Bully- a blustering, quarrelsome, overbearing person who browbeat smaller or weaker people.
I can still remember being chased around the kindergarten play-ground by one of my classmates. I don’t remember a name but I remember he was a big kid and he scared me. He must have thought it was fun to chase me and make me cry. I don’t know who came up with “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me”. It all hurts! Some people have no sensitivity as to what effect hurtful words spoken can do to a person. Especially if they repeatedly use the same wording over and over again. We have an enemy out there. He can try to disguise himself as an angel of light, he will work through people and use them to come against us.
Be sober, be vigilant,because your adversary, the devil walks about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. 1 Peter 5:8 In Ephesians 6: 10 It talks about putting on the armor of God so that we can resist the devil, because our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness,against the spiritual forces of wickedness in heavenly places. We are a target and without the armor the arrows(mean words) (mean people) will penetrate your heart. We need to be alert and not let our guard down. God gives us the tools and instructs us about walking in the Spirit. Bullies need our prayers but above all need God’s help and to come to know of His love….
