You Are Too Blessed to Be Cursed

Number 22:12 (NIV)
But God said to Balaam, "Do not go with them. You must not put a curse on those people, because they are blessed."

Number 23:7-8, 18-23 (NIV)
Then Balaam uttered his oracle:
"Balak brought me from Aram, the king of Moab from the eastern mountains. 'Come, ' he said, 'curse Jacob for me; come, denounce Israel.' How can I curse those whom God has not cursed? How can I denounce those whom the Lord has not denounced? 

Then he uttered his oracle:
"Arise, Balak, and listen; hear me, son of Zippor. God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? I have received a command to bless: he has blessed, I cannot change it.
"No misfortune is seen in Jacob, no misery observed in Israel. The Lord their God is with them. God brought them out of Egypt; they have the strength of a wild ox. There is no sorcery against Jacob, no divination against Israel. It will now be said of Jacob and of Israel, 'See what God has done!'  

My last post was about the hedge of God over the life of Job, and it was a comforting revelation for me to know that over my life as a child of God satan has and knows that he has his boundaries when it comes to my case. I am so very positive that it is exactly the same for all true Christians who have been bought over by the blood of Jesus.
We are all seeds of Abraham by virtue of the our believing and receiving of Jesus as our Lord as we have learnt in Galataians 3:26-29, so what we are reading in the passages above is actually not a thing limited to the Israelites of old, but that this is a true fact for all the true sons and daughters of God. 
The very comforting truth is that concerning your blessings and protection God is not in the business of changing His mind. If there is any impossibility in existence, it is the fact that you cannot be cursed. Never mind the challenges and trials you are facing. They can be very uncomfortable I agree, even Hebrews 12:4-11, tells us that God's discipline and training are painful at the time we are going through them, but they are there to train us and leave. But that any authority, principality or power under heaven can curse you, that is an impossible thing. No-one has the ability to upturn what God has established. It is a fact that you are blessed and cannot be cursed by virtue of your right as a child of God through your faith in Jesus. 
Principalities may try, but the truth is that there is no sorcery against your life, there is no divination against your destiny and no-one can curse you when the Lord has delighted in you to bless you. When you life is well rooted in Christ then the next thing is to carry-on in the obedience to God's commands with the boldness that as a child of God your life is firmly secured in Christ. The Lord has not given us the spirit of fear, but of boldness, of power and of love. You are indeed to blessed to be cursed.
