EXTREME HOME MAKEOVER

 
"The curse of the Lord is on the house of the wicked, but the dwelling of the just He blesses." —Proverbs 3:33
 

The Lord wants your house to be blessed and to be a blessing. If you have never had your pastor bless your house, ask him to do so immediately. The first thing Jesus told the apostles to do upon entering a house was to bless it (Mt 10:12). If your home is deserving, the blessing will descend upon it (Mt 10:13).

To make your home "deserving," make it a house of prayer (Is 56:7), dethrone the TV set, and remove any objects, articles, and reading material which do not give glory to God. If you make your home "deserving," the blessing will remain.

Now you will see conversions in your house. It will not be uncommon for people to repent of sin and give their lives to Jesus right in your living room. Healings, signs, and wonders will accompany the word as it is put on the lampstand of your home (Mk 16:20; Lk 8:16). Many will receive the Holy Spirit while visiting your home. Even demons will flee as they encounter God's holy presence in your home. Your blessed home will become an outpost and a base for the invasion of this world by Jesus' kingdom of light.

 
Prayer: Father, bless my home, marriage, family, and self. We are Yours.
Promise: "Refuse no one the good on which he has a claim when it is in your power to do it for him. Say not to your neighbor, 'Go and come again, tomorrow I will give,' when you can give at once." —Prv 3:27-28
Praise: Even though John's house was damaged by fire, God blessed him by having his house be repaired to be in even better shape than before.
