Here are 5 short stories from Scripture about a New House

A House Built on Wisdom – Proverbs 23

The Bible teaches us that it, “By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established,” and with that, “knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches” (Proverbs 23:3-4).  If the Lord is in that house, that house already is full of wisdom…the wisdom of God through Jesus Christ.

Peace be to You – 1 Samuel 25

When David needed help, he came to Nabal’s house and said, “Peace be to you, and peace be to your house, and peace be to all that you have” (1 Samuel 25:6), and that is my prayer for you and your new house.  Being at peace with God allows there to be peace in the home, whether it is 100 years old or a brand new (to you) house.

Serving the Lord – Joshua 14

After Israel entered the Promised Land, he warned the nation to “fear the Lord and serve him in sincerity and in faithfulness” (Joshua 14:14a).  That’s how Joshua’s home was established, so what he said millennia ago still stands true today: “But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD” (Joshua 24:15c).

The Lord Builds the House –Psalm 127 and Matthew 16

If you’ve bought a new home, remember the words of the psalmist: “Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain” (Psalm 127:1). If the Lord is not involved in your household, whatever you do can be in vain.  Just as He promised to build His church, let the Lord be the builder and architect of your house (Matthew 16:18).

Peace be to this House – Luke 10

I love what Jesus told the disciples as He sent them out to share the Gospel, saying, “Whatever house you enter, first say, Peace be to this house” (Luke 10:5).  Maybe that’s something we should all say when we enter another person’s home, but the peace of God is not possible until you are at peace with God.

Final Thoughts About Your New Home
