He went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he set him on his own animal and brought him to an inn and took care of him. For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord , plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice.
No one comes to the Father except through me. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. You cannot serve God and money. The blessing of the Lord makes rich, and he adds no sorrow with it. A Psalm of David. The earth is the Lord 's and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein,.
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord , and he will repay him for his deed. Even the sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, at your altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God.
Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul. Therefore let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, and of instruction about washings, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment.
And this we will do if God permits. For it is impossible, in the case of those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have shared in the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils.
It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs. And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God, which he promised beforehand through his prophets in the holy Scriptures, concerning his Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh and was declared to be the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord, through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of his name among all the nations, For he is like one who is inwardly calculating.
Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your produce; then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me,.
Arise, go to Paddan-aram to the house of Bethuel your mother's father, and take as your wife from there one of the daughters of Laban your mother's brother. God Almighty bless you and make you fruitful and multiply you, that you may become a company of peoples. May he give the blessing of Abraham to you and to your offspring with you, that you may take possession of the land of your sojournings that God gave to Abraham!
Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born? Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap.
For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you. Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. No weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall confute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their vindication from me, declares the Lord. Like a sparrow in its flitting, like a swallow in its flying, a curse that is causeless does not alight.
I passed by the field of a sluggard, by the vineyard of a man lacking sense, and behold, it was all overgrown with thorns; the ground was covered with nettles, and its stone wall was broken down. Then I saw and considered it; I looked and received instruction. A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, and poverty will come upon you like a robber, and want like an armed man.
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, In the days when the judges ruled there was a famine in the land, and a man of Bethlehem in Judah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he and his wife and his two sons. The name of the man was Elimelech and the name of his wife Naomi, and the names of his two sons were Mahlon and Chilion.
They were Ephrathites from Bethlehem in Judah. They went into the country of Moab and remained there. But Elimelech, the husband of Naomi, died, and she was left with her two sons. These took Moabite wives; the name of the one was Orpah and the name of the other Ruth.
They lived there about ten years, and both Mahlon and Chilion died, so that the woman was left without her two sons and her husband. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God. Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your ground and the fruit of your cattle, the increase of your herds and the young of your flock.
Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl. From every man whose heart moves him you shall receive the contribution for me. And this is the contribution that you shall receive from them: gold, silver, and bronze, blue and purple and scarlet yarns and fine twined linen, goats' hair, tanned rams' skins, goatskins, acacia wood, And of all that you give me I will give a full tenth to you.
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers, as is right, because your faith is growing abundantly, and the love of every one of you for one another is increasing.
Therefore we ourselves boast about you in the churches of God for your steadfastness and faith in all your persecutions and in the afflictions that you are enduring. This is evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be considered worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are also suffering— And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, in Aramaic called Bethesda, which has five roofed colonnades. In a world throwing us curveballs …keep us alert and focused on You at all times. Jesus, You came for all of us, and You chose us. Forgive us for our sins and soften our hearts to Your Word. We believe in You, Jesus.
Thank You for embracing us when we thought curses and sins would surely kill us. Continue to rescue us from the pain of this world. Savior, God. We love you. Protect us from the tendencies and strongholds of sin we struggle with. Help us to name them, look at them head-on, and do the work to turn from them to You. We lift the burden and weight of them up to You.
We know You are able to crush our enemy and sustain us through unbearable circumstances. The temporary pain of this world will one day pass, but Jesus, our Savior, You reign forever. Humbled are we to call you Savior, Lord, and friend. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. Generational curses are inherited from behaviors that trickle down one generation after another, or they can be habits and strongholds we ourselves fall into and struggle to stumble out of.
Pornography, alcoholism, eating disorders, drug addiction, sexual abuse, adultery. All of these categorically sinful habits can be considered generational curses. Less taboo generational habits can be just as dangerous and entrapping. Laziness, gossip, self-pity, condemnation and criticism, stubbornness, and overspending can be the damaging roots of sinful strongholds. A wise mentor once advised me, if I was acutely bothered by a noticeable behavior in someone else, it was most likely because I struggled with a tinge of it …or possibly sat fully entangled in it ….
God alerts us in many ways! We are not to blame our parents or grandparents for our behaviors. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. Jesus has broken every curse on the cross. Our cursed chains are snapped the minute we hand them over to Him. The power of the cross sets us free from the curse of sin that is death.
Christ came for all, and all have the opportunity to embrace freedom in Him. If we are in Christ, every curse has already been broken. There will always be consequences for sin and disobedience. God is good, all the time. All the time, God is good. A good father disciplines His children.
So does our Father lovingly guide us, despite the painful onslaught of our bad and disobedient decisions. The child will not share the guilt of the parent, nor will the parent share the guilt of the child. The righteousness of the righteous will be credited to them, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against them. Jesus is our everything. The Spirit is faithful to nudge and reminds us, daily, we are loved. Love drives out all generational curses.
Our earthly families will frustrate and fail us because we are all imperfect. But God has adopted us into His family. Jesus has called us friends, and the Living God lives in us. Generational curses have no power over the One True King.

Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Among the best ways to prevent a spirit of fear from afflicting us is through prayer —. In the name of Jesus Christ, I break all assignments of the Devil that were keeping them from giving me monetary blessings. Get out of them now, unclean spirits.
