TOPIC: God Is Coming To Your Home (2)
“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.” – (Psalms 16:11)
READ: 1 Chronicles 13:12-14 (KJV)
12. And David was afraid of God that day, saying, How shall I bring the ark of God home to me?
13. So David brought not the ark home to himself to the city of David, but carried it aside into the house of Obededom the Gittite.
14. And the ark of God remained with the family of Obededom in his house three months. And the LORD blessed the house of Obededom, and all that he had.
Obededom must have been afraid when King David said he was bringing the ark of the covenant to his house. God had just struck someone dead for touching the ark, and now, the same vessel was headed for his home where he lived with his wife and children. What he did not realise though, is that when God comes into the home of the righteous, He does so with many goodies. Today, He is coming, so, many goodies are coming too.
“The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the Lord of hosts.” – Haggai 2:8
His coming means the arrival of wealth. The cattle upon a thousand hills belong to Him (Psalms 50:10), as well as the gold and the silver. Therefore, once He steps into your home, poverty is banished! I decree: as you welcome God into your home, poverty is banished in the mighty name of Jesus.
God’s coming will bring divine healing. The Balm in Gilead can heal sicknesses (Jeremiah 8:22). If He is in your home, He will be the Balm. Place your hand on your chest and say “Jehovah is the Balm in put your surname house” and so shall it be in the mighty name of Jesus.
God’s arrival will bring fulfilment of destiny. Since God lives in Heaven, if He decides to come to your home, then there will be an access road between it and Heaven. Like Jacob saw in Bethel (Genesis 28:12-15), his life had been on one spot, serving his uncle for more than fourteen years. Things changed the day he dwelt in a place with a door between Heaven and earth. As God visits your home this season, He will put you on the right path towards the fulfilment of your destiny in the mighty name of Jesus.
God’s coming means the Lord of hosts is coming. Just by rising from His throne, all your enemies will be scattered (Psalms 68:1). Once He enters, demons will be roasted. His coming means anointing is coming to break yokes – ancestral or not. As He comes in today, every such yoke is broken in the mighty name of Jesus.
Father, please come into my home today and dwell with me.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
HYMN 14 – IMMORTAL, INVISIBLE, GOD ONLY WISE
1. Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
In light inaccessible hid from our eyes
Most blessed, most glorious, the Ancient of days,
Almighty, victorious, Thy great name we praise.
2. Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,
Nor wanting, nor wasting, thou rulest in might!
Thy justice like mountains high soaring above,
Thy cloud which are fountains of goodness and love.
3. To all life thou givest to both great and small;
In all life Thou livest, the true life of all;
We blossom and flourish as leaves on the tree,
And wither and perish-but nought changeth Thee.
4. Great Father of Glory, pure Father of Light,
Thine angels adore Thee, all veiling their sight;
All laud we would render; O help us to see;
‘Tis only the splendour of light hideth Thee.
