The Stronghold of Self: It’s All His

  • For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. (2 Corinthians 10:3-5)


  • The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it.
        The world and all its people belong to him. (Psalm 24:1)


  • Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power
        and the glory and the majesty and the splendor,
        for everything in heaven and earth is yours.
    Yours, Lord, is the kingdom;
        you are exalted as head over all.
    Wealth and honor come from you;
        you are the ruler of all things. (1 Chronicles 29:11-12)
