Destroying Strongholds

Our theme for October is Destroying Strongholds in our life through understanding who we are in Christ.

 Paul, writing to the church at Corinth, realized that they had engrained habits and life styles which were hindering their spiritual growth. He called them strongholds. In 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 he writes, “The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”

Our devotions this month focus on destroying strongholds in our lives by using the tools God has given us in his word and through the working of Holy Spirit in us. Each week we will look at another aspect of destroying strongholds.

  • Ø Week One: We are Identifying the need to destroy these strongholds, which are actually arguments against what God has already declared true.
  • Ø Week Two: We are given a blueprint for change by affirming who we are in Christ.
  • Ø Week Three: We are looking at some of the tools we will be using to destroy these arguments which stand against the knowledge of God.
  • Ø Week Four: We are affirming who we are in Christ
  • Ø Wrap Up: More affirmations of who we are in Christ

Our hope is that you will use this month of devotions to deal with some of the issues in your life which have been affecting your spiritual growth and walk with the Lord. I encourage you to practice reciting these passages of affirmation on a regular basis to reinforce your faith.
