Today … if you are feeling sick, sad, poor, defeated, confused, poor or generally cursed … I have really good news for you!
“Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us…” Galatians 3:13 (NKJV)
You have been redeemed! Maybe like me, you may have read that and not completely understood it. What does it mean to you personally ~ to your issues; to your sadness or sickness; to your poverty? Let me share what I learned and what this means for you personally!
Jesus Christ, when HE died on the cross for you and me … HE redeemed us from every curse that came, or will ever come our way. When Adam and Eve were deceived in the garden, sin, evil and calamity entered this world. God so loved us, that He sent Jesus who walked this earth, experienced our pain, and then sacrified His life so He could take upon Him all of our curses of depression, oppression, grief, sickness, poverty, and sin … He bore it all for us!
Redeemed: to buy back; repurchase; to free from distress or harms; to release from blame or debt; to free from the consequences of sin; to change for the better; repair; restore, reform!
To truly understand the magnitude of what that means for you, I encourage you to read Deuteronomy 28:15-68 … where Moses identifies in detail every curse ~ confusion, poverty, mental and physical ailments, etc. ~ that would come because of disobedience to God. BUT the good news, is that Jesus redeemed you from every single one, when you received Him as your Lord and Savior! As you read those scriptures and recognize the curses that have come into your life …. say, because of Jesus I AM REDEEMED from … (be specific). Make it personal, because Jesus gave His life in exchange for yours. Claim your victory, for you are an overcomer because of Christ. Begin to see yourself victorious!
In the end, Moses says:
“… I have set before you life and death, the blessings and the curses; therefore choose life, that you and your descendants may live.” Deuteronomy 30:19
You have a choice to live/die defeated or to live victoriously as God intended. Remember how much God loves you; He created you in His image; you’re a new creature in Christ; Jesus took all your sin and curses, AND gives you life eternal. Choose and receive your good news ~ claim your victory today!
