|Weapons In The War|
|2 Corinthians 10:1-5 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|A stronghold is something that has a hold of one that is strong. Addictions, fear, doubt and a lack of faith are all strongholds. Jesus can help you only if you let Him. Some say that we use Jesus as a crutch but the truth is, we should. We should depend on Him with anything and everything from the largest to the smallest things in life. Now we as humans do not have the ability to break a stronghold but we know the one that can.
The war against the strongholds are not and will not be the carnal objects. Most that want help want it instantly which they will turn to drugs, medication and alcohol. The carnal objects are temporary just covering up the strongholds. So how do we fight against the strongholds?
Eph 6:14-17 these items are spiritual items, they can't be physically seen.
If you want out of the stronghold then ask God to have it removed but you must be ready AND willing. If we believe that God can remove the strongholds then why are they still in our lives? Because we think we can fix it ourselves. One problem is that non-spiritual people are thinking they can be cured of their stronghold thru God. The unsaved can't speak spiritually because they do not have the spirit of God in them. Now if you're born again then you have a power within you that is able to remove the strongholds. The second problem is that the saved try to fix it with fleshly fixes. The saved should be praying for the strongholds to be removed from others lives. If you're one of the ones that try to fix the problems yourself then you'll walk around worrying yourself to a literal death.

|The Will of God|
|Romans 8:26-28 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Have you ever been in a place where you didn't know what to do?
Things that are known of the will of God, everything that's inside the Bible is His will. Gal 1:14; Jesus Christ gave Himself for our sins. It wasn't something that just happened. It's not Gods will that anyone should die lost. It's a personal choice when God calls that Salvation is excepted. 1 Thes; it's Gods will that we all to be holy. We should try to live sinless at all times. 1 Thes 5:13; we should also give thanks to God no matter what happens. Those are things that are known about Gods will. One must read and study Gods Word in order to know what His will is for our lives.
Just as we know what His will is, there are also things we don't know. Don't we beat ourselves up over doing the right things? Most all people don't want to do the wrong things. Now the devil likes to confuse and he can come to us and whisper to us and we are fooled into thinking it was God. This is why we are to try the spirits. Rom 8:26 is clear stating that we usually don't know what to do. Christ Himself wrestled with it in the garden making sure He was to follow thru with His sacrifice, His crucifixion. So how do we know we are doing the right thing, the Spirit of God dwells inside those that are saved and it makes intercession for those. This is the direct connection to doing the right things. Now if you've got sin in your heart then you're going to have a really hard time hearing and knowing what God says to you. This is because sin blocks out Gods communication because He can't help over the sin. Rom 8:27 this speaks about the shepherding of Jesus Christ searching out the heart and knowing the mind and whether it's truly yearning for God. If the mind of the spirit yearns for God then He makes intercession in our behalf to God His father. Rom 8:28 clearly states that ALL things work together for those that love God. The variable is that if we love the world or some of it then you're not 100% in love with God. That has always been the problem with us as humans. We should love Him more than anything else and if we do, nothing else will matter because it will ALL be taken care of.
This all sounds simple but the devil comes against us and causes us to doubt and fear. This happens because he wants to destroy us all. The little things are usually what we struggle with but put your focus on God and your relationship with Him.

|The Ram Is In The Thicket|
|1 Corinthians 10:13 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|The trials we go through are common but they seem personal when they affect our selves. But why do we go through them? First we need to understand temptation. Temptation is a test given from someone. We must ask ourselves if the test is from God or Satan. 1 Peter 1:1-9, at times it might feel as if the test is too hard. If it's a test of God then it's to grow you as a stronger Christian. In these test from God we can either pass or fail them. We can always run away and try to do it ourselves but when it's Gods test we can only run so far on our own. At times we like to blame the devil for tests that are of God. When God makes a promise He will keep it to the very end. God is always very purposeful in everything. Through tribulation we receive patience. The trial of your faith strips away the worldly trusts to point the focus all back upon God. He gives us our health, financial freedoms, etc. God will never test you with evil. The devil will test us with things that appeal to the lust of the flesh. God will not test you with another women to check your love for your wife. This means that for the most difficult battles you've went through God was behind them? Yes, because those are the toughest items to break through in your life. We usually don't have the answers to why He tests. We often don't have the answers as to when the test will begin or start. In the end, we will make it through because in the end the answer is because God brought me through.|

|Are You Waiting For An Answer?|
|James 1:5-7 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|God never said not to ask Him for anything. There are times when we don't understand things. God is not gonna say to you, that's a dumb question. God doesn't expect us to walk through life blinded. Go before God humbled and He will answer. They're times when we wont like the answer that's given. It's ok to question God but you better do it with honor and respect.|
