EVERYTHING WE NEED FOR LIFE.
2 PETER 1:3 NIV
The Tartar tribes of central Asia used a particular curse against their enemies. They didn’t call for their swords to rust or their people to die of disease. No, they said, ‘May you stay in one place forever.’ Wow that is harsh! But the devil tries to curse us in the same way. He hates to see God’s kids happy and living their lives for Jesus to the maximum! For some people their biggest fear is death or getting really sick; but living a life that goes no where and has no point is like living in a prison, just counting the days. How depressing is that? Here’s the good news. YOU’RE NOT CURSED! You’re blessed with heaven’s best! Listen: ‘His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness’ (2 Peter 1:3). Did you know that God has placed His power in you and because of that no curse has a leg to stand on in your life? When Jesus was crucified He not only made a way for us to know God, but He also defeated the devil and all his schemes, totally humiliating him! And because you have Christ in you, (Colossians1:27) that means you carry His victory into every day! So each time the devil tell you ‘your life ain’t going no where’ you remind him that he is a loser. This is what God says about you: ‘I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out; plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for’ (Jeremiah 29:11 TM).
