Stronghold are fortresses constructed in our mind from which we can be ruled or controlled inappropriately.
Strongholds are negative, destructive thought patterns tattooed on the mind, by way of experience, teachings, habits, etc.  If allowed to develop, they can imprison a person for life!
satan and his demons are master designers when it comes to strongholds.  They're the premier architests, builders, contractors, and realtors all in one.  As the father of lies, satan's method is to use DECEPTION.  he takes the thoughts and feelings we received into our subconscious, infuses the information with his interpretations and skillfully forms them into belief systems.  In other words...he tatoos them in our minds.
Whew! (Help Us Jesus To See Truth - Not Facts)
What happens to us (the facts and events) is not really what creates a stronghold, what we believe about what happens to us creates a stronghold.
Your perception must remain Christ-like, NOT "Fact-like".  Seeing through His eyes about every situation will completely free you.  Only holding on to the thoughts that are pure, honest and of GOOD Report.  Only through these thoughts will God be allowed to minister to you.  A God-centered mind is important.  Bring all thoughts captive to the obedience of Christ and
WATCH HIM... Change things for you!!!

Quiet Confidence

Can I do that???!!!
Can I have confidence and be quiet?
Or can I be quiet with confidence?
Isaiah 30:15 says..."Only in returning to Me and Waiting for Me will you be saved.  In Quietness and Confidence is your strength".  Then my devotional said "Understanding will fail you, while Trust will keep you close" 

Hallelujah!!!  I hear You Jesus!
I will learn to be Quiet (Humble) and
Confident (Trusting) knowing that all the while,
I'm Drawing Nearer to You.
What a God, What a God, What A Loving God We Serve.
Jesus...I LOVE YOU!

Familiar With Poverty? I was!

I was sitting in church last Saturday, and the Lord began to speak to me about my finances. He told me to claim and hold on to what He has promised and given me.

He said "Don't be so quick to be broke. You have become familiar with the spirit of lack and don't know what the spirit of plenty feels like. Introduce yourself to Me in this area and walk in it. Walk upright in Me. I've called you to be a Blessing."

This has caused me to change my lifestyle in spending. I am unfamiliarizing myself with low bank account balances and familiarizing myself with accounts that can bless His people as He sees fit!


Bishop Tudor Bismark

This blessed my socks, my sandals off!
Quotes written by Bishop Tudor Bismark in "The Anointing of a Thousand Times More":
"We need to understand that sometimes our perception is a result of the enemy's deception."

"We need to know that what looks like dirt or desert is the abundant oil wells of our future! If you are in a dry and barren city, just wait on Him...there is water flowing under your feet!!!"

"As with the widow's oil, the anointing will infuse what we have, our abilities, our gifts, our talents, and our finances and turn them into a lifetime of provision."

Angels! Now Who Is satan...Really?

Why do we lessen the importance of angels when Lucifer himself is one, an angel? We put sooooo much emphasis on him and demonic forces and their ability on earth, but give no power to God's angels and their ability with the power of God Almighty and His sovereignty who directly directs them! We put God's angels on clouds with harps and fat little faces with nothing to do, when we give the entire principality of earth and it's heavenlies to satan (an angel) and his imps / demons (sub servant angels). Here again, we give more to the bad and none to the good. As the bad child always gets the attention, when the good child lays in the cracks and gets what they can politely. No More for me... I know the benefits of my God! God's angels are awesome and powerful, they withstood the test of Lucifer, who took only 1/3 of the weak ones, and they chose not to fall but remain with the Creator. They remain in the presence of the Almighty and have the ability and strength to carry through any assignment! No longer will I fret this wicked angel I have given so much power and attention to in my life. I will release my faith and destiny to my God. I will trust His ability to carry out my life's assignment, with the use of His most powerful and faithful Angels!!! God's angels know how to stand satan's (Lucifer's) test...They've Done It Before! They still have their God-given assignments, Lucifer is the one who was fired! Go Angels of God... Gooo!!! I See You At Work!!!

"Only What You Do For Christ Will Last???"

Bruce Miline writes, "Every kingdom work, whether publicly performed or privately endeavoured, partakes of the kingdom's imperishable character. Every honest intention, every stumbling word of witness, every resistance of temptation, every motion of repentance, every gesture of concern, every routine engagement, every motion of worship, every struggle towards obedience, every mumbled prayer, everything, literally, which flows out of our faith-relationship with the Ever-Living One, will find its place in the ever-living heavenly order which will dawn at His coming"

Wow... So it is Only what you do for Christ will last... literally!
(Keep Me Holy Jesus!...Whew!!!)

Angie's Daily Prayer by Capps - Powerful!

Father, in the Name of Jesus, I repent of my ignorance of the Word of God. I ask you to forgive me of the foolish things I've prayed.

In Jesus' Name, I bind every word that has released the devil or drawn his weapons toward me. I bind every hindering force that I've ever given strength to by the words of my mouth. I break the power of those spiritual forces, in Jesus' Name.

Father, In the Name of Jesus, I ask you to guide me in wisdom and understanding through the scriptural methods to set in motion all that's good, pure, perfect, lovely, and of good report.

I covenant with You to pray accurately. I will keep my mouth. I will speak only that which glorifies God. I will let no corrupt communication proceed out of my mouth, but that which is good to edify and minister grace to the hearer. I will not grieve the Holy Spirit of God whereby I'm sealed to the day of redemption, but I will give glory and honor and praise to the Lord Jesus Christ for all that shall be done.

Thank You, Father, that I am the Body of Christ. The enemy has no power over me.

I proclaim that all that is good, all that is blessed of God, all that is in the perfect will of God, all that God has designed for me shall come to me in Jesus' Name.

All of the evil and the bad reports, all that the enemy has designed to deceive me, to lead me astray, to destroy me, my home, or my finances shall be stopped with the Name of Jesus and the words of my mouth.

I'm blessed in the city and blessed in the field. I'm blessed in the baskets and blessed in the store. I'm blessed coming in; I'm blessed going out. I'm the head and not the tail. I'm above and not beneath. I'm blessed of Almighty God, strengthened with all might according to Your glorious power.

The Greater One is in me; He puts me over in life. The Spirit of Truth is in me; He gives me divine wisdom, divine direction, divine understanding of every situation and every circumstance of life. I have the wisdom of God.

I thank you Father, that I'm led by the Spirit of God. I am at the right place at the right time. My steps are ordered of the Lord. I have the mind of Christ and the wisdom of God is within me. In Jesus' Name. Amen!
