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.
