Is There A Mouse In The House?

images-9Rev. Nigel D. Felder

Most all Christians go through some sort of spiritual warfare in life. The intensity of an attack can temp us to run and hide in fear. Jesus faced several incidents of spiritual warfare during His earthly ministry, such as His encounter with the devil in the wilderness.
Before His ascension into heaven, He descended into hell, took the keys out from Satan’s hand, and set captivity free. So why are some of us running in fear from a devil that doesn’t even have the keys to his house anymore?

The kind of spiritual battles that often attack us can be compared to a mouse that creeps into the tiny openings of our homes, sniffing and sneaking around the house while it is dark and we are sleeping. The slightest crack or crevice can invite an occasional mouse family into the house. You can feel their horrifying uncomfortable presence that leaves you feeling uneasy and insecure.

Spiritual warfare is like fighting a nasty breed of mice that have invaded the peace of your home. All it takes is just one little mouse to infiltrate your safe haven and set up camp. Their filthy droppings provide a sickening stench that signals its partners who can smell the scent. They ravage your food pantry and release nasty droppings as evidence they’ve been there.

The mouse is the devil and the droppings are the stench of his contaminating foul presence. It’s the odor of sin. The house could be your literal house, your family environment, your work environment, or even your own human vessel. Whatever way to apply the message, you decide.

In other words, you have to be careful not to give any place for the devil to creep into your house. Any tiny opening, one slight act of sin, a night spent in adultery, a quick hit of crack, or a gossiping tongue, can tear a hole in your soul that leads to contamination and hinders your relationship with God. In some cases, you may not be the guilty party leaving the doors open, but what about the other people you let into your life?

Are they opening up doors of negativity, bad influences, disobedience, and ungodly behaviors? If you can catch someone’s contagious cold, you can catch the stench of his or her droppings. Their sin can rub off on you simply by association.

The interesting point is that a mouse doesn’t go into a house that doesn’t have any food. That means if you are under spiritual warfare, the devil knows your value. He has no need to attack his own. Don’t back down in fear, and don’t backslide, but recognize that your value is what’s taking you to the next level of your destiny. God doesn’t consult your past to decide your future. He wants only the best to come out of you.

You have to sweep your house clean to get the mouse out. Serious warfare warrants a tough repellant to eradicate the enemy. “Resist the devil and he will flee from you!” So pull out the big guns and shoot from the Word of God, “for though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are mighty in God for the pulling down of strongholds.” 2 Corinthians 10:4 (NKJV)

Jesus Christ gave us power over ALL the power of the enemy. Spiritual warfare may not always be caused by a source within your physical or spiritual house, but if it is, slam shut every door of sin that enters through the eye gate, the ear gate, the mouth and the mind. Seal up every crack of iniquity to stop the infestation.

Jesus gives us an illustration pertaining to an unclean spirit that was cast out of the house. The demon stated, “I will return to my house from which I come,” The devil will try you, and test you, even after you do some house cleaning.

The truth is, once your house is swept clean and completely taken over by the Holy Spirit, you will never have a mouse in your house again.
