One reason Satan’s strongholds are so powerful is that they become entrenched. This happens when Satan can get you to buy into the lie that your situation is hopeless. His goal is to get you to believe that by nature you are a drug addict or a manipulator or a negative person, that you are controlled by fear or shame, that nothing will ever change, and so on.
Once you give in to and adopt this line of thinking, these fortresses become difficult to remove. Your behavior weakens even more since all of us act according to who we believe we are. The only solution is to tear down these fortresses by “taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.”
2 Corinthians 10:4-5 NKJV
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.
Reprogram your mind and release yourself from captivity. This is how you unleash your full potential and free yourself up to then help other to do the same. The solution is two fold but straightforward. First, identify Christ’s thoughts on a matter, and secondly, align your own thinking under the rule of His truth.
And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John 8:32 (NLT)
