11 March 2024: PITFALLS OF IGNORANCE AROUND THE COVENANT (3) – Luke 13:11-16

God does not deal with people by the colour of their skin but by the covenant. From our text today, why did this woman have the spirit of infirmity in the first place? She was a daughter of Abraham. She had the covenant on her side. Her problem was IGNORANCE. As I have previously said, the problem of God’s people is not plenty of devils or the power of 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 found 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 sighted her and intervened in her matter, and this led to a serious argument with the ruler of the synagogue. Luke 13:16 says, “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? A daughter of Abraham! She was a covenant carrier. Her case was a divine obligation. This woman’s case is significantly different from that of Blind Bartimaeus. She did not have to call Jesus. Do you know your case also is on the obligation list in Heaven?

However, nothing of God works without knowledge and faith.

You can’t take a position that you don’t know belongs to you. You can’t have faith in what you don’t know.

PRAYER: I receive grace to understand the implication of what I carry in Christ. Amen.

Numbers 15:17-16:40, Mark 15:1-47, Psalm 54:1-7, Proverbs 11:5-6
