A strong­hold is a lie. When we believe the lie and act out on the lie Satan builds up a strong­hold in our lives.

There are many sources of these lies (all com­ing from Satan). Sometimes it is just a thought that pops into our mind.

It comes from peo­ple in the world. Lies can come from friends and fam­i­ly. Lies can come from even our Church lead­ers.

Examples of lies. God doesn’t exist. God doesn’t love me. We have messed up Gods plan for our lives so why change. Suffering is bad and must be avoid­ed at all costs. If we suf­fer we must have done some­thing wrong. (for the truth see James 1:2–4 [show]ERROR: The IP key is no longer sup­port­ed. Please use your access key, the test­ing key ‘TEST

When we believe the lies we don’t live the way God would have us live.

. These are our weapons against the strong­holds of the evil one. Spiritual dis­ci­plines are our weapons against the lies of Satan.

With every new defense a new weapon is also devel­oped. Sometimes we face Satan with spit balls and BB guns instead of the best weapons, spir­i­tu­al weapons that God pro­vides us through His Spirit.

So how do we demol­ish the strong­holds? Take cap­tive of every thought.

We have to rec­og­nize the strong­holds in our life. Stress, anger, anx­i­ety, fear, and depres­sion are key signs of liv­ing the lie of Satan.

Knock down the strong­holds with God’s truth. As we hold on to God’s truth we will knock down those strong­holds that Satan would build against us.

It all starts with con­fess­ing Jesus is Lord of our lives. The one strong­hold we should have is Christ Jesus.
