“Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the straps of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke?”
As Christians, we often forget that the devil can still have strongholds that need to be broken. To create an environment where the Holy Spirit can thrive, we need to master self-control. We need to tame our tongue, our eyes, and our minds in a way that will honor God. It’s definitely a struggle against the world, which seems to promote things that run counter to how God expects us to live. As we break these strongholds we will see our relationship with Christ and our affect on the world increase.
