We Do Not Wrestle…

Photobucket

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 ESV

Have you ever walked a man try to wrestle a cow? It is quite breath taking – he has to wedge himself and put all of his energy into it; there is not stopping for breath, its all or nothing kind of fight. That is how our spiritual war is – we need to be putting our ALL into our fight against our flesh no matter how many times we seem to fail because there is more than just a small fleshly battle being fought – it’s the fight for our souls and our children’s souls.

Welcome to WFW!

There are very few rules, in fact the beauty of this ministry is the creative expression that God reveals Himself thorough. We marvel at the creativity that participants post with this meme. We encourage the ” post behind the picture,” or the reflections that many of the participants share. We ask that non-biblical resources not be used.

WFW is not about books, authors, artists.. it’s about God and HIS WORD ONLY. WFW is about celebrating the gift of creativity through God’s Word.

Join myself and some other wonderful ladies as we share by signing into to the Link below!

  2. Blessings Amydeanne… I think you meant to say “Have you ever watched a man wrestle a steer? (cow)?” Great VERSE for this wrestling event!!! When I looked through your rodeo photos… I thought of this and wondered if you had done this verse with any of the photos… I love your comparison to all or no fight with our spiritual fight. You are so right! It is all out power to wrestle a steer or spiritual forces. We need to constantly keep this warning from Ephesians in front of us and recall in the midst of a “fight” it may not or probable isn’t at all the flesh and blood of the person we are in conflict. I’m so thankful that God send His warrior angels to help us in spiritual battles when we call on His name! EXCELLENT, powerful verse and great photo shot! I love a good rodeo! Thanks for the emphasis on WRESTLE!
    “For I do not wrestle against flesh and blood but against rulers and authorities, cosmic powers and spiritual evil forces… in heavenly places.”
    But it’s not by might, nor by power, but by the Spirit!!!

    Have a wonderful WEDS and week!

  3. Oh Amy- this is awesome! One of my grandchildren and I were just talking about spiritual warfare. I’ll have to show this to him – and his brothers. Thanks for such a great illustration of such an important spiritual fact of life. Have a blessed day!

  8. Oh – I was definitely wrestling this weekend, just like that man in the picture, against my flesh. Your visual puts it in just the perspective I need. Raising boys sometimes is like bull wrestling – and, well, sometimes I need to turn away from tangling with them and just wrestle the one who eggs me on to respond poorly. Just the reminder on who my battle is really against! I needed that today!
