5.31.15 Break free of the strongholds in your life with God's help
Are you a Christian struggling with strongholds in your life? Don’t give up and don’t give in. There is hope for you. The price for your victory has already been paid. Jesus died for your hang-ups and guarantees your total victory in every area of your life. Is there any sin in your life that you have not repented ? Is there anyone that you have not forgiven? Is there any past involvement in the drugs, occult, witchcraft? Is there a history of generational curse in this area? What is the temptation? Do you really want to be free of the temptation in other words is there anything that you are still trying to hold on? Jesus paid it all. Satan has no right, no authority to anything that concern you. Jesus has set you free to walk in liberty. Learn what weapons are included in your arsenal and how to use them.
Weapons: word of God, Blood of Jesus, armour of God, name of Jesus, power of binding and loosing, prayer and fasting. now faith and confession of your mouth, praise and worship, ministering and warring angels.
Identify the enemy. Lust, habits i.e. Drugs, alcohol, lying, manipulatin, sexual appetite, thought life, unholy desires, jealousy, rebellion, and resentment. It is no one business but yours. Be careful when coming into agreement with someone to pray with you. Yes, the word says confess your faults to one another but you do not need to share every detail. People tend to have long memories of faults of others. Some may not be strong enough to handle the information you would share.
Check your armour. Are you walking in sanctification? You cannot be back and forth, in and out of God. Remember you cannot give Satan any legal ground. Apply the Blood of Jesus to your mind, will, emotions and body daily and as often as needed.
THE ANSWER IS IN THE BIBLE. Search the word for the scripture that applies to your situation. IT IS IN THERE. Find as many scriptures that you can. Read, write and post them where you can see it. Confess them throughout the day as if you were taking natural medicine.
Surrender it to the father. Release it to him. You cannot overcome this by your own will or strength. It is through the power of the Holy Ghost. Pray, fast, call upon the name of Jesus, trust and stand on the word. For every area that you bind, you must loose something in its place i.e. bind up lust and loose purity, bind up appetite for drugs and loose appetite for the word of God. Do not forget to praise and worship God for giving you victory. Call upon the warring angels to assist you and the ministering angels to minister to your needs.

So what ever stronghold you have in your life remember read the verses above and stay focused on God. Satan will always try to come in between you and God but just say "Get thee behind me Satan". Satan never wants you to worship or do anything for God because when we do things for God then it means that Satan is losing the battle.
God I come to you tonight wanting to ask you to take whatever strongholds that I may be trying to hold onto away from me. I put them in your hands because you are Lord of my life. I love you Lord and I want to worship you with all I have and with all I am. Now God please be with my facebook friends and family and know I love you. I ask these things in Jesus Name Amen.
