THE CHOICE REALLY IS YOURS
How you deal with your challenge/difficulty determines if it’s a #curse or a #blessing.
We constantly define “generational bad things” as curses.
- Maybe God has another view.
- Maybe if we sought God for His will we’d not call it a curse.
- Maybe considering our circumstance a bad thing demonstrates our selfishness.
He comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any kind of affliction, through the comfort we ourselves receive from God.
2 Corinthians 1:4 HCSB
I love this verse because it gives us one of the reasons God comforts us in our affliction . . . so that you can comfort others in the self-same way.
So the affliction that God brought into your life or allowed into your life can have a meaning which is bigger than you.
Think about it, you spend all this time praying that God does not let you have this affliction when the reality is He’s going to let that affliction become a gargantuan blessing in someone else’s life.
I womder, how many blessings have we denied from others because we were not as selfless, as we could have been?
Let me give you a testimony of generational blessings which others might call generational curses. . .
Please note: I’m not here to challenge you about your view of “generational bad things.” Nor am I telling you how you pray about them. Pray as you believe the Lord is leading you.
But I do want to challenge you to think outside of the box which you or others may have erected.
- Maybe there’s another way to pray about “bad” things?
- Maybe God wants you to experience this affliction?
- Maybe if you sought God for His will, He would just tell you, “To go with the flow.”
- Maybe He knows how you’re going to handle the affliction and wants others to see how a Godly person goes thru difficulty.
- Maybe the peace God gives you is the peace another person sees that causes them to turn to Christ.
Maybe. . .
One man’s generational cursing is another man’s generational blessing.
