Total Destruction

Have you ever been at a demolition derby?

Can’t say that I have. The closest I’ve come was as a teenager; I sometimes rode in bumper cars at the local amusement park. Riders took dead aim at all other cars in their sight. No cars were demolished but it’s a cinch that they had dings and dents. Another way of demolition comes to mind. Maybe you’ve seen an old house or skyscraper demolished.

Our house was demolished in Goodwater, Alabama after we moved to Louisiana.

Friends told us that the property was sold by the current owner to the factory directly across the street. The industry needed additional parking space. They solved their space problem when they made a deal for our old house and one next door. That one was removed through a control burn exercise by the town’s fire department.

Back to demolition…

It conveys the thought of total destruction.

“For though we live in the body, we do not wage war in an unspiritual way,since the weapons of our warfare are not worldly, but are powerful through God for the demolition of strongholds. We demolish arguments and every high-minded thing that is raised up against the knowledge of God, taking every thought captive to obey Christ (2 Corinthians 10:3-5 HCSB).”

We pray. With authority, we pray in the name of Jesus and with power of the Holy Spirit.

Prayer demolishes spiritual strongholds.

“Therefore, if the Son sets you free, you really will be free (John 8:36 HCSB).”
