Am I a Victim of Bondage
A sinking ship
I got a stronghold on me
Have you ever felt like you had a stronghold on you? Something that you just can't get off your back? Something that grips you day after day?
Strongholds take the form of many things, all caused to self destruct. They can be anger, guilt, unforgiveness, fear, depression, debt, sickness, addiction or just life without meaning. In other words, Strongholds that keep us from being happy/content in life. They consume and destroy.
We cannot move forward while we are in the grips/ in agreement with bondage. It is when we are in disagreement with it that we can be set apart from it and no longer be held in its captivity.
Satan is the master of deception. He uses these strongholds to decieve us, to keep us from the truth and hold us in bondage. All sin is bondage. God says "Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free"John 8:32. That we can be free from deception/strongholds. Jesus said: Everything is possible for him who believes" Mark 9:23. This is Gods promise!
Jesus desires your freedom. Whatever is destroying your life is not the will of God. "What is impossible with men is possible with God" Luke 18:27 and "For nothing is impossible with God" Luke 1:37.
We need to step out in Faith and trust in God! "Trust in the lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding" Proverbs 3:5 and "Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the lord is kept safe" Proverbs 29:25.
God is more powerful than any stronghold that Satan has on us. Replace those strongholds with a stronghold in jesus Christ. Let him be your stronghold!!! He will pull you out of the pit that Satan has put you in and give you freedom from ALL bondage. Amen!!!
