Breaking Generational Weaknesses
Over the years I’ve heard it taught that as Christians we need to be set free from generational curses. I want to clarify the terminology used in this deliverance teaching.
Gal 3:10-13 declares that “Christ purchased our freedom from the curse of the Law by Himself becoming a curse for us, for it is written, cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree.”
Because of the crucifixion, Jesus became a curse for us, setting us free from the curse of the Law. So according to scripture we are not under a curse when we are in Christ. We are under grace and have total freedom from the Law and sin. Sin no longer has dominion over us.
This is important to know when referring to generational inherited weaknesses. Notice I call them weaknesses and not curses. You are not cursed. You are free in Christ.
But we do have something called the flesh. The NIV translates flesh as “sinful nature”. But this is a wrong interpretation. The flesh is very different than our inward nature. In Christ we are born again, new creations, with a brand new nature! We have a redeemed inward nature that desires God and righteousness. Our new inward nature does not desire sin. It’s our flesh that desires sin. You do not have two inward natures fighting against each other. You have one inward nature, a new nature! The flesh is found in our physical body. It is not your inward nature and identity. You are NOT your flesh. You are a new creation in Christ. This is your core identity.
This is why you can crucify your flesh and live from the power of your new nature in God and overcome all temptation and sin. Because of this new nature you are not cursed.
A generational curse is different from an inherited weakness. Generational curses are broken in Christ. But your flesh can have inherited weaknesses from your family line. For example, alcoholism can be an inherited weakness. Someone with this weakness in their flesh means they feel more temptation in that area than others who don’t have that weakness. But it doesn’t mean they have to be controlled by it. They just need to identify the weakness, be aware of it and bring it to the cross where it is deprived of power so it doesn’t control you.
You can weaken inherited faults by bringing them to the cross in prayer and receive the power of God’s grace to live above them in the Spirit.
Here’s another truth. When you are set free from the curse of the Law in Christ, it is replaced by blessing! With every curse broken by the blood of Jesus, you can now experience the blessing of God. You can also see God’s redemption come to your family line and see every curse that was there before salvation replaced by blessing for generations to come!
Some people complain about being born into a certain family. But could it be that God allowed you to be born into that family so that the blood of Jesus in your life can replace generational curses with generational blessings! Not just for you, but for future generations as well! From the moment Jesus enters your life, a blessing is released not only over you but over your blood line. You and your household will be saved! What a promise!
You can deal with inherited weakness through prayer, reading God’s word and learning to walk in the power of the Holy Spirit. You can experience the abundance of God’s blessings in your life and you can release those blessings to your family line!
Take a moment to decree this truth over yourself:
Father I confess all my sins to you. I ask you to forgive me all my sins and set me free from the evil one. May there be no darkness in me at all. I thank you God when I confess my sins you are faithful and just to forgive my sin and cleanse me of all unrighteousness. I decree that I am forgiven in Christ and cleansed from all darkness. I declare that Jesus became a curse for me so I am no longer cursed. I am blessed. I am under the grace and blessing of God. I receive Your power God to overcome all sin and temptation. I declare my blood line is blessed and highly favored by God. I crucify my flesh with all its passions and desires and I live in the Holy Spirit, full of grace and truth. I am blessed and not cursed. I receive every blessing in Christ Jesus!
