I delved into the behind-the-scene workings in the lives of many Christians, who though are always sitting under great graces, great preachers and great anointings, continually experience catalogues of woes in their everyday day lives. This indeed is a paradox, but there are things that open people’s lives to irreversible curses
If you are born again, you are already blessed beyond measure in heavenly places, but between the time it transits from heavenly places to the earth, it can be blocked! But this is where it gets even worse: only you can block it
Here are the poisonous traits you must avoid, so your blessings cannot be blocked.
- AFFLICTIVE DOUBT AND UNBELIEF.
No one can receive any blessing from God except through faith. Your life expands according to your faith and shrinks according to your doubt. It listening to the word of God consistently that gives birth to faith (So also it is listening to the wrong word that births doubt) . Until you receive the word with faith it won’t work.
- PERPETUAL SIN AND NON-REPENTANCE
You can’t be living in sin as a lifestyle and expect to be blessed. To be blessed mean your prayers are receiving answers. Living in conscious and deliberate sin blocks answers to prayers and therefore blocks blessings. Don’t ignore your sins, confess your sin and repent from it then your blessings will flow.
- BITTERNESS AND ACCUMULATED GRUDGES
Bitterness is the reason for selective memory. You can’t be bitter and expect your life to be better. Do you know what? God will never ask you, who made you bitter! He will only ask, “Why are you bitter? Because God is love personified, whenever you walk in love, you actually walk in God. Bitterness gives the devil an inroad into your life.
Anyone that cannot forgive is not a Christian because forgiveness is the mark of genuine holiness. Any sin you don’t forgive is what God keeps seeing in you whenever He looks at you. Beloved, nothing helps you like forgiveness. Don’t wait for someone to offend you, forgive in advance. The proximity of the temptation to demonstrate unforgiveness and harbor bitterness is a sign of proximity of a great blessing. Watch out! LET FORGIVENESS BE YOUR WEAKNESS. Be quick to give and forgive.
- DISHONOR TO SPIRITUAL AND BIOLOGICAL PARENTS
Avoid the curse of any man of God by all means. Let your parents die happy. Be a pillar of support to your spiritual and biological parents and be that dream they couldn’t fulfill. If your spiritual and biological parents bless you then the blessings will flow towards you.
- EVIL SPEAKING
Until you speak right nothing will go right. Your life, like your stomach gets filled through your words. Understand that God will only do that which what you declare. Therefore carefully chose your words in whatever circumstance you find yourself. Evil speaking in terms of slander, gossiping, lying is one of the vital reasons the blessings don’t flow.
- IRRATIONAL ANGER
Anger is mental drunkenness. Any decision taken in a state of anger will always be wrong. Wherever anger is, the devil is there! Anger is just one letter from danger.
- STINGINESS (Disobedience to financial principles)
The more stingy you are, the more your life becomes pain filled. Every stinginess leads to financial curses. Do you observe that giving and blessings go together? You must be generous to a fault.
- PAYING GOOD DEEDS WITH EVIL
Don’t bite the finger that feeds or once fed you. Desist from pulling people down or rebelling against those who once helped you. Blessings comes in the order of seed sown so also are curses.
