Over the past two Sundays my Bishop had been preaching from Galatians 6. One of the things he mentioned and had me thinking about was how things can be passed from one generation to the next. Sometimes we struggle in life with certain things not understanding why we have been “dealt the hand” that has been given to us. At times many of the problems that have occurred are the results of our own doing while others are the result of generational curses that have passed down the family blood line.
Such might be poverty where everyone in your family is always broke and have struggled to financial freedom. Perhaps its your lack of education because everyone in your family has a history of dropping out of school. Or, maybe you struggle with drug addiction like everyone like those that surround you.
Just because someone said you will never be anything in life, doesn’t mean you have to believe it. Though something negative may have been spoken over your life and those of your loved ones, you have the power to change it. Generational curses can be broken, you just have to take the first step in believing you can conquer it with the help of God. The Bible says in 1 John 4:4, “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
Make your requests known to God and ask him for His help with whatever your struggling with today. It may not be easy at first, but take Him at His word and trust that He will carry you through.
