Pulling down the stronghold of fear
One of the things we soon discover after coming into the Kingdom of God is that we are engaged in a spiritual war whilst we live on earth. We have an enemy who is constantly trying to reclaim ruler ship over our lives and render us ineffective for God by setting up strongholds in our lives through which he can maintain control over our lives. In this section of the series ‘Pulling down strongholds’ we look at the stronghold of ‘Fear’ and how it can be defeated and demolished through the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord and Saviour.
2 Cor 10:3-5
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 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.
2 Tim 1:7-9
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God, who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began.
