Do you get angry at people? Read this

I heard one unpalatable news about someone and I was pissed. Really pissed. Slowly but surely the anger began to brew. Thankfully, the Holy Spirit interjected and reminded me of the passage; For we wrestle not against flesh and blood. Folks, that anger dissipated immediately.

The day that that passage (Ephesians 6:12) settles within you is the last day you will be able to hold anyone in forgiveness or get overly pissed off with someone.

Now that I think about it, I think it’s the reason Christ while on the Cross was able to say “Father forgive them”. Similar with Stephen and others who died gruesomely and forgave while in persecution.

Ephesians 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

My Bus Trip

Bus Conductor

This morning on my way out, I had to switch buses*.  The former conductor gave the money I gave him to this new conductor and the journey continued.

Few minutes later, the new conductor tapped me and asked me for money. I gave him the look and reminded him of the former conductor’s payment. The rest is history.

The enemy acts in like manner; he always asks for things that have been done seeking to steal, kill and destroy what is rightfully ours. From your finances to health to relationships etc but we must always take a stand based on the

God’s promises. Is 53:4-5 contains one of such promises.

PS* In Nigeria, buses are typically managed by conductors. They collect the cash and communicate with the driver on where to stop depending on passengers’ destination.
