“…the LORD your God would not listen…but turned the curse into a blessing for you, because the LORD your God loves you.”
This weekend I flew to NYC for a retreat in Connecticut. I left the house excited for a new adventure, until I got pulled in and held up at the border for no reason. Finally free, I rushed to the airport, running to the gate where my first flight was cancelled and my second flight delayed. What seemed like a curse was about to turn into a blessing!
While waiting in line to see if I could get another flight I met a really nice girl. We hit it off and talked through the whole “delay”. It was sad when they called us to board the plane and we had to end our time together!
Before the retreat my hubby and daughter sent me messages with scripture and encouragement, expressing their confidence in my ability to accomplish what God had called me there to do. Oh how my life has changed! Where I once encountered resistance and cursing for stepping out into God’s calling, I now receive blessings! I see this verse being fulfilled as the enemy still tries to speak out curses, but God just doesn’t listen to the noise! The key is in learning to do the same, training our ears to ‘tune out’ the negativity! Then we can trust God to turn things from a curse to blessing because as the verse says, “God loves YOU”!
Father…I thank-you for your power! Only you can take a curse spoken and turn it into a blessing! Please break every curse spoken over me and let my life bring you praise for the blessing! In Jesus name…Amen.
