100 – Strongholds

A young woman had been struggling with addiction for years, and she felt like she was at her wit’s end. She had tried everything she could think of to break free from her addiction, but nothing had worked. She was starting to lose hope.

One day, she decided to go to church. The pastor said, “I will give you my power to destroy spiritual strongholds.” Those words struck a chord with her, and she knew that she had to find out more.

After church, she went up to the pastor and asked him what he meant by those words. The pastor explained that spiritual strongholds are anything that keeps us from living a life that is pleasing to God. He said that addiction is a spiritual stronghold, and that it can only be broken through the power of Jesus Christ.

The young woman was encouraged by the pastor’s words, and she decided to give her life to Jesus Christ. She prayed and asked Jesus to forgive her sins and to give her the power to overcome her addiction.

The next day, the young woman woke up feeling different. She felt a new sense of peace and hope. She knew that she had been given the power to overcome her addiction, and she was determined to use that power to live a life that was pleasing to God.

The young woman went on to get help for her addiction, and she was able to break free from its grip. She is now living a life that is full of joy and peace, and she is a testimony to the power of Jesus Christ to overcome spiritual strongholds.

If you are struggling with addiction or any other spiritual stronghold, I encourage you to reach out to someone who can help you. There is hope, and you don’t have to go through this alone.

“I will give you My power to destroy spiritual strongholds.”

2 Corinthians 7:3-5
