Set Free!

Luke 13:10 -13

I know this isn't our reading today, but I read this in addition to our reading and felt I was suppose to write about this writing. So, please take a moment here and read this passage.

Imagine this woman. A woman bent over for 18 long years. The sky was not in her sight walking along the paths. The beautiful clouds and stars were not a part of her walks. She only would only have the dirt of the path in her vision.

We all have days that we moan and groan about the things that we have to deal with throughout our day. When I read this story it spoke so loudly to my heart about all of us when I reached this verse ~ Woman, you are set free from your infirmity. Picture this little lady that had suffered for 18 years, suddenly to be straightened up and praising God. She was dancing and lifting her hands to the beautiful sky (at least in my imagination)!

What caught my attention was the words Woman, you are set free…So, place your name in front of you are set free….Debbie you are set free! Whether you are physically down or it is a choice that we have made ourselves Jesus will set you free. I am so moved that Jesus noticed this woman, just like He notices you and me. She may have come to see Him, but He made the move to her.

My prayer for you is that you will be set free from whatever is holding you down looking at the dirt rather than the beautiful stars and sky above. Lord, I pray that women will be set free by taking the step towards you and giving you whatever is holding them bent over in bondage. Thank you, Lord for setting me free. Amen


Sweet blessings,

Debbie, your message this morning is much needed by me and I am sure by many others. Hoping and praying that I spend the day looking up to The One who has set me free.

What I noticed in the scripture was after He called her out, He laid His hands on her. Oh, there is nothing like a touch from Jesus. He is the lifter of our heads, our deliverer, and our Redeemer. Rozi, you are set FREE!!
