Strongholds of the Mind

“We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do. We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 NLT

Do you sometimes feel like there is a battle in your mind?  Is it a stronghold?

Pride keeps you and I from truly knowing God. Rebellious thoughts are like roadblocks to walking closely with God. These strongholds of the mind set up a prison of selfishness that prevent us from seeing clearly. The most direct route to freedom is to knock down these strongholds with the truth of God’s word. We combat pride with humility. We knock down selfishness with servanthood. We pull down greed with generosity. Actively choose to think the way that God thinks and you will be truly free.
