‘The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.’ – 2 Corinthians 10:4
So what were the weapons that began breaking down the strongholds in my life? The Bible, the Word of God, the Book of Truth, the Lamp to our Feet, the Sword of the Spirit…the words of our Creator encourage us, teach us, convict us, lead us, protect us, and fight for us. Each time Jesus was tempted by the devil in the desert, Jesus responded with “As it is written…” and quoted Old Testament scripture. This not only supports the Bible as God’s Word, but also teaches us how to fight the enemy. As the Bible tells us elsewhere, Satan is the father of lies. So, we must fight with the truth, with unceasing prayer, with continuous awareness of the presence of God and focus on His eternal kingdom. The enemy will do everything to destroy and devour us. He may even succeed physically. But nothing and no one can destroy a soul with joy and peace in the LORD Jesus Christ, our Living Water! God did not give you a spirit of fear, but one of power, love, and self-discipline. The Bible…it’s what’s for breakfast, lunch, and dinner…it’s what’s forever! Read it, use it, love it.
