2 Corinthians 10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds;)

As much as we’d like it if things changed automatically, they don’t. For things to change for the better in our lives requires the correct response to God’s Word. God’s Word says we’re blessed, healed, and prosperous, but everyday the enemy attacks and attempts to steal every promise from God.

A stronghold is an attack from the enemy on the things that rightfully belong to us. The pulling down of strongholds is our responsibility to retain what God’s Word says we already have. So, the responsibility we have when the enemy attacks our bodies with sickness is an unwavering belief that we’re healed and a confession saying the same (James 1:6-7; 2 Cor. 4:13). A correct response to a stronghold in our marriage is the belief that our marriage is prosperous (in spite of what we see) and a confession saying the same.

Don’t believe or speak what you’re seeing if there’s a stronghold in your life. Pull down that stronghold by continuously believing and confessing God’s Word over everything else.
