Casting down the strong holds in Jesus name
Strong holds are defined as “something” that hold you back from your walk with the LORD Jesus Christ. What is holding you back from receiving spiritual, emotional or physical blessings?
According to the Word of God, it is possible to cast down the strongholds in Jesus’ name.
2 Corinthians 10:3-5 says,
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ,
Let us do some self-analysis in the presence of God and make wise choices in our walk with the LORD. Whether we like it or not we are in the battle (Ephesians 6). Let us put on the full armor of God and fight the good fight.
Hebrews 12: 1-3, says that, therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
“Fix your eyes on Jesus” – In any race there will be two important persons among many other people. Firstly, the starter – the person who says on your mark, set, go and then the referee – the person who receives you at the finish line and gives the first place, second place or third place cards. Remember in our Christian run LORD Jesus is running with us and He knows how to carry us through the storm. We need faith and faith can move the mountains.
Be still – Psalms 46: 10 says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” There are times when we need to be quite in the presence of the LORD by the power of Holy Spirit in order to receive the promises of God according to His time table.
Stand still – Exodus 14: 13 – 14 says, But Moses told the people, “Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the LORD rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again.14 The LORD himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” – If God has promised you some special promise, no matter what, He will give you the ability to achieve it for His glory.
Sit still – Ruth 3: 18 says, Then Naomi said, “Wait, my daughter, until you find out what happens. For the man will not rest until the matter is settled today.” God had decided to raise Ruth as mother of Kings and He accomplished his plan.
If you have some strong holds in your walk with the LORD, today pray about this and receive the delivering power from the mighty hands of God in the name of Jesus – Amen.
May God bless you and keep you in His grace and make you as a channel of blessings
