One of the first questions you should ask is what is a strong? Well, allow me to define it before I go into 5 strongholds that hinder a mindset change.

The type of stronghold I am referring to are “negative strongholds of the mind.” A stronghold of the mind is a flawed thinking pattern based on “lies and deception”, or wrong “suggestions” that goes against the knowledge of God. Deception is the main ingredient that the (devil) our adversary uses as his primary weapon, and is a building block for negative strongholds to form in the mind. In 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 KJV - it says…

3For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
4For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;
5Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
I verse-3 it states that we walk in the flesh (physical body), but in this case are physical bodies cannot help in this type of war, because the war is in the mind and can be pulled down with a mighty offensive weapon at our disposal, and that weapon is the Word of God which verse-4 presents. This is so important; we must truly obtain understanding and revelation of the written Word of God. You must transform your carnal mindset into a spiritual mindset. In verse-5 it clearly states that “casting down imaginations” which means to (to throw off or away: thoughts or images) that go against the knowledge of God. One must capture the (negative thoughts, negative images, wrong suggestions that the devil) attempts to plant into your mind. This is down by speaking positive faith-filled words or the written Word of God.
What are 5 Strongholds that can hinder a Mindset Change?
  1. Having a negative thought pattern or wrong thinking
  2. Allowing your mind to form the wrong type of images or having a wrong imagination. This includes… an incorrect image in your mind of who God is, and how He (God) sees us
  3. Having anger
  4. A mentality of poverty and lack
  5. Improper behavior
This is just a short list of various forms of strongholds (mindsets) that can hinder a mindset change. The truth dispels deceptions, lies, and the wrong type of fear. Jesus said that if you keep in His Word, which tears down strongholds, you will be free from the power of sin has over you - Read John 8:31-34 KJV. Christians and Non-Christians held in bondage due to strongholds are in danger of remain in bondage to strongholds unless address spiritually. You must remember that awareness is a key factor of this type of carnal mindset. You are where you are because of your mindset. The battle is truly in the mind, because the mind is the seat of your life!

This is great Mark. I thought God was giving me a job to do that no one else was doing and start a blog called - I felt so wierd. But now I see this being taught everywhere. Great job! I feel, sheepishly, like Elijah or Elisha who whined "I'm the only one Lord", but indeed we are many. I've got seven blogs now:)
