Dearly Beloved, I greet and bless you in the name of our Creator, Maker, and ever unforgettable Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book ofZechariah 2:4,5 , “For I, says the Lord, A man went with a measuring line, in his hand to measure Jerusalem. God sent a prophet to tell the young man, that Jerusalem shall be inhabited, as towns without walls, because of the multitude, of men and livestock in it. For I, says the Lord, will be a wall of fire all around her. And I will be the glory in her midst.”
From the above context God says, that He will surround Jerusalem with a wall of fire and His glory will descend in the midst of the people. He will guard and protect the inhabitants of Jerusalem, since it is a town without walls, and has multitude of men and livestock. God says, He will descend upon the city in a glorious manner and will do marvelous things for His children today. Wherever you may be, today God has come into your midst gloriously.
If God himself, has put a hedge of fire around your house, and has come in the midst of your place, then keep the place Holy. To hold the glorious Lord in your house, your prayer centre, your business centre, and in the place you stay or go to stay , your mouth should be filledwith praise. You should always sing and praise the Lord, all the days of your life to see victory in your life in all that you do. There should be voice of praise ringing in your house all the time. The Bible says, “Whoever offers praise glorifies Me. And to him who orders his conduct, aright, I will show the salvation of God.”
If you need the glory of God to remain in your house, then you need to glorify God, all the time. But how will you glorify? Through praise and worship. Then the Lord will be magnified. You can play good Christian songs in full volume and let it be heard in all the rooms. As the song is played, even your children will begin to sing as they get ready to school. The entire house will be filled with the songs of praise in the air. This will help to keep all unwanted thoughts, worries away from the members of your family. Instead all the members will be able to hear and enjoy the songs and at the same time praise the Lord. The air in the house will be filled by the glory of God, in the early morning. The Aroma of God and His presence will be felt in all the rooms of your house.
My beloved, You must have noticed how children begin to dance when music is played in your house. This is because, music will create joy and energy, in the mind, and hearts of the children. Children tend to catch up easily what you play or watch in your TV . They will either be good or bad according to your way of bringing them up. If your house is filled with prayer and singing then they will grow as spiritual children growing in the fear of God, or they will grow as other worldly children. You need to be careful as to how you grow your children. Whatever you desire to happen can only be got by praising God. Children too from their childhood days, will learn to sing and praise God. Even without their knowledge your house will be filled with the voice of praises. Then your house will be like a small heaven. The Bible says, He is a God who descends in the midst of praises. The Psalmist says, “My praise shall be of You in the great congregation.”
The Psalmist says, Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endures to all generations. God Bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord through this message we understand how necessary it is to sing and praise You. We are excited to know that you live in the midst of praises. We will praise you all the days of our life, for Your love and kindness. We shall glorify and exalt Your name, which are above all other names. Let the Blessings of God enter our homes as we lift up our voices and praise the Lord who inhabits the praises of Israel.
