YOU CANNOT BE CURSED
Joshua 24:9-10 NKJV "Then Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, arose to make war against Israel, and sent and called Balaam the son of Beor to curse you. But I would not listen to Balaam; therefore he continued to bless you. So I delivered you out of his hand."
Balaam was a seer. Balak saw what the Israelites had done to the Amorites and was afraid of them. He knew that he couldn't defeat them in war, and decided to use spiritual weapons instead of physical ones; so he sent his men to fetch Balaam to curse the people of God. But God appeared to him at night and said, “You shall not go with them; you shall not curse the people, for they are blessed.” Numbers 22:12
Well, because of greed, Balaam disobeyed God and went with them to curse the children of God. But something interesting happened; every time Balaam opened his mouth to curse them, God caused him to bless the Israelites instead. And he said, "Behold, I have received a command to bless; He has blessed, and I cannot reverse it. For there is no sorcery against Jacob, Nor any divination against Israel. It now must be said of Jacob And of Israel, ‘Oh, what God has done!’"
Hallelujah! If you are born again, understand that you cannot be cursed. Why? Not because of what you have done or not done, but because you are in Christ! It doesn't matter who opens his or her mouth against you, it doesn't matter who goes to witch doctors to attack you, you are unstoppable, untouchable and "uncurseable"! Even God will not curse you for any reason! We were called to inherit the blessing! 1 Peter 3:9.
