Scripture:

Prov. 26:2
Like a flitting sparrow, like a flying swallow, So a curse without cause shall not alight.

Comment:

Many argue that Prov. 26:2 should be interpreted to mean that Christians will not suffer from curses, provided that they do not commit any graven sin. But the experience of many believers is that they have been affected by a curse.

Why do Christians suffer from curses?

Prov. 26:2 says that a curse “without cause” shall not alight. Therefore we need to find out the causes for a curse.

One reason for a curse is sin, and who is living a life totally free from sin?

1 John 1:8
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

In order for us not to open the door for curses to enter we need to recognize and quickly confess our sins before God.

1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Jesus gives us the authority over all the power of the enemy

Luke 10:19
Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

Jesus gives us the authority over all the power of the enemy. When we use that authority, Jesus promises us that nothing shall hurt us. However, what happens if we do not use the authority?

Prov. 26:2
Like a flitting sparrow, like a flying swallow, So a curse without cause shall not alight.

If we do not use the authority that Jesus has given us, i.e. if we don’t resist the enemy, we will not be protected from the curses. When we are disobedient to Jesus, we have to take the consequence. It’s time for us to repent and take spiritual warfare very seriously. Then there will be a protection from curses.
