Understand your real enemy
Matthew 5:44 - But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
It is not easy to be a Christian for one of the tests to be a Christian is to love your enemies. For Christ we become a mirror, what He has shown us we reflect to the world, but for man we do not become a mirror but a picture of Christ. Whatever they do to us should not change us, we still show them Christ in us. It is easy said than done, but if you get the understanding, you will find it easy to do it.
People are like clothes used by spirits, do not hate people. It is only out of they ignorance or lack of understanding they are been used. We should not hate man but the evil spirits that use man. If we get angry or react accordingly, we fall to their game. Jesus said in Matthew 18:21-22 to forgive not just seven times but seventy times seven.
21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?
22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.
This is nothing to do with numbers but if you understand 'seven' stood for wholeness. The word used in the Bible for 'seven' is also translated as 'oath'. So get the deeper picture.
You should understand your real enemy; hate not the enemy you see but the ones you do not see.
So next time you react to another person the way expected, you will see the real enemy laughing at you. He first destroyed that person he used to now start his destruction in you.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord Jesus, You showed us how to be perfect like You. Let me be focused with my spiritual eyes open and see the things that were in the dark. Let me not fall for the spawn but get the real enemy defeated. I ask this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.
