No misfortune is in sight for Jacob; no trouble is in store for Israel. For the Lord their God is with them; he has been proclaimed their king. … No curse can touch Jacob; no sorcery has any power against Israel.
—Numbers 23:21, 23 (NLT)
The Word of God reveals that God has blessed His people with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. It also teaches us that because of our place in Christ Jesus, all the blessings of Abraham (and Israel) belong to us. So now that God has blessed you, no one can curse what God has blessed—meaning you! Hear this: No matter what you are facing today, no matter what seemingly impossible situation is staring you in the face or lurking over your shoulder, God has said you are blessed. Therefore, you can stand strong in the knowledge that no misfortune is in sight for you and no curse can touch you! You see, a major part of our blessing in God is our complete and total redemption from the curse of the law (Galatians 3:13)! That curse entails every type of evil known to humankind, and God says we’re free from it all!
What’s more, as we are abiding in Him, the Word of God promises that we are actually inaccessible to all the works of darkness (Psalm 91:8). Now wouldn’t you agree that it’s pretty difficult to oppress someone when you can’t even find them? So while the entire world is singing doom and gloom, the people of God are to be rejoicing and counting their blessings.
You may be thinking, That’s easy for you to say, Dawn, but you don’t know what’s going on in my life. You’re right, I don’t know what’s going on in your life, but I know that God’s Word is truth and that when you decide to make His Word the final authority in your life—over the challenges, pressures, symptoms, and everything else that would tempt you to lose sight of your status as the blessed—then you will find true and lasting comfort and victory.
In the foregoing passage, we read that a hired gun was actually sent to curse God’s chosen people—to no avail. Every time he opened his mouth to curse them, blessings would come spouting out! He even prophesied that no misfortune or curse would come near them! That’s how swiftly and matter-of-factly God moves in the lives of His people to intercept any and every evil scheme plotted against them. The end result every time is: mission impossible. No weapon formed against you shall prosper. God is your helper! He is your shield! And if God be for you, who can be against you?
This is the mindset and viewpoint by which we must live our lives if we dare to walk in all the blessings that God has made available to us. So, stand up boldly, declare that you are curse-free, and allow the hand of God to turn your troubles into triumphs! He’ll surely do it because, after all, you’re untouchable in Him.
I am blessed of the Lord; therefore, I cannot be cursed!
