Satan wants you to think the people or specific person that hurt you is the enemy, but that isn’t true.
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:12)
Your REAL enemy is Lucifer, known as Satan or the Devil. He is a fallen Angel that seeks to turn humanity against God. His goal is to hurt us and allow painful situations to fill us with fear, heartbreak, worry, and distrust in God. Satan wants us to be in pain and distrust God, so he can convince us to sin in our moments of weakness.
- When people feel used they tend to lash out on others.
- Guilt causes some to drown away their sorrows with addictions.
- Insecurity becomes pride and cause us to judge everyone around us.
- Fear that God wont provide causes us to rob, steal, kill, and destroy.
- Loneliness can cause people to sleep around or jump from one relationship to another.
- Selfishness starts from feeling empty, such people tend to use people to feel full.
- When people feel scared, disappointed, or hopeless they may become disobedient to God.
Those were just a few of the reactions that people have when they’re in pain. I hope reading through the list helped you to see how Satan wants people to be in pain and hurt others. So, these prayers to destroy your enemies, based on scriptures, will focus on destroying Satan’s plans and sending his demonic minions back to hell.
"Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour." 1 Peter 5:8
