That is what the curse is like—you don't intend for bad things to happen, but they do. This confuses and frustrates you, which so often leads to emotions such as bitterness, fear and anger, just to name a few.

Here is an answer to your problems. Here's how you can reverse this and stop these things from happening in your life:

Be convinced you are redeemed. Take a look in the mirror and tell yourself what Job proclaimed: "I know that my Redeemer lives..." (Job 19:25).

We are also reminded in Galatians 3:13 that Christ has redeemed us. Ephesians 1:7 tells us that we have redemption through the shed blood of our Savior.

Declare who you are in Christ. Psalm 107:2 says "Let the redeemed of the Lord say so..." You have to use your words to declare who you are. You are redeemed, so say it. Say it when you feel like it; and say it when you don't feel like it. Use your words to direct the outcome of your life. Proverbs 18:21 reminds us that life and death are in the power of the tongue.

Stop expecting bad things to happen to you. Sometimes we "brace ourselves" for bad news and bad things so they don't jolt us too much. Stop conditioning yourself to expect negative things to happen. Your spirit has enough energy and chemistry in it to bring those things upon you. That's what Job meant when he said, "For the thing I greatly feared has come upon me..." (Job 3:25).

Finally, let me share with you how to deliver an absolute knockout blow to these nagging curses and see them reversed in your life.

The first thing God asked of Adam and Eve's sons after the curse came was a sacrificial gift (see Gen. 4:3-12).

Remember this spiritual key to victory. A gift always acts as a point of contact.

But when you bring a sacrificial gift to God, it's not as if God needs it; but you do! Your gift, or your seed, releases your faith to get God involved in your situation.

Throughout scripture, it was a way in which man approached God—and rightly so. We should never approach royalty without a gift. It demonstrates respect, honor, and confidence in that person's power and ability.

So claim your freedom from poverty, emotional problems, family problems, sickness, terrorism, failure and fear today!
