I’ve heard some people talk about generational curses like they talk about their pets. “This runs in our family” or “We’ve always been hot tempered because our great grandfather killed someone”. Listen, only two places in the Old Testament speak of the consequences of the sins of an evil rebellious nation being felt by future generations. Whole books have been written about how that’s supposed to mean your family history has you under a curse and how to do certain things to break that curse. Oh dear God Almighty (face palm). Listen to me. It doesn’t matter if every other woman in your family died from cancer and every other man in your family was an alcoholic. If you are a born again child of God, you are as redeemed from each and every curse of the law, every sin and it’s result, just as if neither you nor anyone in your family had ever sinned or known a sick day in your lives. ”Well, this does run in our family...” Here’s what that’s about. The enemy uses patterns to attack you in areas where you are more likely to accept it. There’s more heart disease where people are less resistant to the idea of heart disease. There’s more likelihood that you will accept that seed of fear. I don’t care what’s in your family’s DNA. Biology wasn’t created to hand out death sentences. Do you think you’re any more saved just because your grandparents went to church? This generational curse in the body of Christ nonsense is just that - another excuse for God’s people to live as less than who they are. It’s a lie. Don’t accept it. Galatians 3:13
