The Choice: Blessings or Curses

Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!—Deuteronomy 30:19

Sometimes Christians raise the subject of a generational curse, something that’s on a family and can only be broken through prayer.

I don’t think the Bible teaches that, however. Instead, sometimes a family has a cycle of sin that is passed on from generation to generation. Certain people have brought, in effect, a curse upon their lives. And I don’t mean that in any mystical way.

So if there’s a so-called curse on your life, it’s because you’ve disobeyed God. If you’re living a sinful life, then you’ll experience the repercussions of that—a curse, if you will. You choose whether your life will be blessed or cursed.

God said to the Israelites, Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live! You can make this choice by loving the Lord your God, obeying him, and committing yourself firmly to him. This is the key to your life (Deuteronomy 30:19–20 NLT).

If you want to live a blessed and happy life, then you need to love God, obey His voice, and cling to Him. Live it. Put it into practice. And watch what the Lord will do.

The end
