Destroying The Strongholds

Strongholds, according to 2 Corinthians 10:5, oppose God’s way. It says, “Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.” Against versus obedience.

Deuteronomy 12:2 says, “You shall utterly destroy all the places where the nations which you shall dispossess served their gods, on the high mountains and on the hills and under every green tree.” The high places in our heart are for praise. Back to Psalm 149:6 which says, “Let the high praises of God be in their mouth…”

Psalm 145:1-3 says, “I will extol You, my God, O King; and I will bless Your name forever and ever. Every day I will bless You, and I will praise Your name forever and ever. Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and His greatness is unsearchable.”

Inner enemy strongholds block praise. They cause our mouth to speak from discouragement, defeat, and spiritual barrenness. Psalm 137:4 says, “How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a foreign land?”

The antidote to spiritual barrenness is to sing! Isaiah 54:1 says, “Sing, O barren. You who have not borne! Break forth into singing, and cry aloud…” Inner enemy strongholds have to be torn down through praise!

If you haven’t read Habakkuk 3 in a while, I encourage you to do so. There is a key for us in verse 13. It says of the Lord, “…You struck the head from the house of the wicked, by laying bare from foundation to neck.”
