“Because of sin and your family’s past, you can have certain temptations, inclinations, and vulnerabilities. If we are going to think differently and live in godly ways, we have to do some identifying and demolishing of those generational sin strongholds.“ JM
I took a bible study one time that focused on strongholds, particularly generational strongholds. Admittedly, I didn’t know such a thing existed.
If you get time, read about a guy named Jacob who lived in Old Testament times. You will see what I am talking about.
Jacob was subject to generational strongholds and he passed those same strongholds onto his children.
We have a chance to break those strongholds in our lives and break the cycle – we don’t have to pass them onto to our children. The cycle of dysfunction can stop with us if we desire.
