The above excerpt was taken from an old book on strongholds.
Now let’s look at what the Bible says about strongholds.
“For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:3-5.
A few things to consider
After reading the description of a stronghold, is there anything in your life you would consider a stronghold?
Is there something you are struggling with that has had a stronghold on you for some time?
What are you doing to break the stronghold(s) in your life?
Have you asked the Lord to help you break the stronghold(s)?
The Lord is faithful in helping us break the strongholds in our life if we ask for his help. Trying to break strongholds on our own only brings further defeat. We must ask for help from the one who knows us best, our Heavenly Father.
Don’t walk around carrying your strongholds around like you carry a backpack. Set yourself free from the weight of strongholds and experience what it is like to live freely and joyfully for the Lord.
