Spring is coming in a few weeks. Almost, every household will go through that phase of spring cleaning!
Take out the winter clothes and put in the summer outfits! Change the curtains, decors, rugs, everything & anything that was the winter season. Dust, mop, rearranging furniture and opening the windows for fresh air is all part of this big mission we set every spring season. But, have you spring clean your home with the Holy Spirit?
But, have you spring clean your home with the Holy Spirit?
As the winter season is coming to end, the spring season rolls in with green grass, flower buds, and warmer weather. All households will set up their schedules for a weekend of spring cleaning. All of the cleaning products are out and music is blaring in the background. Working from top to bottom, the house looks as beautiful as it was when it was first purchased. You have physically cleaned it but, have you spiritually cleaned it?
Has your home gone through a rough patch during the past season?
Is your family not in a union as it used to be?
Or maybe you need to be reminded that God is in your home?
As I was doing my own spring cleaning, this little thought kept coming into my head and tugging at my heart. What good is it if the house is spotless from top to bottom, wall to wall, and yet it still doesn’t feel CLEAN!
So what I did next was something so divine and peaceful and I ask that you do the same thing!
Invite the Holy Spirit into your home.
Ask God to wipe away any bad energy in your home that has been trapped in those four walls. Go around the inside of your house and bless every room, wall, floor with holy oil. Don’t let the enemy continue to lurk around in your home. Re-declare your home to God!
In the book of Proverbs, it says
Every wise woman builds her house, but a foolish one tears it down with her own hands -Proverbs 14:1Every wise woman builds her house, but a foolish one tears it down with her own hands -Proverbs… Click To Tweet
Our home is the place where we keep our family safe. It’s where we raise them and teach them. It’s where family traditions are made and passed to the next generation. We all build up our home to the standards we had set them to be. If the enemy has been trying to destroy your peace in the home, do not be a fool to submit.
Instead, declare it all again to God! Let Him become the center of your home. Let Him send His Spirit to fully cleanse out your home. Pray for the things you want to happen to in your home and rebuke the things that need to get out of there.
God always wants to be in every part of our lives, not just in the church. He wants to be in your home. He wants your family to praise Him in your home. Overall, He wants to be the foundation of your home. So, why not spring clean with the Holy Spirit this time around. You’ll be blessed that you did.
But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord! – Joshua 24:15
Don’t let the enemy ruin another season in your household. Cleanse your home with the Holy Spirit and re-declare it to God. You will feel more at peace and will see a difference in your home when God is in control.
