Do you have a habit a dissing your life? Or your choices? Or other people? Do you whine and complain about what may or may not happen tomorrow? Do you hear about a possible opportunity and immediately assume it won’t happen? Do you regularly muse that things are going to get worse? Be careful. It’s easy to curse your present and your future by simply trying to protect yourself.
I tend to do this a lot. Things don’t go well and I assume they will get worse. Or at least won’t get any better. I think I have to “be honest” if I’m going to speak with integrity. I don’t want to get my hopes up, so I dash them before life can. I curse myself and potentially miss out on some blessings.
Are you familiar with this concept? Here’s the deal. We are created in the image of God (Gen. 1:27), who spoke reality into existence (Gen 1:3,5, etc.). Jesus is the Word of God (John 1). Words are more powerful than most of us think. We, like God, actually create reality with our words. When we muse that things could get worse, we are essentially cursing the ourselves and situation. We see and example of this in Job 3:25. Job created a reality in his words and mind, and eventually it happened. It reversed only when he saw God as who He really is and repented.
Self-cursing easy to fix. Repent and watch your words. Speak and declare the positive, the potential, the good, the promises of God. Renew your mind (Rom 12:2) to believe that God is good, the giver of good gifts (James 1:17). And stop cursing yourself!
