2 Corinthians 10:4

God’s Promise – “I will give you My power to destroy spiritual strongholds.”

The Bible describes a spiritual stronghold as a wrong belief which is strongly defended or upheld. Slowly formed over time by the lies of the Enemy, strongholds are used to keep us in bondage and under Satan’s thumb. “Spiritual strongholds begin with a thought. One thought becomes a consideration. A consideration develops into an attitude, which leads then to action. Action repeated becomes a habit, and a habit establishes a power base for the Enemy….(Elizabeth Elliot) But as children of the Most High, we can break down even the strongest fortress of the Enemy. And no wrong thinking or sinful barrier stands a chance. For we have the full armor of God at our disposal. (Eph. 6:14-17) And when we are covered head to toe in our Christian uniform, there isn’t a stronghold that can withstand the full might and power of Almighty God!
