Am I a Victim of Bondage

Updated on February 10, 2012

A sinking ship

Get a stronghold with Jesus Christ!
Get a stronghold with Jesus Christ!

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!!!

      Thank you GarnetBird, strongholds can and will hurt us deeply and can play a huge part in how we turn out today...but if we look at them as helping us grow we can overcome because we are stronger and wiser because of them. Blessings to you my friend!

      Amen heart4theword! Bondage divides our relationships and destroys our lives. We need to release these strongholds that Satan has over us and come out of darkness into the light. Strongholds keep us in a dark and gloomy place and we do not have to remain in that place. We can be free from them once we come to know that we gave them the power and we can be restored and no longer be held in captivity.

      And equip we must be Pastorcarlotta! So many are blind to the truth which comes from the word of God. So many are lost and alone, feeling hopeless. If they only knew who God is and the wonderful things he could do in their lives. Amen sister!!!

      Thank you nobody for sharing your fear. It sounds like fear can humble us. Being humble is a gift from God edifing that we are not perfect and i understand imperfection. I live with it everyday. All things work together for the Glory of God. I am your friend and you never have to be perfect with me.....I truly love you brother. Be gentle and be kind to yourself and know that you are loved!
