Topic: Dealing With Ancestral Curses I [Wednesday 22, November 2017]
Memorise: “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: ” – Galatians 3:13
Read: Colossians 2:10-14
10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:
12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
Bible In One Year: Acts 22-23. Hymn: Sing Hymn 9 — My Faith Has Found Resting A Place
Many people are suffering from curses which they know nothing about because the cause of the curse took place a very long time ago in their family lineage. As a matter of fact, if you think you haven’t inherited any lineage curse, you should remember that of Adam and Eve, from who we inherited pain, hunger, sickness and death. We must deal with these curses if we want to live a meaningful and fulfilled life. In our memory verse for today, we are assured of a way of dealing with ancestral curses. This can be fought by Jesus Christ, our Lord. He was made a curse for us so that we can be delivered from the terrible consequences of sin and curses.

Jesus Christ went to the Cross with the age-long curse upon humanity. Jesus endured to the end and cried “It is finished”, that is, the price of the curse has been paid in full. Hence, the human race was liberated. Beloved, if you want to effectively deal with the ancestral curses in your life, there is one way and Jesus is that Way. Today, I advise you to surrender your life totally to Jesus Christ if you have not done so.
Prayer Point: Father, I plead the Blood of Jesus Christ, the Lamb that was slain for my deliverance and I break my link with my demonic past in Jesus’ Name.
Sing Hymn 9: My Faith Has Found Resting A Place
My faith has found a resting place,
Not in device or creed;
I trust the ever living One,
His wounds for me shall plead.
I need no other argument,
I need no other plea,
It is enough that Jesus died,
And that He died for me.
Enough for me that Jesus saves,
This ends my fear and doubt;
A sinful soul I come to Him,
He’ll never cast me out.
My heart is leaning on the Word,
The living Word of God,
Salvation by my Savior’s Name,
Salvation through His blood.
My great Physician heals the sick,
The lost He came to save;
For me His precious blood He shed,
For me His life He gave.
