Powerful Bible Verses to Use When and After Building a House

Matthew 16:18
And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Are you building a house? Or are you done with the finishing of your building.

The word of God is very important in our lives, because it is through God’s words, many things are communicated to us and from there we grow in the spirit and our connection with God get stronger.

Building a house with scriptures have been proven to invite the angels of God into that house.

In Genesis 28:16, And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the Lord is in this place; and I knew it not. When you honour God in your new building through scriptures, your home will forever be blessed, fruitful and peaceful.

In Mat 24:35, the Bible says, heaven and earth will pass away, but the word of God will remain. The word of God will remain from generation to generation. In John 1:1, the Bible says in the beginning was the word and word was with God and the word was God.

In Gen 1:4, And God said, let there be light, and there was light. Your decree to your building goes along to bring light and blessings.

It is important that the word of God should be pronounced when building your house and also written when you finished building your house as a way of thanking God for the success of your house building.

Writing Bible verses when and after building your house should be a culture every believer of Christ should do. Because when you put God first in your building, you will see experience His favour upon your life.

God’s words should be written on your house because it is used to glorify the name of God and also attract heaven to focus on your house. And when your building is almost completed, honour his names through the scriptures.

The word of God is used for protection, thanksgiving an victory. Some would say, putting the word of God in your house building cannot save or chase away any negative energy from coming into your habitation. Some says, my house is not built for church then why should I used it in the first place? Remember, the scriptures are used to glorify God.

For example, when I see a building with a bold scriptural inscription written on it like Joshua 24:1, the last point says, …but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. By these words, it tells me that the owner of this house is a true child of God. Remember, it’s a personal thing.

I am going to write out the short scriptures to use when building your house. You can put any of these verses in any corner of your house. The following Bible verses can also be used to pray on the foundation of your house, for protection, and for victory.
