Tear Down Your Strongholds Part 2

Divider

A wise man scales the city of the mighty and brings down the stronghold in which they trust.

Proverbs 21:22


Strongholds in our lives don’t build up overnight. Just as it took time to be enslaved, sometimes it takes a little more time for our freedom. Yet if we keep pressing ourselves every day to overcome, we will see improvements. Some of us will experience immediate deliverance and can move forward. Others may take a longer time. However, if we remain focused more on God than our stronghold, it will eventually be destroyed and made powerless in our lives.

Our old mindsets and habits resist the change that needs to happen for us to grow in our spiritual walk. Sometimes even family members and friends are more comfortable with our strongholds than we are. Because of this, we may be tempted to fall back into what we know will only bring us further away from God’s purpose.

We aren’t getting rid of our strongholds based on our own strength or willpower. This is man’s way of overcoming his weaknesses. Rather, we are leaning on the Holy Spirit to empower us with the motivation and strength to press forward in the faith. He will never let us down. He will use the Word of God, godly people, songs, and situations that will encourage us to move forward. The Lord will also provide a way for us to escape our temptations if we are willing to look for them.

One day our strongholds will come down one way or another. Just as a large oak tree finally succumbs to rotten roots, we will see our strongholds destroyed as the Lord invigorates, restores, and moves our inner heart toward freedom.

Prayer

Dear Lord, I want to be free. I pray for discernment and perseverance to follow through in the breaking down of the strongholds in my life. In Jesus’ name, amen.

In His Service,
