He is Holy. Abba Father wash me by your blood and cleanse my heart and my soul and help me to be born again every moment of my life.You are my strength and my life thank you Jesus for being with me all the time I love you and will praise you forever Jehova Jireh the Lord my Provider thank you for blessing me and all my blessing that are yet to com
  • Anit
    With this, I will try to give more and ask less. Not just of worldly goods, but of myself

  • Sandra Edmund
    Romans 12:21
    Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
    (This is so true for everyone)
  • BSP
    Verse 19~God has not given us the right to avenge ourselves. We must leave vengeance in the hands of Jehovah God.
  • Ann Hering
    An enemy to the Apostle Paul was an “enemy” of the cross of Christ! Those are God’s enemies, too!
