a hatian pastor tells a story of a man that wanted to buy a house but he could not afford it. the price for the house was $2000.00, but he only could afford to spend $1000.00. so the owner offered to sell the man the house for $1000.00 on one condition. he would retain ownership of a nail that was in the door post above the front door. the nail could not be removed and he retained ownership of that one spot. the man agreed, but when the original owner came back and wanted to buy back the house, the owner said no it’s not for sale it’s my house. so the original owner, still owning the nail over the front door, went out and hung a dead dogs carcass on the nail…the smell got so bad that the house became uninhabitable and the owner had to vacate the house because of the carcass. he owned the nail and now the house was put up for sale because no one could live in it!
if you make room, even the smallest amount of room, like the size of a nail. the devil can come and hang a dead rotting carcass on it and turn the whole place into a house that is uninhabitable! he will hang hurts, bitterness, envy, greed and even lust over the door of your house. what you make room for in your life will determine who you are! what are you making room for?
ephesisans 4:27 – don’t leave the devil any room!
