Reoccurring destructive habits that ultimately lead to our demise are strongholds. Spiritual warfare’s main playing field is the mind, thoughts and imaginations (2 Corinthians 10:5). The Bible gives us a way to stand firm in battle by being clothed in the full armor of God. Here are ten ways to break spiritual blockades that have been holding you back, so you can start living free.
Know Your Opponent
Do you know who is against you. It’s not your bossy co-worker, it’s not the person spreading gossip about you and it’s not the person that stole your idea. It is the ancient enemy of humanity since the Garden of Eden, the devil. The Bible reminds us that our battle is not people-based, it’s spiritual. Identify your opponent, his strategies and tactics and be empowered through the Holy Spirit to thwart them.
Accept The Battle Is Won
Jesus said all power and authority is His, so if you’re in Christ – guess what – you’re on the winning side. Many believers are not walking in the power and authority that Christ died to give them. Let the revelation of His victory permeate your faith and cause you to operate from a winning stance.
Catch Up To Your Faith
Allow your faith to be demonstrated in your actions. Don’t just say you believe you are the righteousness of God through Christ and then when crisis hits you become frazzled. Let your life be faith-filled and live like you believe the words you read in your Bible. It’s not about memorization, it’s about revelation and transformation.
Speak & Think
Your words and thoughts are containers of power. They can carry in power from the Kingdom of God or the kingdom of darkness. You choose. This is one of your most powerful weapons against pulling down strongholds, because the Bible says out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks and also as a person thinks so they are. Change your thoughts, change your words and God’s power will change your life.
Claim What’s Yours
Read the book of Ephesians. This book shares the inheritance that God prepared for you and the rich blessings He intended for your life. It’s like a gift that has your name on it, but you haven’t even opened it yet. These gifts live in the spiritual realm where no man can touch. Spiritual warfare and strongholds are designed to keep you from accessing your heavenly rights and keep you spiritually bound.
Pray, Decree & Declare
Pray and seek God’s face. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide and direct your prayers. Use your words to declare, decree and establish the authority of God’s word in your life over negative spiritual influences. This means those negative thoughts, feelings of jealousy, envy or revenge. You need to reject them and insert God’s say on the matter instead.
Stand & Be Strong
Paul tells Christians, to be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Wow! Don’t go this alone, stand strong in the Lord and He will fight the battle for you. Walk in the spirit and not in your own natural ability. The Lord will fight for you, you need only to be still.
