"We do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against rulers of the darkness of this world, and against spiritual wickedness in high places" (Eph. 6: 12).
In this verse, Paul reminds us that people are not the real enemy. Our real enemy is the devil and his henchmen. Satan loves to get us to forget that he is the one behind the behavior of those trying to stop us from serving God. Then he likes to get us obsessing about the situation they've put us in. However, we must remember who the real enemy is and extend love and grace to those unwittingly working for him. When he brings bad thoughts to mind about a person, we must reject them and consciously focus on that person's good points and as Jesus commands in Matthew numeral 5:44 "Pray for them." This kind of thinking and acting is the only way to be filled with peace, love and joy during a trial.
