Sometimes when life treats us very harshly we tend to think that things will never change, but today I come bearing good news for you; do not allow you circumstance to dictate your destiny. The fact that you are suffering today does not mean that you will never be successful. I want to declare to you that if you are a Christian, then you are blessed and no one can change that, your future is bright and your tomorrow is better than today
Genesis 12:3 And I will bless them that bless you, and curse him that curses you: and in you shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Numbers 23:19-20 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: has he said, and shall he not do it? Or has he spoken, and shall he not make it good? Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he has blessed; and I cannot reverse it.
Nehemiah 13:2 Because they met not the children of Israel with bread and with water, but hired Balaam against them, that he should curse them: however our God turned the curse into a blessing.
