See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse Deu 11:26
Story: Just before Israelites entered Canaan, Lord asked Moses to give them instructions. Let’s us look at couple serious warning that the Lord gave
1 – Be careful, or you will be enticed to turn away and worship other gods and bow down to them. Then the Lord’s anger will burn against you, and he will shut up the heavens so that it will not rain and the ground will yield no produce, and you will soon perish from the good land the Lord is giving you.
2 – See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse— the blessing if you obey the commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today; the curse if you disobey the commands of the Lord your God and turn from the way that I command you today.
Lesson: We like to hear only about miracles, deliverance, prosperity etc. One truth we do not like to hear is that we are accountable for our wrong actions. Our God is a loving as well as a just God, he loves the sinner but hates sin. There are some blessing that can be blocked due to certain sinful ways.
Lord wants to bless all, but when we disobey we are breaking the pattern of the Lord and we are giving foothold for satan. There are curses that can come into our lives due to certain sins. Let us be careful about the way we live..
Prayer: Father Lord, help us to live in holiness, forgive me, Lord for all the disobedience. Amen.
