Start a New Sound

“The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.” -2 Corinthians 10:4

THINK

Has anyone ever told you something negative in your past that has stuck with you? Maybe even to this day. “You’re stupid,” or “you’ll never make it.”

In the scripture above, the word “stronghold” comes from a Greek word meaning “echo.” A stronghold is an echo. And that negative phrase that was spoken to you at a young age that you began to believe, is still echoing today … “You’re stupid. You’re stupid. You’re stupid.”

How do you stop an echo? Start a new sound. A new sound will stop the old sound. When you speak God’s word, sing songs that are filled with his truth - you are starting a sound, a new echo.

PRAY

Ask God to help you identify the negative echoes in your life. Pray for the courage to believe what God says about you.

ACT

Start speaking life and truth now. In Psalm 139, God says you are fearfully and wonderfully made. Read this passage and begin to speak this truth today.
