Galations 3: 13-14  “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written, ‘cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.’  He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.”

In the year 1975 we were pastoring a church in Smith Mills, Ky., when we were invited to a “barn” called the Sheep Shed.  They were having special Friday night services with Tom Hamilton. We were so spiritually hungry knowing  there was more in the Christian walk than we were experiencing.

That night Bro. Tom taught on the scripture Gal. 3:13-14 and shared with us that Deuteronomy 28 tells the blessings that will come to Israel when they obey  and the curses will come on them when they disobey.   Our hearts were so hungry as we listened to him share that Jesus took the curse of the law for us.   By faith and believing in what Jesus did for us, we have the right to expect to receive the blessings of Deuteronomy 28 and not the curses.  It changed our lives to realize that the Bible was meant to be studied and believed and God had so much for us in His Word.

God’s Word promises no more curse.  Anytime the devil comes against you, you speak forth the Word of God, and you declare daily, “There shall be no more curse in my life.”  Faith is the source of the blessing of God that initiates the flow of favor.  The Bible says, “The just shall live by his faith.”(Rom.1:17) We are redeemed from the curse of the law, which shall be no more, must be received by faith.

We belong to Jesus; therefore, everything that God promised Abraham, He’s promised to us.  God’s favor is there for you.  We’ve beened  redeemed from the curse of   poverty, confusion, sicknesses, madness, nervous breakdowns, adultry, rebellious children, debt, fear, and anxiety. We have been blessed in the city, in the country, our children, the offspring of our animals, in our food, our finances, traveling (coming in and going out), blessed in the work of our hands, blessed as the head (top dog) and not the tail (under dog).
