This series is all about the power of breaking free from bondage. How often do you feel like something has such a stronghold on you? For me, it's never been something I think about. I always just chalked it up to be difficulties or hard times in my current life.
But once you agree to really focus on those certain things that are holding you down, you begin to understand only God can provide the freedom.
*Strongholds will always lead to isolation* Beware of people who want to hide your strength*
Seriously this statement has sent me into a tizzy numerous times. Because it's so true, yet I so badly want to ignore it. You let the one thing control your life. Control who you surround yourself with. When you surround yourself with people who encourage you to keep living within your bondage or tell you it's ok, everyone deals with that at some point...you are simply enabling your problem. God wants you to be FREE. He wants you to be surrounded by people who want to help you get free. They don't want you to hide it, they want you to DEAL with it.
I am so excited to see where this study takes me. I have many things that it's time I broke free from. It's time I ended the battle with them. Ended that relationship with all of the "stuff" that has me in a stronghold. It's going to be an incredible journey, a powerful battle. I encourage you to do a study.
