    As a counsellor I see the power of strongholds sometimes called a home for thoughts in our heads as the greatest problem people face. At some point in their lives they have believed a lie or several lies. These lies must be replaced with the truth of God that we may be free indeed. Satan as the Father of all lies will allways use that weapon. Our greatest weapon is truth.
  • This verse is very true. We have to be aware of out thoughts always. The devil is always waiting for his prey. Let us offer our thoughts to GOD
