DAUGHTER OF ABRAHAM Genesis 12:1-3
Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will show thee:
You must reach the point where it is the Lord whom you desire. Singleness of heart will bring about deliverance. Perhaps you have spent all your time and effort trying to prove yourself to someone who is gone. Maybe an old lover left you with scars. The person may be dead and buried, but you are still trying to win his approval. In this case, you are dedicated to worthless tasks. You are committed to things, unattainable goals, that will not satisfy. Christ must be your ambition. Luke 13:13b reads, “And immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.” Christ dealt with 18 years of torment in an instant. One moment with Jesus, and immediately she was well. For some things you don’t have time to recover gradually. The moment you get the truth, you are loosed. Immediately she recovered. Once you realize that you have been unleashed, you will feel a sudden change. When you come to Jesus, He will motivate you. You will see that other woman in you. You need to blossom and bring her forth. Notice the sixteenth verse of Luke 13. “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?” He called her, “a daughter of Abraham.” She may have been bent over, but she was still Abraham’s daughter. Don’t let your condition negate your position.
She was unleashed because of who her father was. It had little to do with who she was. The Bible doesn’t even mention her name. We will never know who she was until we reach Heaven. Although we don’t know who she was, we know whose she was. She was a daughter of Abraham.
PRAYER LINE: Father, thank You for the knowledge that when we come to Jesus, He will motivate us and heal us. (EDWJ)
Don’t let your condition negate your position.
