We Wrestle Not Against Flesh And Blood!
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Ephesians 6:12 KJV)
We aren’t supposed to be wrestling or fighting against each other. When we fight with each other the devil just sits back a watches with a big smile on his face. We make his job easy and doing exactly what he wants us to do. That gives him the glory.
Colossians 3:13 says,
Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
All the devil has to do is get a child of God to think and say something about a brother or sister in the Lord and they start arguing and the fight is on. What the one needs to do is bear with the endurance and not let what they say or do bother them and pray for them. (This is the disciplining of ourselves).
They need to stop, apologize and forgive each other and repent for allowing strife and division to enter in. You may ask, what if they don’t forgive me. You keep that between them and God and you continue to keep forgiveness in you heart for them, no matter what they say or do. What they say about you is between them and God.
When we choose to forgive the person that makes us angry or tries to fight with us, we say, No, I will not fight or wrestle and I refuse to allow strife to come in (Again this is the disciplining of ourselves). I choose to walk in the Love of God and be His love.
Let’s let this be an encouragement to ourselves and love one another and have peace with one another.
