It’s open, come on in.
Whose there, you ask?
My house is open, so they walk right in.
Unknowingly, I invited them.
Through believing lies in my head.
Honestly, I thought they’d leave.
But they don’t want to leave.
In fact they refuse to leave without me demanding them via God’s power.
Why don’t I ask them to leave?
Why haven’t I?
Because I’m comfortable with them.
The bondage feels familiar.
It’s who I am.
They came into my house so long ago, I can hardly remember feeling freedom.
My house guests have not only stayed a long time, they have completely moved in.
In fact, I even built them rooms.
I made room by kicking out peace, love, and security.
Has God come by lately?
Well, I haven’t invited Him over for a bit.
It’s been awhile and my house is slightly messy.
Messy with fear, doubt, and jealousy.
I’m afraid to clean up.
I don’t think I can.
But I’m jealous of my friend’s clean house…..she has so much peace from God.
I want that, too.
Does this sound at all familiar?
Declare God’s truth and pray this prayer:
God, please come back into my life.
Cleanse me from anything that is not of You.
Fear, doubt, and jealousy, leave now, in Jesus’ name.
I declare my house to be a house of God.
Now walk confidently in God’s power.
And close the door to fear.
In fact, change the locks.
Because God is back in control.
