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? (Luke 13:16 KJV)

Who you are related to and whose child you are matters. Because of this, you ought to know that as a child of Abraham, there are benefits that accrue to you. There will be those who oppose your accessing these benefits but remain resolute in your faith.

For eighteen years, this woman could not stand. She was bent double and suffered from this disabling infirmity. When Jesus saw her, he was moved with compassion and spoke to her, “Woman thou art loosed from your infirmity.” When he laid hands on her she was made whole. It is surprising that there were people who were not pleased at all by the setting free of this woman. They had to look for a reason as to why Jesus should not have performed this miracle.

Healing is bread for the children of Abraham. Wealth is a benefit for the sons and daughters of Abraham. Being born again qualifies you for these blessings. Today, arise against every contenting word trying to oppose your access to your benefits. Psalms 103:2 records, “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:” There are benefits that are available for you as a child of GOD!

I pray for you today, that you awaken to the blessings and benefits that accrue to you. I pray that your ears be deaf to every voice that wants to stop your access to these. I rebuke every spirit of infirmity that kept you limited.

Declare this,

I am a son of Abraham. I am loosed from any infirmity the devil was afflicting me with. I speak freedom from the crown of my head to my toes.
