"For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand." (Ephesians 6:12-13) He then goes on to define this armor of God--worthy of memorization. (vv. 14-18)
Don't get me wrong. It feels like we are wrestling flesh and blood at times. But the truth is that the enemy of God is prowling like a lion, seeking to kill, steal, and destroy what Christ died to give--namely abundant, peaceful, joyful living. May we keep our perspective and remember the true battle.
