Yesterday, we discussed the things that you can do to bring God’s peace and presence into your home.

I believe if you do these things consistently, your home will become a place where God abides, not just visits. I also believe if you pray enough in your home and worship enough in your home that your home will become a portal into the spirit realm, just as many places of visitation have in times past. You simply can’t out give God, if you give Him your home, your time and your presence consistently, He will visit you and make His abode with you, and you can be sure of that.
I don’t know if you have ever noticed it, but there are places, places that are prayed in often or worshipped in often, that begin to manifest the tangible presence of God. Our prayer room at the office is like that. It has a different atmosphere than the other rooms in our office and there is a reason for that. Each staff member prays in that room each day we are at the office and it has made a difference in the atmosphere in that particular room and that difference is obvious when you walk into the prayer room. That is how it will become in your place of prayer as well.

One thing you can do is to pray in the home, pray for your spouse, your children, and your extended family, and pray for everything you can think of but spend time each week praying at home. Pray and ask God to bless your home and cause it to be a sanctuary and a place of rest for your family.

If you seek Him through praying in your home, He will make His abode in your home.

Another thing I do, personally, is worship daily in my home. Worship creates an atmosphere that is filled with the presence of God. He literally abides in the midst of your praise and worship. Just try it for a week and you will see the drastic difference as your home becomes a place of worship.

Now, obviously you can’t pray and worship ALL the time. Life does keep moving and we can’t stop it. For that reason, I keep worship music playing in my home all the time, twenty-four hours a day. I have found that if I want to cultivate a place of peace then I need to work at it, and when I can’t work at it, I have found music that cultivates an atmosphere of the tangible presence of God. Bad music brings bad atmospheres but worship music brings the presence of God and I must say it is wonderful to come home from a day of errands or grocery shopping or work and walk into the peace and presence of God as I enter my home. There is simply nothing like it.

Now that we have looked at what NOT to have in your home and what TO have in your home, let’s look at the anointing and how it affects your home. First, let’s look at some scriptures about the anointing oil:

And you shall take the anointing oil, and anoint the tabernacle and all that is in it; and you shall hallow it and all its utensils, and it shall be holy. Exodus 40:9

And he poured some of the anointing oil on Aaron’s head and anointed him, to consecrate him. Leviticus 8:12

Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. James 5:14

From these three scriptures alone, we see that the anointing oil is to sanctify and to hallow people and things. To sanctify and hallow means to dedicate to God, to set apart and to cause to be holy.

To be anointed is to be made sacred; this is a subject that is important to God, He mentioned it more than 150 times in scripture.

If you remember, in the Old Testament, anything that was set apart and holy unto God was not allowed to be touched by the enemies of God. God Himself forbids others to touch what was anointed and set apart unto God. If your home is set apart and holy unto God then God will protect your home.

The first thing you need to do when you bring the anointing oil into your home is to bless it. Some may believe that it must be blessed by a minister, however we have all been given the authority to bless our homes and other people through the name of Christ. You can simply hold the bottle before the Lord and ask God to bless the oil by His Spirit and that everything you would bless with this oil will be spiritually sanctified by the power of God.

After you have blessed the oil and ask God to bless the oil you can apply it anywhere you would like in your home or wherever God leads you to anoint.

Personally, when I prayed over my home recently I anointed the doors and the windows of my home, every entrance was anointed and prayed over. In the Old Testament the people of God applied the blood to the doorpost of their home, for this reason, I not only anoint my home but I also apply the blood of Jesus to every door and window of my home.

I have in times past anointed other areas as well, such as my bed, the kids beds and different things in regards to the manner I was praying that day – simply let God lead you in what you anoint and pray over.

Tomorrow, I will share some sample prayers you can pray and declare over each room but again, allow God to lead you in the manner that He would specifically have you pray over your own home and family.

My goal in my writings this week is that your home would be a place of peace AND a place where the manifest Spirit of God dwells. As He fills your home, you will find, within Him is all you will ever need. My prayer today is…that your home will be blessed with the tangible presence of God from this day forth.

Prayer for Today: Father, I thank you for your presence, may your presence fill the home of each person reading this, as they seek you and worship you. Lead them Lord, in the way they should go. For this, we give you praise, in Jesus name. Amen.
