Topic: STAND STRAIGHT
Read: Luke 13:10-13
Luke 13:10-13 Now Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath.
And there was a woman there who for eighteen years had had an infirmity caused by a spirit (a demon of sickness). She was bent completely forward and utterly unable to straighten herself up or to look upward.
And when Jesus saw her, He called [her to Him] and said to her, Woman, you are released from your infirmity!
Then He laid [His] hands on her, and instantly she was made straight, and she recognized and thanked and praised God
Then He laid [His] hands on her, and instantly she was made straight, and she recognized and thanked and praised God. (Luke 13v13)
Sicknesses like sins have turned many people into a shadow of what they are ment to be. The world is full of many bent-over lives; many people that live, are just alive but not truly fulfilled, as desired. Countless lives have cramped, crippled and weighed down in guilt and shame due to many untold horrors. The healing of this unnamed sickly bent over woman speaks volume about how God wants us to have life, and live, abundantly. Only the divine can deliver anyone on the such demonic operation of 12 years. No one can truly and permanently fix such appallingly twisted and deformed life, expect God. You shall stand straight once again, no matter how bendable your life, or situation is.
Could there be a kinder and sweeter word than, Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity? Though the power that profits from these bents and curves of life never wants to see the victims break free from their subservience (Lk.13v14), the woman stood straight at the command of her Creator.
That the ruler (president) of the synagogue burst out in anger and directed his indignation against the healed and not to Jesus, the Great Healer, is surprising! It is high time you stood up straight at the command of Jesus Christ, no matter whose horse (pride and position)is gored! Whatever you are not ready to confront will continually master you. Demonic sicknesses defy all forms of herbal treatments and orthodox medicine. Only God in Christ through faith in His healing power delivers their preys.
Set yourself out today against all bent-over situations-sicknesses, sins, bad habits, evil thoughts, wrongful associations, etc. Come out from among them (2 Cor.6v17), and stand straight. It is time to own back your life. That woman stood straight,rejoicing in the Lord, You can, if you determine. Listen to the unstoppable voice of God, saying you are loosed in Jesus name.
1. In Jesus name, I receive this day my deliverance from every evil bent-over situation.
2. Devil, I terminate every of your operation in and on my life in Jesus name.
3. Pray for the handicap that God should visit them with His healing and sustaining Power, now.
