“Behold, I have received a command to bless; When He has blessed, then I cannot revoke it. Numbers 23:20 New American Standard Bible
Once a king tried to hire a someone to curse the children of Israel. The person whom he hired named Balaam said something that is worth paying attention to.
Balak summoned me to come from Aram;
the king of Moab brought me from the eastern hills.
‘Come,’ he said, ‘curse Jacob for me!
Come and announce Israel’s doom.’
8But how can I curse those
whom God has not cursed?
How can I condemn those
whom the LORD has not condemned? Numbers 23:7-8 New Living Translaton
This man knew something that most Christians do not know. He knew he could not curse what God had not cursed or condemn what God had not condemned. The key here is YOU. Do you know your blessed and that you cannot be cursed without your permission and participation? Man cannot curse and the devil cannot curse you but if you don’t know this he can bring symptoms of the curse in your life and if he convinces you that the curse is functioning in your life he will use your own faith to execute the curse in your life. That is one way the enemy tries to get Christians to accept the curse. The other way is by New Testament Christians trying to live and operate under the Old Testament, specifically the law or ten commandments. Lets see what Paul had to say about that.
But those who depend on the law to make them right with God are under his curse, for the Scriptures say, “Cursed is everyone who does not observe and obey all the commands that are written in God’s Book of the Law.” Galatians 3:10 New Living Translation
When a blood bought believer tries to rely on his works and his obedience to the law to make him righteous and right before God they bring themselves back under the curse. Why? Because they cannot possibly follow and be obedient to all the laws that are out there. People tried it for 1500 years and failed miserably. The only One Who did not was Jesus! When you put your faith in what He did and not what you are trying to do then you are then functioning in the obedience of faith by accepting Him and his finished work as your righteousness. When you refuse it, you spit in God’s face and are literally saying, “I did not need you to send Jesus, I can take care of my own righteousness.” Let me know how that works out for you. The Blessing of Abraham is yours and all the other blessing including every spiritual blessing is yours by covenant right and inheritance. Believe you are blessed and accept Jesus as your righteousness and obedience. When you do rest assured that the devil cannot curse what The Father has blessed.
All the “blessed” to you! Shalom!!!
