Practice Pulling Down Strongholds

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds (2 Corinthians 10:4-6 NKJV).

The importance of high ground in battle is paramount. Soldiers take the high ground to force the enemy to attack from a subordinate position. Fighting from an elevated location gives you a definite advantage over your opponent. You have a full range field of vision, enabling you to track your opponent’s movements and cut him off quickly. Everyone knows that up-hill battles are exhausting and are usually lost.

If you belong to Jesus, you have an enemy. The devil steals from you. He takes pleasure in tormenting you and hindering your progress in the Lord. If he has a stronghold in your mind, you will give up and surrender to fear and shame. The devil defeats you through what you think of yourself and others. If you believe his propaganda, you will feel the Lord is holding out on you. Satan and his minions take the high ground when you allow him to override your thought life.
