No curses can effectively be spoken over the people of God, because He has blessed them. We also do not curse, but only bless others. The only power a curse over you has is when you become afraid and believe therein. If the enemy can get us to compromise on the Word of God however, we will curse ourselves. You can rob yourself of the timing and blessing of God in your life by having an offended heart, trapping yourself by the bait of satan which is offence, and shutting the windows of heaven. Often when you got offended, you actually were minutes away from receiving your breakthrough. In most instances Christians do not realize that they are committing the sin of offence, because of self-justification i.e. “you hurt my feelings”. God will cause someone to unintentionally (or intentionally) stomp all over your offended feelings to get your heart right, because He wants to rescue you – it is the process of sanctification. Your ability to not be offended or not to give offence is the slide rule for your maturity in love. Offence is the soul-killer, spiritual death in action, and attractive to the demonic realm. Offence leads to betrayal by shutting off the life flow of grace and blessing which should be between the members of the body and that betrayal leads to hatred or a total lack of love. When you are unrelentingly offended with someone you go into judgment and maintain an illegitimate right to unforgiveness which will result in you becoming that which you have judged. Forgive and you will be forgiven.
