The Battlefield

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 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 (2 Cor. 10:3-5)

Where is your war? 

Maybe you aren’t battling anything today. Congratulations! Enjoy! Bask in it with thankfulness, but don’t let down your guard.

I’m not at liberty to share the details of the battle waging in my life this week, but there is one. Yet, as I prayed this morning, I believe God led me straight to this passage and to the word stronghold.

Strongholds are anything that keeps us or the people we love from God.

Strongholds are sneaky. They appear harmless. They are found in our thoughts.

Some are big. Some are small, but no matter the size, they have the same end. They “argue against God.” They become gods in our lives. They run our lives.

If we think we can’t be satisfied or live without something it has become a stronghold.

Not the most uplifting and encouraging message this morning, but it is important.

I’m putting my armor on today. It might get messy, but the verse above promises victory. I’m waging war with the love and promises of Christ.

Much love and peace,
andy
