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 heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12

You see two wrestlers in a ring, but only one of them wants to wrestle the other. So, the one who doesn’t want to wrestle is forced to wrestle by reason of the place he finds himself in.

Now, if you were that pacifist wrestler there in the ring, what would you think your opponent’s one goal is? It would be to pin you down for the count, right? To render you powerless over him, right?

So, as disciples of Jesus we are like riders on the storm, we are thrust into this world whether we like it or not, and it’s sink or swim, stand or fall.

What does our opponent want to do to us? Render us powerless. To steal our faith and our love.

So, the primary way in which the demonic realm wrestles against us is to do anything to keep us from praying, and once we are praying, to distract us from effectively praying in the Holy Spirit the express will and Kingdom of God.
