One Sabbath, Jesus was teaching in a Jewish meeting place, and a woman was there who had been crippled by an evil spirit for eighteen years. She was completely bent over and could not straighten up. When Jesus saw the woman, he called her over and said, "You are now well." He placed his hands on her, and right away she stood up straight and praised God. The man in charge of the meeting place was angry because Jesus had healed someone on the Sabbath. So he said to the people, "Each week has six days when we can work. Come and be healed on one of those days, but not on the Sabbath." The Lord replied, "Are you trying to fool someone? Won't any one of you untie your ox or donkey and lead it out to drink on a Sabbath? This woman belongs to the family of Abraham, but Satan has kept her bound for eighteen years. Isn't it right to set her free on the Sabbath?" Jesus' words made his enemies ashamed. But everyone else in the crowd was happy about the wonderful things he was doing.
Luke 13: 10 - 17
Jesus said the woman in this story belonged to the family of God, but was crippled by Satan for many years.
We live in a world today where the Devil tries to bind up or even cripple those who follow Jesus. Every time you refuse to trust Jesus and doubt the Word that He has spoken, you are allowing Satan to bind you and keep you from walking in the freedom that Jesus gives to those who follow Him!
The only way to be free from the chains of doubt and fear is to come to Jesus and let Him touch you again! With the Hands of Jesus placed on your head and His arms wrapped around you, you will be restored to spiritual health and wholeness!
“Lord Jesus, touch me today again with the healing power that can only come from You, my Lord and my God! Praise Your Holy Name forever. Amen.”
