Home-wreckers & Nation-wreckers
Jesus tells us that a house divided cannot stand. The same is true for a nation that is divided. It’s time we kick Satan out and stand united in Christ. James wrote: “For where envy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every kind of evil.” (James 3:16) Envy, pride, anger, bitterness, jealously, selfishness, dishonesty…they all have something in common. They are home-wreckers. The are also the things that divide and wreck a nation – and we are seeing them all in America today.
The more internal divisions and strife there is in a home or nation, the quicker and harder it will fall. Since homes and nations are made up of sinful and willful, selfish human beings, having a home or nation that is united and strong can be a very daunting task. Satan would love nothing more than to see a Christian home fall to ruins and he works hard every day trying to make that happen. He has been at work for generations to divide this nation, too. When you crack the door open just a small amount, Satan will squeeze his way in and take up residence.
Guarding our homes and nation
We need to guard our homes, our marriages, and our nation. We do that through complete and total surrender to God, as he molds us into His character and image. When we are surrendered to Him, then we are on the same team, working to achieve the same goals rather than seeking our own selfish best interests. As we become more like Him, we will take on His nature and character and display it in the world around us. It’s way past time that we kick Satan out on the curb and give Christ the place of honor and make Him Lord in our homes, marriages, and family.
Make no room for Satan
I love the scene in Kendrick Brother’s movie, War Room, where Priscilla Shirer tells the devil to leave her family alone. How would our homes, marriages and children be different if we stood up to Satan by kneeling in prayer and surrendering everything to God, giving Him first place – the place of honor in our homes. It’s time we place our homes under new management – with Christ. Watch this powerful scene below and let’s kick Satan out of our homes, families, marriages, and nation together.
