When Angie and I first moved into our home in West Monroe more than 22 years ago Luke was 2, Miracle & Mariah were only 4 months old and requiring a lot of medical attention. (Mikalen was in the oven and we didn’t even know it!) Great care was taken to situate the furniture, place family pictures on the walls, and decorate each room. A house becomes a home with time and love poured into establishing a pleasant environment.
Does being a Christian mean your home will automatically be blessed and protected? Absolutely not! What should you do to be certain your home is a spiritually safe place for your family? You go to the Master Builder, Jesus Christ, and see what He has promised in the Bible.
God’s Word is filled with promises of protection abound, but there is one place where they are all jam-packed in a single chapter: Psalm 91. Psalm 91 is the Lord’s covenant for divine protection. It covers every danger—sickness, disease, assault, crime, tornadoes, fire and any other threat to your safety and well-being.
It’s exciting to have the assurance that you can live in the shelter of Psalm 91 with safety and build an environment in your home that forces Satan to get out and stay out! But like any of the Lord’s promises, you have a responsibility to receive the promises of Psalm 91 by faith.
Here are some FAITH BUILDING TOOLS that will help you build a Psalm 91 house.
“Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.” –Psalm 91:1
You exist in two atmospheres, one is physical and the other spiritual. An atmosphere is defined as “a pervading or surrounding influence or spirit, general mood or environment.” In Genesis 1, the earth’s atmosphere was dark and empty—until God spoke. The spiritual atmosphere of God didn’t just all of the sudden happen to appear. God filled the atmosphere with what He wanted to take up that space.
We to have a spiritual atmosphere in our homes that we can ignite with the power of the Holy Spirit, or leave blank for anything or anyone to move into. The latter is devastating ! If we fail to keep our spiritual guard up, then we wear ourselves out continuously fighting unnecessary battles.
How can you flood your atmosphere? Try these simple, but powerful, ideas at home:
  • Download the entire Bible on an MP3 player or your smartphone. Hook it up to small desktop speakers and put it in the main living space of your home. Set it to play continuously and let it run on low volume 24 hours a day, seven days a week. No matter where you are or what you’re doing, God’s Word is being spoken into the atmosphere of your home!
  • Listen to or watch one of my messages in your home. You can order a DVD/CD combo set of my message, RECEIVING A MIRACLE IN THE MIDST OF YOUR STORM, that will help build your faith level to receive the miracle you need! To order, click here.
  • Play worship music softly throughout the day.
  • Speak the Word of God out loud throughout your day.
The Truth for Youth consists of the entire New Testament in the God’s Word Translation along with powerful graphic novels, (comic stories), that deal with the truth about these issues: drugs, drunkenness, peer pressure, pornography, sexual purity, cutting, sexting, suicide, honor, homosexuality, witchcraft, and pluralism. The plan of salvation is incorporated into each story. 
“He is my refuge and my fortress….” –Psalm 91:2, NKJV
Romans 12:2 tells us not to be conformed to this world and its ways. Media choices like television shows, movies, and music that promote fear, worry, infidelity, divorce, anger, and sexual immorality are in opposition to God’s Word and weaken the protection around you, your home, and your family.
When you take refuge in God, you remove yourself from those ungodly influences. Ask God, according to Psalm 119:37, to turn your eyes from worthless distractions and help you clean your atmosphere of all that is not pleasing to Him.
Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him…” Psalm 91:14, NKJV
Have you ever walked into a room and felt tension so thick, you could almost cut it with a knife wanted to run? The wrong spirit was most certainly to blame. James 3:16 says, “For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there” (NKJV).
When you love God with all of your heart, soul, mind, and strength, you will desire to love others as He loves them. However, if you don’t walk in love, you are walking into the devil’s territory. Strife, unforgiveness, rebellion, and pride are all the devil’s tools used to come into your home and stir up strife. Satan’s goal is to divide and destroy your home.
It is extremely expensive to allow the “luxury” of a few quarrels or to permit your children to rebel and talk back to you. When you do, you are inviting an ungodly spirit to operate in your home. On the other hand, the power of agreement is a supernatural, miracle-working power!
So, make up your mind to stop any attitudes or situations that cause destruction. When any ungodly spirit tries to raise its nasty head in your home, deal with it immediately. Say, “Spirit of strife, unforgiveness, pride and rebellion, get out of my home in the Name of Jesus!”
“A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you.” –Psalm 91:7, NKJV
The world around you—even other Christians —seem to struggle with continuous sickness and tragedy. But under God’s promise of protection, those evils will not harm you. When you stand in faith for Psalm 91 protection, you will see those around you falling, but that evil won’t come near you.
One way to appropriate your faith for supernatural protection is to anoint your home with oil. Oil represents the power of the Holy Spirit and is a symbol of faith in God’s ability to purify and make holy. It is an act of dedicating your home to Jesus.
Anoint the frame of every door in your home. As you do, pray and invite the Holy Spirit to fill every inch of your home in every room. Pray that only His will be done and that everything that is said and done in your home will be pleasing to Him.
“And the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil.” –Isaiah 10:27, NKJV
“No evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home.” –Psalm 91:10
There is power in the blood of Jesus! In 1 Peter 1:18-19, we find that we were redeemed from the curse with the precious blood of Christ. So, when the devil tries to reek havoc in our lives, we overcome him by the blood of the Lamb (Revelation 12:11).
In Luke 10:19, Jesus shows us how to appropriate His blood, “I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy.” So, we plead Jesus’ precious blood over our families, our property, and our possessions.
Shortly after Angie and I moved to West Monroe we quickly realized that the T-intersection where we lived was very dangerous. In a short period of time, 14 vehicles had crashed in our front yard. With small children, these wrecks on our property were not acceptable! One crash at 4 AM resulted in the driver unconscious with his gas pedal pressed to the floor close to our front porch. God and the fact that the tire of the car was propped off the ground are the two things that kept them from ending up in our living room!
I said, “Enough devil! You can’t kill my family!” I walked our property line, pleading the blood of Jesus. By faith I drew a blood line of protection around our property.
There has not been one single accident that resulted in a vehicle landing in our yard since I pled Jesus blood over our land 22 years ago!
In prayer and faith, you can plead the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ and draw a blood line around your property, your vehicles, your children’s schools and your workplace.
“He will order His angels to protect you wherever you go.” –Psalm 91:11
One way God carries out your deliverance and your protection is through angels. You have angels at your service. You could employ a hundred natural men for your security, but they would be limited by natural circumstances. However, angels operate under the direction of Jesus (1 Peter 3:22), and one of their duties is working on behalf of the children of God. Angels are real and powerful! As a Christian they are an important part of your life.
Let me encourage you to dispatch angels around you, your family members, your home, your vehicles, and any building you walk into. Say, “Ministering angels, I send you forth to protect my family according to Psalm 91.” Believe God that it will happen!
“His truth shall be your shield….” Psalm 91:4, NKJV
The Word of God is ammunition, a sharp sword (Hebrews 4:12), so when we pray the Word, we pray, expecting to hit the bulls-eye!
Pray Psalm 91 for protection over your home and family. Commit it to memory, and make it a part of your heart and spirit. Put a copy somewhere in your home as a reminder of God’s commitment of protection. You can even pray something as simple as, “I pray Psalm 91 protection over my home and family today.”
Put these faith building tools to work in your life and home, and watch the dynamic power of Psalm 91 build a hedge of spiritual thorns and a wall of fire around your family that cannot be touched! The Word of God cannot be penetrated and Satan cannot stand against it!!! The Bible always produces fruit and accomplishes all it says it will do (Isaiah 55:11). Have faith in God and relax in the protection and provision that only Jesus can accomplish!!!
When you partner with Revival Fires, you are providing Bibles for, and helping to lead, incarcerated men and women on a journey toward freedom in Christ. 
I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me. (Matthew 25:36)
Let me introduce you to Eric. Eric’s story is one of redemption through the tool of our popular Truth for Youth Bible. After being sentenced to a Youth Denton center for armed robbery, Eric felt hopeless?as if his life had no meaning. Until one day, he received a copy of the Truth for Youth Bible and made the decision to choose God's plan for his life over his own. He contacted us and we have been providing him with discipleship materials that are helping him learn about the Lord and how to be successful in all areas of his life. Now released from prison, Eric is living out his new life purpose. He is a loving husband, a businessman, and an active member of his church.
Through your support of Revival Fires, you can help transform the lives of men and women behind bars?just like Eric. You can give them a second chance and help them find true freedom in Christ by providing them a copy of the Truth for Youth Bible.
Send us your prayer needs and we will pray with you! Also, please pray for the following needs we have:
