TODAY’S TOPIC: FREEDOM FROM PHYSICAL CAPTIVITY

READ: Luke 13:11-17 (KJV)
Open Heaven Devotional 13th May 2023 MESSAGE:
In Luke 11:21-22, the Bible says that when a strong man keeps his goods, they remain safe, but when a person stronger than he comes, the latter will overpower him. Jesus Christ is the stronger One. He is stronger than the strongest.
Our Bible reading for today tells the story of a woman who had been battling an ailment for 18 years. No matter how hard she tried, she could not stand upright because her problem wasn’t physical but spiritual. It was reported that she had the spirit of infirmity. When He rebuked the spirit, in an instant, for the first time in 18 years, she stood upright.
There are many diseases that the best of doctors cannot handle. This is because the source of most of them is spiritual and even the best machines cannot detect the presence of a demon. When you cannot locate the source of the problem, finding the solution becomes difficult. When you hear that there is a strange sickness that cannot be diagnosed or cured, then you know immediately that it is a spiritual problem. If you are being troubled by any spirit of infirmity, you will be set free today, in Jesus’ name.
There is another kind of physical captivity that can come from birth. Some people are born with diseases that cannot be cured but only managed. When someone is born with asthma or sickle cell disease for example, the doctors only have medication to manage it. However, I know that the One who created everyone can create new body parts for those who need them. In Mark 10:43-52, Bartimaeus – a blind man, met Jesus one day and got new eyes. I am believing God for you that, whichever body part needs a replacement in your body will indeed be replaced, in Jesus’ name.
There was this very wealthy woman who vomited whatever she ate. She went to doctors around the world but nothing they tried worked. As she arrived for a programme in the RCCG, she heard me say, “Let somebody shout halleluyah”. She opened her mouth to shout halleluyah and a worm jumped out. From that moment on she was whole. God can heal you of sicknesses that the doctors are helpless about, if you can touch Him with your praise today.
Father, please uproot every thing You have not planted in me, in Jesus’ name.
