Proverbs 26:2 (ESV)
Like a sparrow in its flitting, like a swallow in its flying,
a curse that is causeless does not alight.
Sparrows and swallows are birds that don’t descend until they find a place or a reason to land. Similarly, a curse will not come without a cause.
What is a curse? A curse is like a supernatural shadow that follows us and limits us from our full potential. It can affect people, families, physical locations, business, etc. and can’t be solved using medical sciences or technology.
A curse can come for many reasons – by demonic powers, from poor choices, due to handling God’s work carelessly, by being a Believer yet insulting the work of the Holy Spirit, from being disrespectful to God, etc. In spite of having all kinds of worldly pleasures, Peace, Joy, and Happiness would seem like a far cry. Why? Because of a looming curse.
Still, there is the Blood of Jesus that breaks every curse. Sometimes ancestral curses may lay claim on our lives but at the Cross of Jesus, all curses become null and void. The Psalmist David sang – “As the deer panteth for the waters, so my soul longs for you”. What was he singing? In the waters, the deer become untraceable as the predator loses its smell. In the same way, our enemies cannot sniff us out when we are immersed in the Holy Spirit. The moment we repent and give our life to God, His Blood takes over and then every curse has to flee from us as we have the anointing to enter God’s Presence. Hallelujah! What a Savior!
God neither answers our prayers based on the virtue of our merit, nor does He answer us based on our sinful lives. He answers us on the merit of His own character because He is a merciful God!
Dear Lord, we thank You that no curse can come into the dwelling place of Your children. We thank You for the Blood of Jesus that makes all our curses null and void. We thank You for Your power that is over all sin and darkness. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
