“A stronghold is more than sin. Satan has taken a natural desire in us and supercharged it to create something beyond our control. He has twisted a weakness we have into a binding knot where he is holding the ropes. It is not something we can overcome on our own by trying really hard or being really “good.” A stronghold is a spiritual battle Satan is waging for our souls. This battle is fought in the spiritual realm and is beyond what we can fight without the Spirit’s help.
“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.”
