FRIDAY 23RD MARCH, 2018 MORNING PRAYER DEVOTION
SCRIPTURE READING:- DEUTERONOMY 28:15-66
TOPIC:– YOU ARE NO LONGER CURSED
TEXT:- GENESIS 3:17
The word curse in Hebrew is called “Arar” which means to bind (with spell). It also means to hem with obstacle, and also to render somebody or something powerless. It also means to resist.
Thus the first curses in Genesis 3:14, which referred to the serpent, and Genesis 3:17, which referred to Adam and his later generation or mankind is meant to destroy one’s lives and make it stand still on one position.
It’s to make one die like a pauper, and not be able to have an ends meet because everything will not be working well for someone who is cursed.
Curse is a word spoken to someone’s life with authority to have evil effect on someone’s life. And once it is spoken, that is the final.
Therefore for someone to become curseless, or curse to be removed or cancelled, it has to be through another higher authority which is more powerful and superior to the first word that was issued.
Thank God, we have another higher authority who had redeemed us from the power and evil effect of curse on our life. And that higher or highest authority or better still, “The Final Authority” is God Himself through Jesus Christ, and His Spirit in us.
Consequently, the power of the curse on us had been broken, and thereby, victory had been given to us. See Isaiah 53:1-10; Colossians 3:14-15.
In fact, before God issued curse on mankind, provision had been made already, Genesis 3:15. No wonder, He told Abraham that anybody who curses him shall be cursed, Genesis 12:3.
Joshua too, issued his own curse on Jericho in Joshua 6:26, which was later removed by the double portion anointing of Elijah on Elisha in 2 Kings 2:19-21.
See what God Himself did to Israelites in saving them from the curse at the time of Balaam and Balak in Numbers 22 Over 24.
We live in a society where people will do anything for success. God sometimes does not give us things because He wants to teach us a lesson.
How many people out there have achieved success the wrong way? How many people send their children to expensive schools, build houses, buy expensive cars, etc, with stolen money? How many people are occupying top positions yet they stole the certificates? How many people are successful out there at all costs? They are under self-inflicted curse.
Please, don’t relent in terminating curse off your life, so as for you to witness the miraculous power of God upon your life.
1. I command all inherited curses operating in my life be broken, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. I command all known and unknown curses and spell operating in my life, expired, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. I command every curses on my land, properties, work and family, paralyzed, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Have A Beautiful Week-End!
