Your Daily Proverb – Day 26
Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow, an undeserved curse does not come to rest.
If there's one thing that I've seen across the board in most American Christians, it's a woefully timid attitude in the midst of causeless curses. Sadly, the empowering truth of being MORE than a conqueror has passed through the minds of many of our brothers and sisters in Christ without taking root. When the conviction does not exist that this eternal axiom is our birthright in Christ, fear sets in and the Abundant Life soon becomes a faded dream.
Instead of accepting defeat, this should be the anthem of every follower of Christ:
“We are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:37-39)
This is an undying truth that needs to be anchored in your soul: You are NOT a victim of your circumstances. Nothing in Heaven, hell or on Earth can separate you from God's love. And, subsequently, from His protection. It doesn't matter what people say. It doesn't matter what your circumstances say. “There shall NO evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling!” (Psalm 19:10).
The devil will sneak into someone's mind, and convince them that their lot in life is to be sick, poor, alone, wounded and a victim of whatever life tries to throw at them. When these “causeless curses” come to rest on minds that are not on rooted on God's word, it can take time to develop the Mind of Christ on a matter. This is why meditating on the Scripture is so critical, and the reason why I have put together 14 key verses to help you remember the protection of God on your life.
