Cursing requires no foresight. It requires no insight. It requires no vision.
It involves walking by sight and not by faith. Cursing is stating plainly those things which are obvious or even declaring ill will over our brothers and sisters.
We see it closely associated with, among many other things, selfishness, jealousy, envy and lust.
Blessings are not just proclamations of good things. They are prophetic words. We speak out not what we see with our eyes, but the LORD’s intentions.
We are called to walk by faith and not by sight and we do so when we declare those things which are not yet visible but are yet to come.
Each day we are given the opportunity to bless or curse.
It is a lesson I am learning. It is also a lesson I am meant to be teaching to the body of Christ.
Our churches are rife with backbiting, gossip and rumors. These things originate straight from the pits of Hell. If we cannot bless then the best thing to do is simply remain silent.
Remember that faith is not about those things which have already come to pass or those things which are obvious to the human eye. It the belief in what remains unseen and has yet to be manifested.
It matters little what you chose yesterday. Yesterday is gone. What matters most is what you choose TODAY.
- On this day I choose to bless and not to curse.
- On this day I choose to live and to speak life into others.
- On this day I choose to declare God’s good intentions.
- On this day I choose to walk by faith and not by sight.
- On this day I choose to be an ambassador of hope.
- On this day I will watch light prevail over darkness.
