Demolishing Strongholds

This week in Scripture we've been looking at strongholds:

  • Sunday: Do not war in the flesh
  • Monday: Material or financial strongholds
  • Tuesday: Sexual strongholds
  • Wednesday: Physical strongholds
  • Thursday: Relational strongholds
  • Friday: Spiritual strongholds

    Today, we'll look at how to demolish strongholds.

    First of all, we need to go on the attack. Proverbs 21:22 says, "A wise man scales the city of the mighty And brings down the stronghold in which they trust." We aren't to just sit around waiting for things to get better. We are to go on the offensive.

    But how? Remember 2 Corinthians 10:3: "For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh"

    Our primary weapons are:

    Prayer -- James 5:16: The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

    Truth -- John 8:32: "You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

    The abortion lobby would have you believe that standing between a woman and an abortionist is some sort of bad news. But we are there to proclaim to the vulnerable woman the Good News. Remember Isaiah 61:1:

    The Spirit of the Almighty LORD is with me because the LORD has anointed me to deliver good news to humble people. He has sent me to heal those who are brokenhearted, to announce that captives will be set free and prisoners will be released.

    She is not alone. She is not abandoned. And she doesn't need to sacrifice her child.

    Now get out there and take it on.
