Breaking Strong holds
So many people today are living below the level God intends because they have mental strongholds holding them back. A stronghold is simply a wrong thinking pattern. It’s an area in our mind that is not in agreement with God’s Word. A stronghold will hold you back and keep you from God’s best. That’s why the scripture tells us in Second Corinthians 10 verse 4 that we’ve got to pull down these strongholds.
Some people have a stronghold of inferiority or insecurity. They don’t really think they’re good enough. They don’t think they deserve God’s blessings. But the Bible says that, “We are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.” Our worth is not based on what we do; our worth is based on what God has already done through His Son, Jesus. Because He loves you, God wants to pour out His goodness in your life. He wants to pour out His blessings, but you’re going to have to do your part and start living with confidence and holding your head up high knowing that you’re a child of the Most High God.
Some people have a stronghold that tells them, “You’re never going to be successful. You’ve just had too much come against you in life. You don’t really have the education you need. You’re not talented enough. You don’t come from the right family.” No, if you believe those lies, you will never reach your full potential. God’s Word says that you can do all things through Christ who gives you strength! It doesn’t matter where you’ve come from, you are well able to accomplish the dreams and desires He’s placed in your heart.
I’m challenging you today to change your thinking and break those strongholds by the power of Almighty God. Breaking strongholds is like reprogramming a computer. You have to rewrite the information in your mind. You have to start thinking like God thinks by meditating on His Word. Focus on the truth that God is a good God, and He has a great plan. As you renew your mind to the Word of God, you will break those strongholds and set yourself on a path of victory in every area of your life!
