“On What He Said Today” Series, #2–Proverbs 26:2

Phyllis Beveridge Nissila

Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow,
                              an undeserved curse does not come to rest.                                          Proverbs 26:2, NIV

In the world this day where people plot continuously in the halls of hatred and violence, prayerfully apply Proverbs 2:26 as you feel so led. Keep in mind also the following verses for encouragement and support:

You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world (1 John 4:4).

The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective (James 5:16).

… so that no one may boast in His presence. It is because of Him that you  are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God: our righteousness, holiness, and redemption (1 Corinthians 1: 29-30). (Emphasis added.)

For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back (“restrains”) will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way (2 Thessalonians 2:6).  Many believe this restrainer is the Holy Spirit who abides in believers; the lawless one is Satan and his minions who will rule as the Anti-Christ et al, in the prophetic Tribulation period.

I am watching over My word to perform it (Jeremiah 1:12, NASB).

In short: discern who might be “cursing” whom today and exercise your power of prayer against the effort.
