3 Ways to Bring God into Your Home
Many of us pray for God’s protection, presence, and providence over our lives, but we make no deliberate effort to bring him into our homes. Some of us are afraid of what others will say, so we allow worldly trends and habits to fill our homes instead. However, since we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but principalities, powers, and spiritual wickedness in high places, even now more than we ever, we need the presence of God in our homes. Join me as we explore three of the surest ways to bring God into your home:
Daily Devotion and Worship
God loves to commune with us, and one of the best ways to do this is through a consistent devotion and prayer life. Each day, as a family or as an individual, we should make time to invite God’s presence into our home. Explore the life-giving words of the Scriptures, worship him through songs and express all your wants and needs through prayer. Share testimonies of God’s goodness and bask in his presence. Incorporate everyone in your household in this beautiful experience, which will set the tone and the atmosphere for your home.
Christian Wall Hanging
It is said that repetition deepens impression, and hanging Christian wall art from Christian Walls is one of the best ways to deepen the impression of God’s word on your heart. Choose Christian wall arts with your favorite scriptures and hang them at strategic places in your home. Can you imagine the impact of seeing God’s promises every time you enter your living room? In time you will find yourself living in the reality of promises such as “Fear not for I am with you. Be not dismayed for I am your God…” (Isaiah 41:10) or “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19) Christian wall arts also serve as great conversation starters, and as your guests come and go, they too will feel the presence of God in your home.
Attitude of Gratitude
A spirit of gratitude gives off a sweet-smelling incense that will bring God into your home and near to your family. An attitude of gratitude is active and will show in your choice of music, words, and actions. Avoid complaining and whining; instead, practice praising and praying. Be deliberate about thanking God for his daily blessings. Correct your children when they complain and help them to see the goodness of God even in challenging times. Use a gratitude jar or a journal to regularly record those things for which you are grateful. God will be pleased, and he will delight in showering your home with even more blessings.
Having God in your home is a win-win situation. As you pray and invite his presence and protection, use the easy tips above to deliberately bring God into your home. All those who passed through your home will be blessed.
