STRENGTH FOR THE STORMS OF LIFE
The ark kept Noah and his family safe from the flood. But although they were safe, they had to go through the storm. We will never avoid going through the storms and tempests of this life. Consequently, we must learn how to navigate them. God shows the way through the example of Noah who built a strong home, a home that could withstand the biggest tempest that ever hit this earth.
Hebrews 11:7 says: “By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.”
Each one of us faces our different storms. We may face even bigger storms ahead. The most important thing we can do is continually strengthen our inner man, our marriage, and our home. Ask God to show you any leaks where the destroying enemy can enter.
Our physical home constantly needs repair. I am glad I married a “Mr. Fix-it” as I call my husband. However, more than physical wear and tear is spiritual wear and tear.
Constantly check what is going on in your home. What are your children watching on the electronics in your home? The enemy hates godly homes and he looks for openings in the walls where he can enter in. He looks for broken down walls.
Close all holes. Take authority over compromise, worldliness, and all evil. Plead for God’s protection. Cover your home with the precious blood of Jesus Christ. Make your home strong to resist the buffeting of the storms of life. Fill your children with God’s Word so they will be strong to face the storms. Become such a diligent watchwoman that you scare the devil!
Blessings to you today,
