Blessing And Curse: Choose The One You Want Celestians
Those days in primary school, we were taught “words and Opposites”: Boy the opposite is Girl, Come the opposite is Go, Sit and the opposite is Stand. Therefore, the Bible is very clear, Curse is surely the opposite of Blessing.
Obedience to God is the ingredient to attracting God’s Blessings. While, Disobedience to God will surely lead to Curses. Deuteronomy 28:1-68 critically tells us the mind of God concerning obedience and disobedience to the commandments and statutes of God. Verse one and two says “And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I commanded thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations on earth.
And all these Blessings shall come on thee and overtake thee, if thou shall hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God”
The factors that simply leads to God’s blessings are:-
(a) You must hearken diligently unto the voice of the lord. That is, you must be willing to hear God’s voice and those things he wants to tell you, OBEDIENCE. (b) You must observe and do all His commandments. That is, you must strictly runaway from SIN.
However, in verse fifteen, the Bible says “but it shall come to pass, if thou will not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all His commandments and statutes which I command thee this day, that all these Curses shall come upon and overtake thee”
Therefore, the factors that simply lead to curses are :-
(a) failure to hearken unto the voice of the lord. That is, failure to listen to what God has commanded, DISOBEDIENCE (b) failure to observe and not do all the commandments and statutes of God, when you fail to run away from sin.
Are you still wallowing in Sin and Curses? Then you really need to call yourself to order. Are you listening to the voice of God and observing to do all His commandments and Statutes?
Deuteronomy 29:29, says “the secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law”. Ask God today for the holy spirit to always guide and nurture you towards obeying and doing God’s commandments.
Finally,God himself said in Deuteronomy 30:19,that “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses:therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live”.
LEARN TO OBEY GOD, YOU WILL SURELY BE BLESSED!!!
