A Different Kind of Stronghold


We have been talking about the stronghold that Jesus provides for us. We can safely move inside that fortress for protection. He stands right in the middle where the cannon would go to shield us.

I bet you have figured out that there is another kind of stronghold, one that is much different. There is an enemy that has a fortress that has shackles waiting for us. Remember the scripture found in Ephesians 6:10

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.”

Satan is powerful and the sooner we put that concept into our brain the better. He is out to destroy our lives. He wants nothing better than to grab one of God’s people. So, he individualizes a stronghold for each of us. For some it is gossip, for some it is jealousy, for some it is bad attitudes. Most of us are not tempted to kill or rob a store. But we sure get tempted to put down another sister or engage in “foolish talk”.

Tomorrow I am going to talk about some of Satan’s strongholds. Spend some time thinking about them.
Till tomorrow.
In Christ Alone,
Jill
