Deuteronomy 28:65-67 NKJV
And among those nations you shall find no rest, nor shall the sole of your foot have a resting place; but there the Lord will give you a trembling heart, failing eyes, and anguish of soul. Your life shall hang in doubt before you; you shall fear day and night, and have no assurance of life. In the morning you shall say, ‘Oh, that it were evening!’ And at evening you shall say, ‘Oh, that it were morning!’ because of the fear which terrifies your heart, and because of the sight which your eyes see.
A part of the curse of the law found in Deuteronomy 28 included a trembling heart, anguish of soul, continuous fear and worry and dread. For those under the curse, facing the day would be dreadful and dealing with the night would be bad. There would be constant torment due to fear dominating their lives. The opposite to this would be the result of the blessing. A calm heart and mind, freedom from worry and a pleasant attitude day and night would be the demeanor of the blessed people. They would be looking forward to the activities of each day. They would anticipate a pleasant rest at night after experiencing a productive day. This is what our lives should be like for Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law so that we might enjoy the blessing God gave to Abraham. (Galatians 3:13-14)
