I knew I had a stronghold issue by the negative behavior patterns that would control my reactions to situations. Mental strongholds are unknown to our conscious mind until we seek God to reveal them. In addition, mental strongholds often come in pairs to ensure we remain in bondage to our unhealthy beliefs and wrong thinking. Also, I learned that mental strongholds protect seats of authority, much like castle walls protect a ruler’s throne. The authority seat holds beliefs that rule our lives by controlling what we think, and thoughts dictate what we say, and do. Now imagine having many double-walled castles in your heart, and each one protects a seat of authority that rules your thoughts. Go to my website to learn more about each of the following stronghold combinations and how to destroy them.
–Authority seat of anxiety is protected by the strongholds of worry and fear.
–Authority seat of insecurity is protected by the strongholds of control and betrayal.
–Authority seat of disappointment is protected by the strongholds of apathy and rejection.
–Authority seat of insignificance is protected by the strongholds of rejection and misplaced approval.
–Authority seat of humiliation is protected by the strongholds of shame and sadness.
–Authority seat of impatience is protected by the strongholds of injustice and unfairness.
–Authority seat of anger is protected by the strongholds of pride and judgment.
–Authority seat of doubt is protected by the strongholds of rebellion and independence.
–Authority seat of deception (lying) is protected by the strongholds of protection and manipulation.
–Authority seat of oppression is protected by the strongholds of irresponsibility and infirmity.
–Authority seat of escapism is protected by the strongholds of loneliness and discontentment.
–Authority seat of desire is protected by the strongholds of pleasure and addictions.
Tearing down strongholds, especially addiction strongholds, requires that we can hear from God. To hear from God, we need to be in a right relationship with God. Please visit my website to learn more about how you can be right with God and to be free from the bondage of the above stronghold combinations.
