What is a stronghold?


A spiritual stronghold is more than sin; it’s bondage. A stronghold in this context is a natural desire in us that Satan twists so that sin has control over us.

We often keep our spiritual strongholds secret. As a result, the enemy uses our stronghold and secrecy around it to invoke shame and fear from us.

Some are obvious such as an addiction, but some are not, such as materialism.

Our strongholds are sometimes masked as something good, so we may not even know what the enemy is using against us. It can be something you don’t trust the Most High (God) with or something you’re striving to fulfill within yourself.



THE MOST HIGH IS OUR STRONGHOLD THAT DESTROYS STRONGHOLDS


Psalms 9:9- 11

9 The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. 10 Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you. 11 Sing the praises of the LORD, enthroned in Zion; proclaim among the nations what he has done.
