MOVING FROM CURSES TO BLESSINGS (I)


FIRE SCRIPTURE: Deuteronomy 28:1-13


MEMORY VERSE:

Proverbs 26:2 "As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come."


PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit


THE MESSAGE:

A curse is an anointing to fail. It is an invisible barrier to receiving the blessings of the Christian life. When you curse a person, you utter an evil wish against that person, causing mischief or injury to come upon that person. To curse a person is to bind that person with a spell as witches do. It is to engage in a violent expression of evil against a person. Curses are words put together to torment with great calamity. A curse is an invisible barrier that keeps people or things away from what God has for them. However, the greatest problem about curses is that most people who have been cursed do not know. 


How do you know if there is a curse at work in your life? Deuteronomy 28 gives us an insight: First, there will be mental and emotional breakdown (Deuteronomy 28:20, 28, 34, 65, 66). Such a victim may be haunted by an inner voice that tells him to say, think or do weird things. The second sign of a life under a curse is repeated or chronic illness, including wasting diseases that are characterised by lack of clear medical diagnosis, being prolonged and running in a family (Deuteronomy 28:22, 27, 35, 59 and 61). The third sign includes barrenness, repeated miscarriages and related female problems. This stems from Deuteronomy 28:18, "The fruit of thy womb shall be cursed." This curse therefore, affects reproductive organs and functions. It also causes barrenness, miscarriage, irregular and problematic menstruation. Another sign that a life is under a curse is marriage breakdown and alienation in families (Deuteronomy 28:30a, 41). This curse is the reason many sons and daughters live sinful, wayward and ungodly lives. It is also the reason many siblings live in strife, rivalry and disunity when they should be bound together in love. Abject financial and material lack is another sign that a life is cursed (Deuteronomy 28:17). When wretchedness is the order of the day and a person's genuine effort always yields no result, there is a curse at work. Being prone to frequent and unnatural accident, sometimes as a result of other people's fault is a sign that a person is under a curse. Finally, unnatural death in a family or tribe is an indicator of an umbrella curse on that family tree.


Beloved, is any or some of these signs evident in your life? There is a way out. Accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour now. Repent of all your sins and break the curse(s), in the name of Jesus. Once any curse at work in your life is broken and the demon behind it is cast out, you will have a divine turnaround and fulfillment.

Count your blessings, not your troubles.
