Demon forces are always waiting to invade an empty house. Let’s keep our personal house filled daily with the Word of God and with the Holy Spirit.
Jesus explained it to his disciples like this. “When an evil spirit leaves a person, it goes into the desert, seeking rest but finding none. Then it says, ‘I will return to the person I came from.’ So it returns and finds its former home empty, swept, and in order. Then the spirit finds seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they all enter the person and live there. And so that person is worse off than before. That will be the experience of this evil generation.” (Mathew 12:43-45)
My friend Don Finto gives us this sound advice. “If I am not a worshiping man, then anxiety, fear and depression push into me. If I am not a man of prayer, I begin to be king of my own life. If I am not listening carefully for the voice and promptings of the Holy Spirit, my own voice and the voice of the enemy will control me. If the Word of God is not my daily diet, I cannot know the nature of God and will begin to shape Him in my own image. Demon forces are waiting to invade an empty house.”
Our God has created us to be in union with Him…to stay filled with Him each day. Beware of an empty house.
Pray with me today, “Lord, I receive grace from you today to worship, to pray, and I purpose in my heart to listen to your voice minute by minute and to obey you, in Jesus name.”
