Strongholds that hinder progress can arise in people's lives when they do not understand God's purpose. God wants his people free from all strongholds that hinder them. God made provision for his people's freedom from strongholds through the blood of Jesus, his word, and his Spirit. When you hear the voice of God you know what to speak and what to pray, making your efforts effective. Walking in the Spirit, knowing your spiritual weapons and letting Jesus reveal himself to you will bring down the strongholds.
