Who’s Your Stronghold?

The battle of Jericho, with the walls of the city coming down, is a great example of warfare led by the Spirit of God. We need to understand what the people understood at that time.

When the walls of Jericho came falling down, how was it done? The people of Israel were worshipping before the Lord for seven days. When Israel entered into the promised land, what did the people do? They brought the priests and the Levites with the ark of His presence to the front of the march. The presence of the Lord was their armor. They went forward in the presence of God, and the waters were shifted.

When Jehoshaphat did not know what to do, when he was besieged by the enemy all around him, he lifted his hand, and the Spirit of God fell upon the Israelites. The message to him was that he should not be dismayed by the great army that lay before him. “Thus says the Lord to you, ‘Do not fear, nor be dismayed because of this great army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s” (2 Chron. 20:15b, MEV).

God commanded the people to fight in His presence. As they followed God’s lead and continued to worship and march forward, the enemy was confused. Why? Because the glory of the Lord was their rear guard. Why? The glorious presence of God is the one that fights for you. It is not by might. Not by power. It is by His Spirit. By His presence. It is by the exaltation of the name that is above every name.

There is power in the name of Jesus. The Scripture says the Lord is our strong tower. “The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run into it and are safe” (Prov. 18:10).

Strongholds are broken in front of the true stronghold of your life, which is Christ. Did you know God wants to be your stronghold? God Himself wants to take residency in your thoughts. God wants to be the center of attention. God wants you to understand the reality that He is the stronghold, the strong tower for the righteous.
