What if we can find a way of loving those who are against us so that they become our friends? That’s prevailing. That’s overcoming in a Kingdom sense. Just to win against people, that’s a worldly thing. But to win an oppositional person’s heart because we embrace them in the same grace that God does with us? That changes everything. God doesn’t want us to beat people down, He wants us to lift people up!
