A stronghold has many meanings. It was used often to describe a fortified defensive structure in English literature. It could be said to be a tower of strength or a prison. If GOD is our stronghold he is our STRENGTH and protection but if the enemy has us it becomes a dungeon or prison. Don’t we want to be free? Than there is truly only ONE STRONGHOLD we need and that is CHRIST!
Holding only to CHRIST no matter what is happening, being said against you, being thrown at you, or what your circumstances look like. Let JESUS be your STRONG HOLD!!
I have found GOD to be true, even though every man be a liar. (Romans 3:4)
To topple the “stronghold of our experiences” we must “let GOD be found true, though every man be found a liar.”
The only one who has power to shape our lives is JESUS CHRIST.
We must determine to allow NOTHING to shape us, not even our personal experiences, unless they are consistent with the promises of God.
In truth, who is ruling our lives, GOD or our experiences?
Satan loves to work in secrets and shame. Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. (Romans 8)
They went out and preached that people should repent… So the disciples went out, telling everyone they met to repent of their sins and turn to God. (Mark 6:12)
Daily, we must walk in the “shelter of the Most High” (Ps. 91:1).
