2 Cor 10:10-11
But whom you forgive anything, I forgive also; for indeed what I have forgiven, if I have forgiven nything, I did it for your sakes in the presence of Christ, 11 in order that no advantage be taken of us by satan; for we are not ignorant of his schemes.

It is a comforting thought to Christians that "greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world." Christians have the Holy Spirit in them, and thus have more power than satan. However, it is possible for a Christian to be delivered to satan for the destruction of the body. Thus, our enemy sometimes is given power to chastize us. satan goes about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.

Now if you want the enemy to make a snack of you, one way you can encourage this is by being unforgiving and holding a grudge.
