2 Corinthians 10:4 -- For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.
A stronghold is a satanic force that starts as a thought, then lays its foundation in a person's mind, builds itself up and makes its abode there.
You can't simply cast down a stronghold as you would cast down an evil thought or imagination. You need the word of God to become like a hammer in your life in order to tear down that stronghold and get it out of your system.
Hebrews 4:12 -- For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword.........
