As you walk through your day today, keep your eyes and ears fully open. Hints of heaven are all around you!
“For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds”
From the time you were a little girl until now, the devil has been diligently working at building strongholds in your mind.
Every time you experienced hurt or pain, he sought to build a new structure.
Whenever someone betrayed you, he told you that you would never trust anyone ever again.
Whenever someone abused you, he told you that you were not worthy of love.
With every lie you received as true, he established a new stronghold in your mind.
If given enough time, Satan will create an entire network of strongholds that completely distorts your view of everything around you.
A stronghold affects how you view God, how you view yourself, and how you view others.
He personally carried our sins in His body on the cross [willingly offering Himself on it, as on an altar of sacrifice], so that we might die to sin [becoming immune from the penalty and power of sin] and live for righteousness; for by His wounds you [who believe] have been healed.
Who can find you?
“Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies” -Proverbs 31:10
As you trust Me more and more, you are able to receive Me and My blessings abundantly. Be still, and know that I am God.
