Curses Can Be Broken

Americans may not believe in curses. Depending on their religious views or what section of the country they live in. Years ago, I read books from an author traversing the country on foot: Walk Across America by Peter Jenkins; and the second tome, A Walk West: Walk Across America 2 by Peter and Barbara Jenkins.

If I remember the following ideas from one of his books correctly, in the bayou of Louisiana, a woman cursed him when he went by her house. He was a Christian so he relied on the Scripture: Proverbs 26:2 (ISV). “Like a fluttering sparrow or a swallow in flight, a curse without cause will not alight.”

I believe the verse in Isaiah 54:17(BBE): “No instrument of war which is formed against you will be of any use; and every tongue which says evil against you will be judged false. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness comes from me, says the Lord.”

I also take comfort from the verse in the epistles of the New Testament: Galatians 3:13:

(KJV) Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

Whether you believe in curses or not, Jesus said in John 10:10 that the devil comes to steal, kill and destroy. I have come to give life and that abundantly.

So, I’ll choose Jesus. His love and care for me overwhelms me at times.

He delivers us from curses in our past and our present and our future. How about you? Have you looked to Jesus for relationship, for provision, for redemption?
