Topic: WAR AGAINST GENERATIONAL STRONGHOLDS
Text: 2 Corinthians 10:4
📖4….(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of STRONG HOLDS;)”
🔥A stronghold is a major area of predominance by the devil over a community, family, household or individual. This is the weak point through which the enemy defeats his victim. It could be a type of terminal disease, behavioural tendencies, or a destructive addiction. Generational stronghold is a pattern of life of struggling in suffering and sorrow that runs through the family line. It is transferred from generation to generation. Only the power of the gospel can dispel and break such strongholds.
🔥🔥As good things are inherited in a family, so are bad things. There are strongholds of pride, cultural imprisonment, religious incarceration, and tribal quagmire. There are strongholds of family ties with premature death. It becomes generational if it repeatedly cuts short family members’ lives in their prime.
🔥🔥🔥Abraham suffered from barrenness for a long time before God called him. Even though he managed to have Isaac by his unwavering faith, Isaac suffered same fate for twenty years after marriage. It was after serious prayers that he had Jacob and Esau…Gen 25:20-26. After Jacob used trick to have 12 sons, different forms of strongholds began to manifest in their lineage. Reuben slept with his father’s wife, Simeon and Levi killed Dinah’s husband and had bad temper transferred to Moses, while Judah slept with his son’s wife, Tamar…Gen 38:12-18. This catalogue of woes and generational depravities can be overcome if we walk by faith, apply the weapons of our warfare, cast down imaginations and bring into captivity every evil thought to the obedience of Christ.
🙏My father my father, I declare war against every patterned disease, death, and poverty running in my family, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Oh Lord, deliver me from the marriage failures and breakages, ravaging the world, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Heavenly father, hide me from the power of generational strongholds dominating my family, in Jesus’ name.
THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
2 Chronicles 11-15.
I AM JUSTIFIED BY FAITH!
