Look At The Big Picture

12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. ~ Ephesians 6:12

Did you see that? Paul said we do not wrestle against flesh and blood. He did not say we do not wrestle, period. But instead, he said we do not wrestle against flesh and blood.

He wrote that by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. And the way it is written, it expects us to be in the wrestling match. So, he is giving direction on who it is that we are to be wrestling against so that we are not wrestling any and everyone.

    • It is not the driver that just cut us off that we are wrestling against
    • It is not our boss who is a tyrant
    • It is not even the world leaders who are blindly led by an unseen hand to impoverish the world and subjugate every man, woman, and child upon the earth.

It’s the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places that we wrestle and war against. We aren’t in a physical fistfight. We’re in a spiritual struggle for our very souls, and the souls of our loved ones, as well as the souls of those around us. So, whether you’re wrestling or not, you are in the ring, and if you do not fight back, you will be pinned, and your harvest will be taken.

You will be left to wonder why you are never ever able to collect a harvest. And you will not be able to realize what’s going on. So, when you’re discouraged or angry at the situation you are currently in, take a step back and look at the big picture. We’re in a spiritual battle for our soul, Jesus may have overcome the world, but the battle isn’t over yet. It’s now our turn to overcome and fight for our souls and the souls of our loved ones.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Look At The Big Picture.
