THIS IS THE BATTLE…to recognize evil schemes and not give Satan another moment of your life this side of Heaven!

“One of the things that surprised me when I first read the New Testament seriously was that it talked so much about a Dark Power in the universe—a mighty evil spirit who was held to be the Power behind death and disease, and sin…Christianity agrees with Dualism that this universe is at war. But it does not think this is a war between independent powers. It thinks it is a civil war, a rebellion, and that we are living in a part of the universe occupied by the rebel.” C. S. Lewis

#2—How do we Fight? KNOW YOUR OPPONENT!
A stronghold is an Old Testament concept of a fortress, a place that is difficult to penetrate, often because it’s elevated and can be strongly defended. Notice that Paul says we have spiritual weapons, such as prayer and God’s Word, which have divine power, able to destroy a stronghold, a faulty belief; something we’ve thought for so long, but Paul says we need to take every thought captive for Christ.

Our struggle with shame is the result of a hell-based narrative about us. The LIE is natural to feel, yet demonic in its origin. The LIE is personalized to your unique story and becomes entrenched into our thinking and feeling. #Heverisms #you’re not who you think you are.

“The story of your life is the story of the long and brutal assault on your heart by the one who knows what you could be and fears it.” John Eldredge

“The result of shame is distance and hiding from relationships. Shame robs us of our ability to be intimate with others.” From Shame to Beauty, p. 52

“She was courageous. Not because it came easy but because she chose to walk the tightrope from broken to brave, everyday.” Jamie O’Bryen, https://findinglifebeautiful.wordpress.com

Then Theodon said, “I will not risk open war.” Aragorn replied, “Open war is upon you, whether you would risk it or not!”
