God makes a distinction between blessings and curses. Blessedness emanates from His favor out of obedience and curses from His wrath and out of disobedience. God expects full obedience and trust in Him and not trusting in idols or in the strength of man. His delight is in those that trust in Him and He directs His favor towards them but those that despise Him and deny Him His glory, He sets His face against them. May the Lord look towards us with favor as we set our hearts after Him, and turn away from the things He hates.
