Jeremiah 32:27 -
the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing to hard for me?
You can be victorious, your enemies will be cut off but, Be careful what you pray for, you might get it.
Pray for protection from those that are out to harm you. Pray that whatever pit they would dig for you, they would fall into it!
Psalms 35:7 -
For without cause they hid their net for me; Without cause they dug a pit for my soul.
Let destruction come upon him unawares, And let the net which he hid catch himself; Into that very destruction let him fall.
They have prepared a net for my
steps; My soul is bowed down; They dug a pit before me; They themselves have fallen into the midst of it. Selah.
Proverbs 26:27 -
He who digs a pit will fall into it, And he who rolls a stone, it will come back on him.
If you are anything like I was, you don't want to Bind Satan from your enemies, you want Satan to get them! But this is not what God would have you do! Trust me, if God wants an evil spirit on a person, he will put it there himself. That is not our place.
1-Samuel 16:14 -
Now the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD terrorized him.
Does this surprise you? It did me! An evil spirit from the Lord? Believe me, If you have an evil spirit put on you, you don't want it put there by the Lord and you don't want to be praying evil spirits on people.
For one thing God won't hear or honor that prayer, but Satan will! Then that spirit within that person will turn on you. This time the person will have demonic, supernatural intelligence.
Leave revenge to God! Nobody can dish it out better than he can. This adds a new perspective on how to deal with your enemies doesn't it?
2-Thessalonians 1:6 -
For after all it is only just for God to repay with affliction those who afflict you,
Deuteronomy 32:35 -
'Vengeance is Mine, and retribution, In due time their foot will slip; For the day of their calamity is near, And the impending things are hastening upon them.'
Matthew 5:44 -
"But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you
Granted, as far as how to deal your enemies, this sounds crazy, but for one, by binding Satan, "and you do have the authority to do so", you are prohibiting Satan from using or influencing this person to harm or attack you.
Luke 10:19 -
"Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you.
Matthew 18:18 -
"Truly I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven
Matthew 12:29 -
"Or how can anyone enter the strong man's house and carry off his property, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house.
Learn how to deal with your enemies, and find out who they really are, because 90% of the time you'll find that your real problem isn't with that person or people, but with Satan influencing them.
Ephesians 6:12 -
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
For another, learning how to deal with enemies and praying for your enemies might just bring them to the Lord in which case they would no longer be a threat to you or mistreat you. I have found with allot of people that God had to completely break them so they had nowhere else to turn but to him. This may be what it takes to save your enemy.
The bottom line is, truly love God. Get your heart in the right place. Seek God and live for him and you will find you won't even have to ask him how to deal with your enemies. If someone attacks you, God will deal harshly with them!
Isaiah 54:15 -
"If anyone fiercely assails you it will not be from Me. Whoever assails you will fall because of you.
The word assail can mean physical or verbal . Etc..! This does come with a warning! When God does come down on your enemy (even if they do deserve it) try not to enjoy it, just pray for them!
Proverbs 24:17 -
Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, And do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles;
Proverbs 24:18 -
Or the LORD will see it and be displeased, And turn His anger away from him.
(Do you see how God wants you to act?)
PRAY FOR YOUR ENEMIES AND "BIND SATAN" FROM THEM
Having enemies and having to know how to deal with enemies and people who hate you, doesn't necessarily mean you did something to deserve it. Matter of fact, You are in good company. Jesus had plenty of enemies and never harmed anyone.
So, How to Deal with Enemies? Don't! Let God deal with them.
If you don't already have enemies, you probably will. Especially if you are a Christian. I always believed , just don't deal treacherously with people and you won't have enemies. But that's not true.
Personally, I have found that enemies are acquired from simply standing up for what you believe to be right and/or disagreeing with people! If people hate you because you are a Christian, you are truly blessed!
Matthew 5:11 -
"Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.
LIVE ACCORDING TO GOD'S WILL
Proverbs 16:7 -
When a man's ways are pleasing to the LORD, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
When you are pleasing to God, he will viciously stand against your enemies. He will not only show you how to deal with your enemies, God will lift your hand against them.
Micah 5:8 -
Like a young lion among flocks of sheep, Which, if he passes through, Tramples down and tears, And there is none to rescue.
Micah 5:9 -
Your hand will be lifted up against your adversaries, And all your enemies will be cut off.
This is very powerful! Do you hear what God is saying? If you are living for God and according to his will, he is telling you how he will attend to your enemies.
God is not just saying he will slap your enemies on the hand, he is comparing it to a lion tearing apart a flock of sheep!
Be careful what you pray for, You might get it! You may find as I have that God may deal even "more" harshly with your enemies than even you would have.
Either way, don't rejoice when bad things happen to your enemy and don't dispute Gods wisdom. Just pray for them!
The key here is: Seek God with all your heart. Live to please him. God takes care of his own. God knows how to deal with your enemies.
Romans 8:31 -
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us?
Psalms 18:3 -
I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies.
God Bless You
