If God blesses us, doesn’t that mean he curses us too?

If you are willing and obedient,
    you will eat the good things of the land;
but if you resist and rebel,
    you will be devoured by the sword.”
For the mouth of the Lord has spoken. Isaiah 1:19-20
            Yes.  God can choose to withhold his blessings (which feels like a curse) or actually affect the outcome to cause damage.  He’s God.  He can do what he wants.  His goal, though, is obedience.  He wants to change the behavior and get the attention of the ones he curses so that they remember he is God.
