Are Generational Curses Real? What about Addiction?

Written by Laura E.

You bet your sweet bippy they are real and they can be broken by The Holy Spirit.

Yes we have the debate of nature vs nurture and it is valid as we are formed by BOTH.  Nature would be all the genes and hereditary factors that influence who we are—from our physical appearance to our personality characteristics.  Therefore “nature” also means generational curses especially I am referring to addiction.

How in the name of God do I stop sinning?

Its easy for pastures and others to condemn sin and then say “just stop” and get over it but how does a person change a habit that has advanced into near addiction?  It’s not easy but it can be done.  There are two main ways to change.  One is to get to an alter call in church and receive prayer after you confess the sin.  This exposes the secret and that is the first step to healing.   The truth will set your free in this instance.

You Have Not Because You Ask Not James 4:2

I want to point out the featured photo scripture should not say “be careful for nothing” that would be careless to be careful of nothing.  It’s either a crappy translation or its a word change.  But rather the message is don’t fear and worry about things.  Just ask your Father God who will provide for us more so even than we provide for our little children.  And surely we should ask God for that which we need if we are feeling it.  It is not a command but rather a suggestion and reassurance.

3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.

Faith in God means exerting the communication from one’s heart to get to know God better.  This includes asking for the things of faith and whatever else we believe we need.  Just like we would, as children ask our Loving Father for something we desire.  Isn’t this part of being “real”?  Is this not part of relationship skills?  Or maybe we are too proud and self sufficient to ask for anything.  Perhaps we are afraid the answer will be “no”.  Nevertheless relationships must include fellowship.  Lest we die and get taken up only to face a Creator who says to us “who are you?”
