WSTK-ITV - Breaking Down Strongholds Part 2 - Awe TV
Ok... Here's part 2 ... sometimes we just need the basics and be reminded. Hmmmm "the stronghold of judgement". God knows i've fallen victim to that one! I know i need to be reminded that my mind needs to be renewed ...... strongholds steal our hope and destroy our faith. I love the point where John Paul looks at the stronghold as an opportunity for strength building.. instead of the whiny "why me" points. I'm going to write out the his "Tips" here... (so i can re-read them too!)
#1) HOW WE THINK ABOUT OURSELVES TRUELY AFFECTS WHO WE ARE AND CAN KEEP US IN BONDAGE.
#2) STONGHOLDS SET THEMSELVES UP AGAINST GOD'S KNOWLEDGE OF US AND OPINION OF US SO WE WILL LOSE SIGHT OF WHO HE SAYS WE ARE.
#3) STRONGHOLDS WILL SUPPRESS YOUR FAITH AND WILL KEEP GOD FROM BEING ABLE TO ACT ON YOUR BEHALF.
#4) A TELLTALE SIGN OF A STRONGHOLD OPERATING IN YOUR LIFE IS A RECURRING "WHY ME?" MENTALITY.
#5) STRONGHOLDS NOT ONLY AFFECT YOUR OWN LIFE, BUT THEY CAN ALSO KEEP YOUR CHILDREN IN BONDAGE TO THE SAME THINGS.
