Ephesians 6 (KJV)

4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition (an act or action of admonishing; authoritative counsel or warning.) of the Lord.

5 Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;

6 Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers (people pleasing); but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;
7 With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:
8 Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.

9 And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect (favoritism) of persons with him.
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles (lure, entice) of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Do not take it personal.  Those who are coming at you with negative energies or those who are froward (difficult to deal with).  Remember we are only visitors here on earth.  The fight is not with the person, but the sinful nature.  We live in a dark and wicked domain as well, that works against our spirit.   We have to wear our armor;  the Holy Spirit, to protect us from the wickedness of this dark world. ~ Karmen

14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt (encircled) about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod (cover) with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Hold on to the truth, be full of righteousness.  Always be prepared to hold your peace.  Shield yourself with your faith because their will be all types of wickedness hurled your way.  Know you are wearing God's Crown of Glory at all times.  Carry the Bible with you at all times ~  Karmen

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication (the action of asking or begging for something earnestly or humbly.) in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication (the action of asking or begging for something earnestly or humbly.) for all saints;

Always Pray!!!  Especially during those times you are tempted to respond with the sinful nature....pray for your Sisters and Brothers in Christ as well; for they too may be tempted to answer with worldly speech.  Pray for perseverance for yourself and all Christians!  Pray earnestly! ~ Karmen

19 And for me, that utterance an uninterrupted (chain of spoken or written language.) may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
