Job 14:5 (NET) “Since man’s days are determined, the number of his months is under your control; you have set his limit and he cannot pass it.”
Mr. Bright could no longer sleep because it was only two months to his 45th birthday. He had gone to the village to see the village priest but returned with no solution in view. “ I can’t help you, it is your family’s heritage, no male will live to be more than 45years again in your family because your great grandfather entered into a powerful covenant with the gods of the land,” said the priest. Although Mr. Bright was a church goer, he still consulted with the village priest in hope that help will come from him. “My grandfather and dad were both Christians yet they died just some days before they turned 45, I had better help myself now when it is still possible,” he said to himself. But all hope was now lost since the village priest couldn’t help him.
Your case may be like Me Bright’s where certain negative patterns have been proven and accepted as generational and therefore should be lived with or managed. This will be true as long as you belong to Satan but as soon as you shift camp from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light, it is no longer true.
For a child of God, it is God who determines your boundaries (limit), it is never Satan nor man. If you are a child of God but still suffer negative patterns, stand against those patterns in prayer remembering that because you belong to Jesus, it is only the speakings of God that are permitted to stand in your life (Lamentations 3:27).
Worthy of note is the truth that curses only thrive where there is sin (1 Corinthians 15:56). To break away completely from curses and negative generational patterns, seek by the help of the Holy Spirit to stay away from sin. If there is a sin that seems unsurmountable, look for a respectable man of God or a senior friend who will join you in prayers. Keep confessing the sin and ask for God’s mercy until complete freedom is attained.
Go into today knowing that whatever God has not commanded can be nullified.
Prayer: because I belong to Jesus, every negative pattern in my life and family is terminated in Jesus’ name. Amen!
