Break the Strongholds

We all have those things in our lives that are so important we idolize them. Maybe not to that extent.. Maybe it’s not even a material thing. It could be video games or maybe it’s an emotion that you are overcome with. These things are strongholds. A stronghold is a place of refuge or a place we go when we need protection. If you get into a fight with your parents or had a bad day at work, you may come home and just soak into playing video games, or you may resort to being angry and taking your anger out on loved ones. For some, they resort to alcohol, drugs, or even self-harm. The problem is that these things will not help us feel better. It will not take the pain and fear away. It will not give you a new insight on things.
1 John 4:4 “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” We need to let Jesus be our stronghold because he has overcome these things and the only way to truly be relieved from them is through Jesus. Jesus is greater than these things and is the only one that can bring us an extreme peace. So let every high thing come down and every stronghold be broken because Jesus is our refuge!
Psalm 9:9 “The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed,a stronghold in times of trouble.”
