Stronghold Savvy(2) -- Bobbie Houston
Bobbie Houston continued with her series on Stronghold Savvy at Hillsong women this morning. Her main focus today is about maintaining and managing the strongholds.
To me, it's like maintaining a garden. There're flowers that you laboured to plant in, and there're weeds that are uninvited. The flowers and the weeds can represent the two kinds of strongholds. With the flowers we need to continue to labour, to water, to fertilize, to nurture, to strengthen, and they're for us to enjoy. With the weeds we need to recognise them, and continue to labour to get rid of them. It's not a sin that they keep appearing, but if we let them grow wild without any restriction, they can soon become a big problem and overtaking the flowers.
Then Bobbie Houston mentioned a few strongholds that are significant and needs more attention. One is about honoring the parents. The other one she spent quite a bit of effort on is the church. An interesting verse that she mentioned is Genesis 28:17, about Jacob's dream of the stairway, where the angels of God ascending and descending, the verse 17 says,"How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God; this is the gate of heaven." So the church is a place where there're ladders, on which the angels going up and down. That's quite an amazing discription of church.
