Do you feel like you are doing everything you know to do, yet it still isn’t enough?
No matter how hard you try, do you feel like you can’t get to the next level financially, spiritually, relationally, physically, and in every other area of your life?
If this resonates with you, I have another question.
Have you ever considered that you could be living under a curse?
Many people hear the word curse and start thinking about witches, warlocks, and Harry Potter. That’s largely because some in Hollywood are trying to pass off witchcraft as harmless. They create movies and TV shows aimed at our children to brainwash them into believing it is mainstream, popular, and even fun.
But curses are not a joke. The Bible is a book of both blessings and curses. The opposite of a curse is a blessing. The opposite of a blessing is a curse. To be in God’s favor is to be blessed. To be outside of God’s favor is to be cursed. It’s that simple.
God, and the patriarchs in the Bible, clearly spoke of blessings and curses and the power and importance of them. Those who choose to ignore it, ignore a principle of God and the Bible. However, whether we acknowledge this truth or not, it is both real and relevant, and it applies to us, our children, and our children’s children. Many people pick and choose certain aspects of Scripture to believe while assigning others as suspect. We must not do this with the issue of blessings and curses.
Some people think they can’t break through to the next level of success in their lives simply due to bad luck. Many people self-sabotage their success because deep down inside they think they can’t handle it. Others find themselves so close to success—the finish line is just ahead—only to have it yanked out from under them at the last minute. Some feel as though they stand by in a fog as people all around them get promoted and gain success in an area of business or life. Many have accepted the fact that their pattern in life is set at a certain level and that they’re just not meant to succeed. But this is a lie!
God only wants the best for us! He wants to bless our lives. A blessing is the opposite of a curse. The absence of blessing makes the way for the curse to lay hold. The Bible tells us that no curse ever happens without a cause. “…Like a flying swallow, so a curse without a cause shall not alight” (Prov. 26:2).
In other words, the cause of curses in a person’s life may be due to the failure of the father to fulfill his responsibility to bless his child. Think about this powerful statement.
Fathers, it is our responsibility to bless our children! Only we can release that blessing to them. Our children’s wellbeing is dependent on our choice to act, to speak, to bless! The blessing must be spoken! Now is not the time to become timid and shy. We must stand up and speak words of life into our children—blessing them and encouraging them daily. Our children are depending on us!
After living life on a roller coaster of ups and downs, Billy O’Neal discovered the power and importance of a father’s blessing. That same day he made the decision to do everything in his power to receive the blessing of his father. This would be easier said than done because Billy hadn’t seen or heard from his father in over 15 years!
He left one morning with nothing more than an address to find his father in a nursing home in the North Georgia Mountains. What happened that day changed his future, along with the future of his children’s children, forever.
This anointed testimony has inspired many to take action.
