Day 12 Most mental strongholds are rooted in selfish desires

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves. Philippians 2:3
God is not as concerned with every single idea that crosses our mind, as He is with the line of thoughts it follows. At any time, all of us have had wicked thoughts, but these don’t have to influence our lives. However, thought patterns become a constant way of thinking; that is why they have power, and this is where mental strongholds come from. The devil uses minds filled with selfish thoughts as the perfect spots to build strongholds of selfishness, and from there, control the individuals. That is why I insist we must die to ourselves, to the flesh and its desires, to live life in freedom. How can we stop selfishness from taking root in our lives? “Fight the good fight of faith.” (1 Tim. 6:12). This means we cannot allow our minds to be abandoned territories that are empty of the thoughts, truths and principles of God, where the enemy can build strongholds to cover himself

. Let us begin today to be good stewards of our minds and preserve integrity in our thoughts. In the name of Jesus, destroy every stronghold that has been built in your mind!
Let us pray
Dear Lord, I recognize that my sins separate me from You, but in this day I ask you for your forgiveness. I am repenting for offending You. I surrender my will and I start bringing down every stronghold in my mind and every pattern of thoughts that keep me from You. Forgive me Lord! Right now, by the power of Your name, of Your blood, and Your word, I bring down all strongholds and I allow the Holy Spirit to renew my mind. I receive the identity of son of God and declare that I’m a carrier of Your glory and Your supernatural power. Amen.
