WHEN a curse is overtaking you it means it is getting there before you.
Curses come about because of disobedience.
Deuteronomy 28:15, “However, if you do not obey the Lord your God and do not carefully follow all His commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come upon you and overtake you.”
A curse overtaking you means that on the day of your marriage, the curse of broken marriage is already contending with you and has gone ahead of you on the altar.
The curse is waiting for you, it has gone ahead of you, such that whatever you do to save your marriage you will still be chased away.
Curses follow people
Curses follow people wherever they go and get there before them.
Verse 16, “you will be cursed in the city and cursed in the country,” means the curse is in you and wherever you go, the curse overtakes you and gets there ahead of you, waiting to destroy you.
“Some people have tried to fly abroad to other cities to get away from the cursed situations in their homes, but guess who is waiting for them at the airport in the foreign country.
The curse has overtaken them and is waiting for them on the other side!

Christians mistakenly think curses come from Satan, but according to Deuteronomy 28:20, curses come from God.
Worshipping other gods
It is God sending the curse because of worshiping other gods.
Deuteronomy 28: 20, “The Lord will send on you curses, confusion and rebuke in everything you put your hand to until you are destroyed and come to sudden ruin because of the evil you have done in forsaking him.”
Verse 27: The Lord will afflict you with boils of Egypt and with tumors, festering sores and the itch from which you cannot be cured.
Verse 28: The Lord will afflict you with madness, blindness and confusion of mind.
Curse in the bloodline
Unless the curse is broken- the person will not recover from that disease.
Most of the time we think it is the devil doing it, but it is a curse in the bloodline.
Curses are broken by turning to God in repentance.
Like Daniel, Ezra, Nehemiah, Shadrack, Meshack and Abednego, we turn to God when we notice the presence a curse in our lives.
Servants of God
The servants of God Daniel, Ezra, Nehemiah, Shadrack, Meshack and Abednego found themselves in Babylon like everyone else and they asked themselves how it had happened despite being righteous servants of God.
They found out that their forefathers sinned and turned to God asking for forgiveness.
When we pray and we don’t get answers, we mistakenly turn to wage warfare with Satan, but “he is not the one who sent the curses.”
The curse(s) overtake us because of our forefathers who worshipped other gods.
To break a curse we turn to God in repentance asking Him to forgive us for our own sins and the sins of the forefathers that provoked Him to send the curse.
