“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.” Ephesians 6:12
One of the biggest tricks that satan pulls on Christians and gets away with is deceiving us into believing that people are our enemies and that we are fighting with flesh and blood. He will move on people to talk about us or to do unkind things to us and then try to get us to look at those people as our enemies and the ones that we are fighting with. Today is the day that he needs to stop getting away with that in your life. Realize today that satan is your enemy. When attacks seem to be originating with people, turn your attention toward satan and come against him with the Word of God. Find the Scriptures that deal with the issue at hand, take authority over and rebuke him and then walk in love towards other people.
