Build Your Wall

“A man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls.” ~ Proverbs 25:28

You are the city, and self-control is your walls. If you don’t have self-control, sin can come in and overcome you at any time. Without walls, you will become a slave to sin. See, we have to build up walls by learning, memorizing, and using Scripture. We PHYSICALLY speak verses over our lives to set up SPIRITUAL walls around us.

Satan replied to the Lord, “Yes, but Job has good reason to fear God. 10 You have always put a wall of protection around him and his home and his property. You have made him prosper in everything he does. Look how rich he is!

Job 1:9-10 NLT

According to verses 4 and 5 of that same chapter, Job would get up early in the morning and sacrifice on behalf of his children just in case they had sinned against God. If Job did this on behalf of his children, we can assume he made sacrifices on behalf of himself as well. Remember what Satan said about Job? ‘You have always put a wall of protection around and his and his property.’ This didn’t just happen because God liked Job; Job did a physical act to see a spiritual outcome.

We have to start speaking over our children’s lives. We have to start building up walls around ourselves, our family, and our property just as Job did. Building up walls won’t happen overnight. Building up self-control won’t happen overnight, but brick by brick you will build a sturdy wall that will be able to keep out the sin that’s trying to enslave you. You will build up a wall of protection around your children. You will build up a wall of protection around all that you have.

It won’t be easy, but it is possible to overcome every obstacle set before us because we have the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. We can overcome because Jesus first overcame, and when He left, He sent The Spirit to be our Helper. We don’t have bricks of stone to build our walls, but instead, we have Scripture as our bricks.

12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

Hebrews 4:12

So don’t be defeated; anyone can gain self-control. Start speaking the Word of God over your life. Over your spouse’s life. Over your children’s lives. Over your home. Over your business. Build up an impenetrable wall around you and your family and all that you own so that when the day of temptation comes (and it will come), you will have a strong defense so that you may not be overcome.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Build Your Wall.
