Being Bullied?

If you are being bullied, either as a child or a teen or even as an adult at work, don’t seek to get even, seek to pray for them. That’s not easy but it is biblical. Pray for those who hate us and then ask God to bless those who curse us and abuse us but it cannot be done in our own strength. It takes the Spirit of God to enable us to do good to those who do bad things to us and to pray for God’s blessing on those who are cursing us, therefore, as Jesus said, we must love our enemies, knowing that at one time, we were enemies of God, but the truth is, He died for us so that we might be spared the wrath of God.

Luke 6:27-29 ... But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,  Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.  And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also.

Romans 12:18-19 ... If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.  Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

Matthew 5:44-45 ... But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.❤
