“And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity. And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.” Luke 13:12-13 (KJV)
Here Jesus performs a miracle while teaching in the synagogue on the sabbath. He heals a woman of an infirmity that had caused her to not be able to lift herself up. She had been bound by this disease for eighteen years, but Jesus loosed her and set her free. In one moment, she was stooped over and bound, and in the next, she was standing upright and glorifying God! Sickness binds. It causes someone to not be able to move about freely. Poverty and lack binds. It causes someone to not be able to meet the needs of their family and be the great blessing financially that they desire to be. Fear binds. It causes someone to not move forward into God’s purpose and plans for their life. These are all evil spirits that are sent by Satan to bind people and rob them of their quality of life. Many have been bound for years, but just as the power of Jesus’ words loosed the woman in the Bible, the power of God’s word can loose you today! You are a daughter of Abraham and a daughter of the King and you don’t have to live bound another day of your life! Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity, loosed from your fear, loosed from poverty, loosed from depression and whatever else has you bound!
Prayer: Father, thank You for loosing me from all bondage of the enemy! I am Your daughter and I declare I am free. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and use me to set others free by Your power and the authority You have given me. In Jesus name, amen.
