What is Behind This?
- Wounded Soul
This comes after forms of abuse, rejection, rape, divorce, abandonment, molestation, etc. People will tend to carry emotions such as depression, bitterness, resentment, hatred, and signs of emotional disorders.
Hopelessness is thinking that there is no such thing as a “better day tomorrow!” People do not believe that we have a fresh start everyday. One mistake feels like the end of the world.
- Believing Lies & Deception (Examples)
“My life is never going to change.”
“I am not good enough for anything.”
“Nobody loves me; nobody cares for me.”
“The world would be better off without me.”
If these are your constant thoughts, then you are believing in lies from the enemy. Jesus Christ loves you so much and He sees you so worthy to be loved that He gave His life for you so that you would live. Have hope! You are destined for good things and a good life in Christ!
- Spirit of Betrayal
Matthew 27-Judas takes his life
When you betray people, you start feeling disgusted with yourself. Feelings of self-hatred and bitterness come with this spirit. You begin to feel remorse, which is of the flesh, rather than repentance which is of God.
Remorse and repentance are two different things. Remorse is not of the Lord. Repentance allows you to be forgiven and start fresh! Learn to repent, brush off the dust, and keep moving! Keep your eyes on Jesus. You are growing and learning.
- Rebellion & Disobedience—Witchcraft
Those who carry spirits of rebellion and disobedience are always angry with others and God. They also have a spirit of revenge and are constantly blaming other people for everything.
- Victim Mentality
You are your own idol! This is an open door to demonic forces.
Ex: “Poor me. Look at me!” This is victim mentality.
- Self-hatred—Bulimia, Anorexia, Self-harm
Ex: Cutting themselves, other health issues.
- No Purpose/Meaningless Life
Suicide takes place when people have no desire to live. They have no goals or real purpose for themselves, but God does. Life is worth living if you are living your life in obedience to God.
Attacks of the Spirit of Suicide include:
Mind Battles: Keep your mind sober! Cast negative thoughts out of your mind. Praise and worship will cast out evil.
King Saul & Judas in the Bible—Common Qualities: Both Took their Lives out of Disobedience, Betraying God, & Rebellion
- God rejected King Saul as King. God took the title/position, but He could still receive Saul if Saul went on his knees in repentance.
- Judas had remorse after handing Jesus over to His enemies. He took his own life because he did not turn to God.
Prayer of Deliverance
Lord Jesus, I humbly come before you now and I put myself under your authority. You are my High Priest Jesus and you are Lord and Lords and King of Kings. Father, I bind the spirits of depression, disobedience, betrayal, Judas spirit, and bitterness in my life. Cleanse me with your precious blood, Jesus, and remove everything that is not of you from my body, spirit, and soul.
Heal my wounds and give me new life and strength in you, Lord Jesus. Fix my eyes on you so that I will be grateful for my life every single day. Thank you for having good and perfect plans for me! Thank you for loving me, Jesus, and for dying on the Cross for me. I release all my cares to you and I receive your peace and joy in Jesus’ name.
I love you, Lord, and I want to live my life for you, giving you glory always. Help me to do this every day. Help me to love myself and others the way you do, Jesus. I seal this prayer with your blood, Jesus and in your glorious name. Amen.
2 Samuel 22:29
You are my lamp O Lord; the Lord turns my darkness into light.
You have granted me life and favor, and Your care has preserved my spirit.
I will lie down in peace and sleep, for though I am alone, Oh Lord, you will keep me safe.
For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; with favor You will surround him as with a shield.
No one whose hope is in you will ever be put to shame.
You are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.
You are my hiding place from every storm of life; You even keep me from getting into trouble! You surround me with songs of victory. I will instruct you (says the Lord) and guide you along the best pathway for your life; I will advise you and watch your progress. Don’t be like a senseless horse or mule that has to have a bit in its mouth to keep it in line!
Psalm 34:18, 19
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all.
Psalm 37:23, 24
If the Lord delights in a man’s way, he makes his steps firm; though he stumbles, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand.
Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.
Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall.
Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him.
You answer us with awesome deeds of righteousness, O God our Savior, the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas.
For you have been my hope, O Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth.
But as for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.
I have put my hope in your word.
Sustain me according to your promise, and I will live….
The LORD upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down.
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
Surely, there is a future, and your hope will not be cut off.
Isaiah 26:3-4, Philippians 4:6-7
You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.
And the ransomed of the Lord will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
No, I will not abandon you or leave you as orphans in the storm – I will come to you.
I am leaving you with a gift – peace of mind and heart! And the peace I give isn’t fragile like the peace the world gives. So don’t be troubled or afraid.
We are saved by trusting. And trusting means looking forward to getting something we don’t yet have – for a man who already has something doesn’t need to hope and trust that he will get it. But if we must keep trusting God for something that hasn’t happened yet, it teaches us to wait patiently and confidently.
For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
2 Corinthians 3:12
Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are very bold.
Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up.
Do not be overwicked, and do not be a fool- why die before your time?
