When you enter a place, you bring your peace and good energy to it.
Many of us have dreams to live in a certain kind of home. Perhaps you have been planning out or have already built your dream home. Perhaps you do not yet have a home.
No matter what living circumstance we are in, we can change our thoughts and feelings instantaneously through a mere paradigm shift: How can we be better stewards and custodians of the energy that we bring into a place?
Positive energy is another word for peace. God calls his people to live in peaceable habitations.
Have you ever walked into a room and something felt "off"? You should not ignore that unction in your gut or heart. That is God trying to warn you through intuition that there is negativity or danger nearby. This defense mechanism was built in us out of God's love for us. You may also see animals exhibiting strange behavior before a storm long before humans catch on. They too trust that leading. We are often not taught to value the energy that we bring. Having positive energy is more valuable than wealth.
King Solomon understood this principle. He said that it was better to live in the corner of a housetop than with a brawling woman. He also advised that it was better that there was a dinner of herbs where there was love than a more gourmet dinner where there was hatred.
Jesus also understood this principle. He told his disciples to let their peace fall upon a place when they entered it. Having positive energy is as simple as being conscious of the fruit of the spirit of peace.
You are the custodian of the energy you bring to your home, place of worship and place of employment. People will need your input and help. When you have a positive spirit, it catches on to others. Likewise, bad energy can run through an area like a cancer and open you up to demonic influence.
Choose today to think and act positive, and be cognizant of the energy you pour into your dwelling. As you believe God to expand your territory, praise him for your current situation, trusting that he will bring you to a good place of promotion and peace.
