Luke 13:11 - And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself. Why did she have spirit of infirmity in the first place? The answer is IGNORANCE. The problem of God's people is not the Devil but lack of knowledge. She should not have had the spirit of infirmity in the first place. She could in no wise lift up herself, that is, she finds it difficult to do what should have been done normally. Whenever an individual is in a state like that, it means a demon is involved. Jesus after the encounter above sighted her and intervened in her matter, and this led to a serious argument among the rulers of the synagogue.
Luke 13:16 - And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day? Why did God move as far as this woman was concerned? She was a daughter of Abraham! She was a covenant carrier. Her case was a divine obligation. This woman's case is significantly different from Blind Bartimaeus'. She did not have to call Jesus. Do you know your case is also on the obligation list in Heaven?
However, nothing of God works without knowledge or faith. You can't take a position that you don't know belongs to you. You can't have faith for what you don't have knowledge of. AND OUGHT NOT THIS WOMAN is a COVENANT POSITION. What ought to be for you but it's not in place, let it come for you now in Jesus' name.
Mordecai said, I am a Jew, a seed of Abraham. Did it work for Mordecai? Then it must work for you as a spiritual Jew. It's time for somebody to claim his or her covenant status. Haman wanted to wipe out Mordecai and all the Jews, but he ended up dying. It is time for you to say to the wrong things in your life "ought not to be" and claim the plan of God for your life. Is there something you are agreeing with that is contrary to the covenant? You must change that today. God doesn't deal with you by the colour of your skin but by the covenant. God is not a RACIST, He is a GRACIST!!!
How did David conquer Goliath, by weapon or by covenant? Why do you complain, when you can change everything that ought not to be, by the covenant? Is this how it ought to be in your life at this age? Sitting repeatedly for the same exam, being a daughter/son of Abraham? Life is bypassing you, being a daughter/son of Abraham? Should the Devil be stamping a negative result on you?
When you become born again, you are not only bearing your physical father's surname but also, Abraham's. Take your place as Abraham's seed, like Mordecai did. Galatians 3:29 says, And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. You can be having normal results doing normal job or you can have divine results. Daniel, Meshach, Shadrach and Abednedgo sat for exams with the best of brains of all nations, and when they were tested, they were ten (10) times better. If that covenant is still working for physical Jews today, are you a spiritual Jew? Then, it will work for you.
God called Abraham, blessed and increased him. If you are Abraham's seed, this will be your experience this year!
