"For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world-rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places." Ephesians 6:12

I can relate this to many things in my life. Being falsely accused. Struggles with family harmony. Grandparents who interfere in the upbringing of our children. Government. Work. Etc.

What a great reminder that when we are having problems with things in life, there is more to it than just the problem itself.

There are people in our lives that we dearly love, but due to their behavior, we have decided to start spending less time with them. I know it's the right decision for now. But this verse helps me see that the struggle we are having with them isn't just with them. It's bigger than that. This verse helps the situation feel less painful.
