Overcoming Anger

Anger is yet another stronghold that we need, with God’s help, to pull down. One dictionary defines anger this way: “A violent passion of the mind excited by a real or supposed injury; usually accompanied with a propensity to take vengeance, or to obtain satisfaction from the offending party.”[1] Don’t you think it’s interesting that […] Continue reading…

Overcoming Depression

In my last post I wrote about rejection, and depression, for many people, is just as serious a stronghold. Oftentimes rejection, either real or perceived, will lead to someone being depressed. Let me be clear, right up front, that I’m not writing about legitimate, chemical imbalances that people have and that cause them to be […] Continue reading…

Overcoming Rejection

Strongholds have the ability to literally imprison us and keep our mind captive to wrong thinking. As we’ve said in this recent series of posts, what we do with the thoughts we think determines who we are and what we do. When strongholds keep us captive, who we are and what we do is deeply […] Continue reading…

How Jesus Sets Us Free

In my last post I wrote about addictions and that Jesus can set us free. How Jesus sets us free is the doctrine of redemption. Redemption is the purchasing of a slave out of bondage into freedom. Jesus doesn’t pull us out of bondage and leave us there. He moves us further into a place […] Continue reading…

Freedom from Addiction

Addiction. Before I go too far into this Blog post let me say that what I’m writing about doesn’t comes personal experience. In my early years, I was surrounded by addiction. I grew up with it from the time I was twelve years old. Between my own life, my brother’s lives and all of our […] Continue reading…

Overcoming Guilt, Shame and Condemnation

Without question, a sinner’s identity is a before-Christ or before-conversion identity. Our new identity, after our conversion is that of a saint who sins, not a sinner who is sometimes a saint. Guilt, shame and condemnation (the sinner’s penalty) are before-conversion states of mind or feelings. They should have nothing to do with your walk […] Continue reading…

Living with the Wrong Identity

We’ve been looking at strongholds. We’ve defined a stronghold as a satanic lie, a generational mindset or a human wounding that you have listened to long enough, believed strongly enough, and owned deeply enough that it becomes part of your identity. It has fortified itself in you and dictates your thoughts, beliefs, actions and reactions. […] Continue reading…

The Stronghold of Unforgiveness

Over the next few Blog posts I’ll be tackling several personal strongholds that need to be broken if we’re going to win the mind wars and renew our thinking. I’m starting with unforgiveness because the effects of it are far reaching. Every other stronghold has a better chance of existing and becoming stronger when we […] Continue reading…

Conquering Personal Strongholds

I’ve been posting recently from our series on Winning the Mind Wars. My last few Blog articles have laid the framework so that there would be a clear understanding of what happens in our minds with our thoughts and the dangers we face if we don’t take every thought captive to God’s Word and way. […] Continue reading…

Overcoming a Stronghold

The prophet Isaiah gives us a clear picture of a stronghold and shows us how we can overcome them. In Isaiah 36 and 37 he recounts Assyria’s siege of Jerusalem in 701 BC, a crisis the prophet had been promising for years. In 701 BC King Hezekiah stopped paying tribute to Assyria and declared Judah’s […] Continue reading…
