20 Bible Verses to Protect Your Home from Evil

Here are the 15 verses that you can use to protect your home from evil

1. Psalm 91:1-2

Psalm 91:1-2

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.”

This verse reminds us that God is our ultimate protector and defender. He is our refuge and our fortress, where we can find safety and rest. He is our God, in whom we trust. Nothing can harm us when we dwell in His presence.

One story that illustrates this verse is the story of Corrie ten Boom, a Christian woman who hid Jews from the Nazis during World War II. She and her family lived in a house with a secret room behind a false wall, where they sheltered many Jewish people from the Nazi raids. They also had a Bible and a radio hidden in the secret room, which they used to listen to God’s word and to pray. Corrie ten Boom later wrote: “In that ancient building, always dark and damp, there was one bright spot. It was the little closet where we held our worship services. There, with a small Bible hidden among the clothes, we felt safe under the shadow of the Almighty.”

Corrie ten Boom and her family trusted God as their refuge and their fortress, even when they faced danger and persecution. They dwelled in the secret place of the Most High, and He protected them from evil. Unfortunately, they were eventually betrayed and arrested by the Nazis, but even then, God did not abandon them. He gave them strength and courage to endure their trials, and He used them to share His love and grace with others. Corrie ten Boom survived the concentration camp and became a famous speaker and author, telling her story of God’s faithfulness and power.

This story shows us how Psalm 91:1-2 can inspire us to trust God in any situation and to seek His presence as our ultimate protection.

2. Joshua 24:15

Joshua 24:15

But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.

This verse challenges us to make a choice: whom will we serve? Will we serve the gods of this world, or the God who created us and loves us? Will we follow the ways of the world, or the ways of the Lord? Joshua made his choice clear: he and his household would serve the Lord.

One example of how this verse has inspired someone is [Eric Liddell], who was an Olympic champion and a missionary to China. He said that this verse was his motto for life, and that he wanted to honor God with everything he did. He refused to run on Sunday, because it was his day of worship. He also gave up his athletic career to serve God in China, where he died in a prison camp during World War II.

3. Proverbs 3:33

Proverbs 3:33

The Lord’s curse is on the house of the wicked, but he blesses the home of the righteous.

This verse contrasts the fate of the wicked and the righteous. The wicked will face God’s curse on their house, which means they will experience trouble, sorrow, and destruction. But the righteous will receive God’s blessing on their home, which means they will enjoy prosperity, happiness, and protection.

George Müller, who was a Christian evangelist and orphanage founder in England.  said that this verse was one of his favorite promises from God, and that he saw it fulfilled in his life many times. He trusted God to provide for his needs and for thousands of orphans under his care. He never asked anyone for money or help; he only prayed to God. And God always answered his prayers miraculously.

4. Psalm 127:1

Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.

This verse teaches us that we need God’s help and guidance in everything we do. We cannot build our homes or our lives by our own strength or wisdom. We need God to be the foundation and the builder of our house. We also need God to be the watchman and the protector of our city. Without Him, we are wasting our time and effort.

An example of this verse is [Nehemiah], who was a Jewish leader who rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem after the exile. He faced many oppositions and threats from his enemies, who tried to stop his work. But he trusted God to help him and protect him. He prayed to God and said, “The God of heaven will give us success. We his servants will start rebuilding, but as for you, you have no share in Jerusalem or any claim or historic right to it.” (Nehemiah 2:20)

5. Psalm 27:1

“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”


This verse is a declaration of confidence in God’s light and salvation for those who trust in Him. It means that God is our source of illumination and deliverance; He dispels any darkness or danger that may threaten us or our homes. He is also our stronghold or fortress; He provides us with security and stability.

One example of this verse in action is the story of Moses. When he was leading the Israelites out of Egypt, he faced many challenges and enemies along the way. But God was his light and his salvation; He guided him with a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. He also protected him from Pharaoh’s army by parting the Red Sea and drowning them. (Exodus 13:17-22; 14:1-31)

You can apply this verse to your home by declaring it out loud and by faith. You can also write it on a piece of paper and stick it on your door or wall as a declaration of your confidence. You can say something like this:

“Lord, I thank You that You are my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? You are the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? I declare that You illuminate my path and deliver me from any trouble. You provide me with security and stability. In Jesus’ name, amen.”

6. Isaiah 54:17

says: “No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that rises against you in judgment you shall condemn.

This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me,’ says the Lord.” This verse declares that God will protect us from any harm or accusation that comes our way, and that He will vindicate us as His children.

One story that illustrates this verse is the story of Daniel, a prophet who served in the Babylonian empire. Daniel was faithful to God and prayed to Him three times a day, even though it was forbidden by the king’s decree. Some of the king’s officials were jealous of Daniel and plotted to destroy him. They convinced the king to sign a law that anyone who prayed to any god or man other than the king for thirty days would be thrown into the lion’s den. They knew that Daniel would not obey this law, and they hoped to get rid of him.

When Daniel learned about the law, he did not stop praying to God. He went to his room, opened his window toward Jerusalem, and prayed as usual. The officials saw him praying and reported him to the king. The king was very upset, because he liked Daniel and did not want to harm him. But he could not change the law, so he ordered Daniel to be thrown into the lion’s den. He said to Daniel, “May your God, whom you serve continually, rescue you!” (Daniel 6:16)

The king spent a sleepless night, worrying about Daniel. He got up at dawn and hurried to the lion’s den. He called out to Daniel, “Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to rescue you from the lions?” (Daniel 6:20)

To his great joy, he heard Daniel’s voice saying, “O king, live forever! My God sent his angel and shut the mouths of the lions. They have not hurt me, because I was found innocent in his sight. Nor have I ever done any wrong before you, O king.” (Daniel 6:21-22)

The king was overjoyed and ordered Daniel to be lifted out of the den. He saw that Daniel was unharmed by the lions. He then commanded that those who had accused Daniel be thrown into the den along with their families. The lions overpowered them and crushed all their bones before they reached the floor of the den.

The king then issued a decree that everyone in his kingdom should fear and reverence the God of Daniel, for he is the living God and he endures forever; he rescues and he saves; he performs signs and wonders in heaven and on earth. He has rescued Daniel from the power of the lions. (Daniel 6:26-27)

This story shows us how Isaiah 54:17 can apply to our lives. No weapon formed against us shall prosper, and every tongue that rises against us in judgment we shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Him.


7. Proverbs 18:10

says: “The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.”

This verse reminds us that God’s name is powerful and mighty, and that we can call on Him in times of trouble and find refuge.

A perfect story that illustrates this verse is the story of David and Goliath, found in [1 Samuel chapter 17]. David was a young shepherd boy who volunteered to fight against Goliath, a giant Philistine warrior who defied the armies of Israel. Goliath was armed with a spear, a sword, and a javelin, and wore a heavy armor. David had only a sling and five smooth stones, and wore no armor. But David trusted in God’s name and power, and said to Goliath: “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the LORD Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.” (1 Samuel 17:45)

David ran toward Goliath and slung one stone at him, hitting him in the forehead. Goliath fell to the ground, and David cut off his head with his own sword. The Philistines fled in terror, and the Israelites pursued them and won a great victory. David’s faith in God’s name enabled him to overcome a seemingly impossible challenge, and to bring glory to God.

This story shows us how Proverbs 18:10 can apply to our lives. The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe. We can rely on God’s name and power when we face difficulties or enemies, and He will deliver us and honor us.
