Before demonic strongholds can be overcome, we should understand exactly what demonic strongholds are. The word stronghold appears only once in the New Testament (2 Corinthians 10:4), and the Greek...
A stronghold does not always appear harmful or dangerous. It can start as an innocent thought, a harmless suggestion. If you don't check it against the word of God it becomes an acceptable way of thinking (mindset), then it becomes a habit (character) which defines who you are (become). That is why we have 2 Corinthian 10: 4-5. The best weapon against demonic strongholds (which can just be a mindset or a bad habit) is always weighing every thought, decision, desire, against what God's word says. You have to cast down (discard) everything that does not lineup with God's word. Yes we cannot take on demonic forces in our strength, but we need knowledge of the word of God, Hosea 4:6, 1 cor 2:12, Colossians 1:13. God has already made available spiritual power Luke 10: 18-19 that can defeat demonic forces. You need to believe this, you need to confess this, and you need to make sure that your lifestyle does not give any opportunity for demonic forces to thrive in your life. You must ask God to fill you with his spirit to strengthen you inwardly. Spend time alone with God, so you can have fellowship with his spirit, as Jesus did frequently while on the earth. The greatest wisdom comes from the Holy Spirit, he will show you what to do, he is the spirit of might, revelation, grace and truth, you can't lose any battle with him helping you. Luke 14:15-17.
It is with strong will of the mind and faith of God can you then understand all about demonic or evil doings. We all know right from wrong. We are taught about doing the right thing from schools, parents, grandparents etc. The little voice that interups you out of the blue, is the voice of reason and usually the right way of doing it. You should listen. You should also know a relationship with God is necessary.
