"We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but...against spiritual wickedness in high places."

  Every single one of us whether we be black, white, grey, or purple. Rich, poor, or something in the middle. Tall, short, skinny, fat, weak, or strong. Every single human being goes to war every single day! Not against an actual physical being, but agains someone who knows us, probably, better than we know ourselves. The great thing is that our Heavenly Father has given us instruction to protect ourselves from any harm that may befall us. 
     Ephesians 6:11-18 
        11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles 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. 
        14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 
        15 And your feet shod 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
        17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God
        18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
  We can come off conqueror with whatever temptation, or evil thing that may come across our paths each day. If we take heed to this scripture, and put on our whole Armour of God, by reading our scriptures, keeping the commandments, and having faith that our Heavenly Father will protect us from all the evils of the world, we will be able to "stand against the wiles of the devil."
