God blesses and curses in the OT. It says this in Deuteronomy.
The Bible teach us that God is good and that He is love. So it is not in His character to curse us. When and why are we being cursed then? It is when we open the doors and sin enters our lives, example:
1)Adam and Eve opened the door when they ate of the fruit and a curse was the consequence
2)David opened the door when he slept with another man's wife and a curse was the consequence
3)Samson opened the door when he told Delilah about his secret and a curse was the consequence
We can go on and on but never in the word do we see God walking up to a person and say "curse" without a reason. It is not His character. So when we open doors we will get the curses from God. Yes, we can repent and the blood of Jesus can clean all but we all have open doors for curses in our lives.
We are blessed when we are in covenant with God, but cursed when we sin and open doors in our lives. Hope this helps somebody in their journey with Abba Father.
