Key Verse from Sunday:
“Or again, how can anyone enter a strong man’s house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can plunder his house.” -Matthew 12:29, NIV
Last week we asked "why address the enemy's stronghold in your life?". This week we ask "how?"
It begins by coming to Jesus.
1. Tie Him Up (Matthew 16:19).
2. Stop Feeding Him.
3. We Don't Fight Him Alone.
i. God Fights For Us (Isaiah 49:25).
ii. Others Will Fight With Us (Ephesians 6:10-20).
This leads us to the word "Accountability".
A few cautions when opening up to others:
1. You shouldn't seek out someone who is currently struggling with the same thing as you (Matthew 7:3-5).
2. Be Patient (Galatians 6:1-5).
3. Pray for Help.
"You are stronger, sin is broken". Through Jesus, you can overcome your stronghold!

In what ways does it increase your success when you let someone else help "tie up the strong man"? Matthew 12:29.
