After getting to understand who we’ve been created to be, it is time to function properly in the capacity we ought to. Against all odds.

Ephesians 2:10
[10] For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can DO the good things he planned for us long ago. (NLT)

Just the way there are obstacles on the pathway to success in life, so also are there forces (strongholds) that militate against us living the life of victory we’ve been called to.

Strongholds appear in divers forms but they can be easily recognized. This is because they keep weighing us down and stop us from advancing from a level of becoming to the other. They come in form of sin, negative or impure thoughts, evil imaginations, low self-esteem, identity crisis. etc. Apostle Paul has this to say about how best we can pull down strongholds.

2 Corinthians 10:4
[4] For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds.

I hope this rings a chord deep down in your heart that our Father didn’t create us without making ample provision for all we need to live a life of victory. He armed each of us with weapons, not just tangible ones that can kill the body but mighty weapons for spiritual warfare. You know what this means? You are covered! Apostle Paul goes further to shed light on what we’re up against.

2 Corinthians 10:5
[5] 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.

God the Father gave us His Spirit and His Word! These are the mighty weapons of our warfare. So, whenever we find ourselves in tough circumstances and struggles that seem overwhelming, our go-to place should be the Word and the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is here to help us live a life of victory over sin! You can’t stand with arms folded allowing the enemy rob you of the life of dominion and victory you’ve been made to live! The creation awaits! Take charge of those strongholds and bring them to obey Christ.

Romans 8:19
[19] For [even the whole] creation (all nature) waits expectantly and longs earnestly for God’s sons to be made known [waits for the revealing, the disclosing of their sonship].
