2 Corinthians 10:4 - "The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to tear down strongholds."
Wherever a stronghold exists, it is a demonically induced pattern of thinking. Specifically, it is a "house made of thoughts" which has become a dwelling place for satanic activity.
The strongholds upon which demons rely consist of our own thoughts, attitudes, and opinions which are in agreement with evil.
The strongholds that affect us most are those which are so hidden in our thinking patterns that we do not recognize them or identify them as evil.
Matthew 12:37 - "For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned."
Today!.... I make up my mind that I'm going to speak life to my situation and circumstances. I am going to the word of God to find out what He has to say about me and my situation, and I'm going to say what He says.
Today!... I curse the wrong words I've spoken over my life and begin to speak the words of life I'm supposed to speak.
Proverbs 6:2 - "You are snared (trapped) with the words of your lips, you are caught by the speech of your mouth."
Proverbs 18:21 - "Death and life are in the power of the tongue."
