Running with Jesus


Luke 13:10-13 And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath. 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.  And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity. And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.

     Now did you hear that, she praised God! How many around us are bent over double for 18 years spiritually! We walk around never able to look up because of some spiritual infirmity caused by an evil spirit! I know you are out there filled with fears, anxiety, guilt, shame, and you can hardly function. Satan wants to keep us bent over and unable to function. Notice when Jesus saw her he called her over. Why not let Jesus call you over this morning and let him touch you? I walked bent over for years until I got that call to come over. 

     Bent over at my dining room table reading God's Word I felt my Master’s hand and reached out and He touched me. As we study God’s Word He can touch any infirmity we have and experience in this life. Daily touches He gives us and enables us to stand up straight and go on.

     We must respond to His call to come. What if she had not? It may have been a struggle to walk over to get to Him, but she did. It may be a struggle to go to Him. It may be a struggle to let things go! I can tell you as soon as you go when He calls and let all the chains go the sooner your healing will come! Don't delay run to Him and continue to run with Him! He is our Healer!


 Father, thank You for always being right there and for helping me be able to stand up straight when I want to bend from the weights of life. Thank You for letting my soul brush against the Words Your finger penned, touching me and making me whole! I am eternally grateful for You, my loving Father. Help that bent soul today hear Your call and feel Your touch. Then they too will be praising You! 


Tomorrow: God is like yeast permeating the world!
