From the Kitchen Table
Victorious Living Day 25
“When the unclean spirit has gone out of a person, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and finding none it says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when it comes, it finds the house swept and put in order. Then it goes and brings seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they enter and dwell there. And the last state of that person is worse than the first.” As he said these things, a woman in the crowd raised her voice and said to him, “Blessed is the womb that bore you, and the breasts at which you nursed!” But he said, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and keep it!” Luke 11:24-28
A house is blessed by what it is founded on and filled with. We can build our lives on the firm foundation of God’s word and then fill that house with what is foolish, finite and forgettable. Our enemy is counting on it. It’s hard to believe that a person will put so much into the house they build and then think so little of what he fills it with. A nice house becomes a nasty place when we fill it with ungodly thoughts, words, and treasures. But blessed to be a blessing is a house, a life, that is built on God’s word and filled with God’s word; the Bible says so.
