For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds. (2 Corinthians 10:4)
What strongholds keep you form accomplishing God's will for your life (which is usually found in and through our godly desirers)? Strongholds can be physical, social, emotional, financial or any number of people, places or things? The weapons needed to defeat them, especially if they are people, are not to be found in the carnal realm. "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood." Prayer should always be our first defense; immediately followed by the power of God, which is the Word of God. Thirdly we are to seek wise godly counsel—not the counsel of the world, but the counsel of those who have given evidence of their faith and trust in God. Anger, malice and revenge are never successful weapons against strongholds, especially those devised by the father of lies. Nothing tears down strongholds and defeats the enemy faster than submitting to God and resisting the devil.
