Curses are real, and they are supernatural forces that works ruin no matter the effort of the victim and help of others Gen. 3:16-17; 2Sam. 1:21. When a curse is triggered, it often passes from down the generation line, with a lifespan of three to four generations Exo. 20:3-5. When this happens, we refer to it as generational curse. The good news is that all curses, including generational curse, are reversible Col. 2:14.
Breaking Generational Curse.
The blessing of God is the answer to every curse Gen. 12:2-3; Num. 23:8; Isa. 65:8. In essence, to break a generational curse one must invoke God’s blessing on one’s life.
Scriptural Ways of Invoking God’s Blessing.
When one is saved and remain so, one has invoked the blessings of God on one’s life. Remember, when one is blessed by God, he walks free from all curses.
Sin brought man into curses at the beginning, access back to blessing in life is going to be by doing away with sin. In essence, becoming saved will connect a believer to blessing, but it is by walking in righteousness that the blessing is sustained.
Serving God is one other vital way to sustain the blessing of God connected to at the point of salvation. Remember, service is not just attending church services but of practical involvement in the Father’s business, which is essentially about winning lost souls.
In conclusion, individual believers have to make the choice of either a life of curses or blessings Deut. 30:19. And the choice of each one is shown by the life he lives and what he does. You can make the choice for the life of blessing right now, and when this is done you will eternally have nothing to do with curses again in life.
To anyone reading this that will love to give his/her life to Christ, pray this prayer out loud with me from your heart: “Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins; wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.”
