Accurately Defining Evil Prepares the Mindset Morally for Self Defense

Dealing with Evil through Good . . .

When I choose to focus on God while starting my day, throughout my day and when lying down to sleep at night, I find His strategies flow within me to deal with and overcome anything I may face.  His gentle nudges remind me to do the things I should to stay healthy, keep relationships pure and genuine and to love others. It was His strategy for me to learn everything I could about self defense and personal protection.

Luke 22:35-36
And He said to them, “When I sent you out without money belt and bag and sandals, you did not lack anything, did you?” They said, “No, nothing.” And He said to them, “But now, whoever has a money belt is to take it along, likewise also a bag, and whoever has no sword is to sell his coat and buy one.…

I told my instructor, a former Special Forces trainer, I wasn’t afraid of death especially since burying a child and a spouse and feeling so close to the reality of heaven where they dwell now.  He said to me that was great for my family to know and remember when it’s my time to depart this earth.  He further said those thoughts would not keep me alive in a life threatening encounter and that it was my job to stay alive for God’s purposes to be fulfilled in the earth through me. That was a sobering moment that change my mindset completely.  He gave me a driving force to face evil like Jesus instructed the disciples in Luke 22:35-36.  Yet I must simultaneously be tender to hear God’s instructions when and how much force to display so I don’t counteract His will or plans like his disciple mistakenly tried in the Garden when they came to arrest Jesus.

Luke 22:49-51
When the other disciples saw what was about to happen, they exclaimed, “Lord, should we fight? We brought the swords!”  And one of them struck at the high priest’s slave, slashing off his right ear. But Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye them thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him.

So how do you keep this gentle but committed balance when it comes to fighting evil and defending your family? There are definitely two dimensions to dealing with evil – the spiritual and the natural.  Know God – like a friend – and He will give you strategies for both.  He will also give a powerful presence of His peace to face whatever comes your way.
