DAY 35: SET FREE PART 1 - The Chosen 40 Days with Jesus - "The Truth sets us Free” …
Good evening … Great is His faithfulness
DAY 35: SET FREE PART 1
A Spirit of Infirmity
10 Now He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. 11 And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent over and could in no way [a]raise herself up. 12 But when Jesus saw her, He called her to Him and said to her, “Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity.” 13 And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.
14 But the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath; and he said to the crowd, “There are six days on which men ought to work; therefore, come and be healed on them, and not on the Sabbath day.”
15 The Lord then answered him and said, [b]“Hypocrite! Does not each one of you on the Sabbath loose his ox or donkey from the stall, and lead it away to water it? 16 So ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound—think of it—for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath?”
THINK OF IT: From the commentary of the Orthodox Study Bible – The Fathers see this command as directing us to a spiritual meaning for the EIGHTEEN YEARS … As the Greek expression is literally translated “TEN AND EIGHT YEARS”, both St. Ambrose and Theophylact see ten as representing the Ten Commandments and eight as representing grace, for the day of Resurrection is often called the “EIGHTH DAY” … Humanity is lifted by faith in Christ, who fulfills both law and grace …
δέκα déka, dek'-ah; a primary number; ten: —(eight-)een, ten.

2. If Jesus showed up at your church and called you to Himself, what would He want to set you free from???
He would completely set me free from PTSD, but in a way, He has, and I love Him for helping it through this affliction … I pray and hope I never derail myself from His greatness and I always keep turning back to Him for the help and guidance I need to make it to the end and reach eternity …
3. What are some steps you can start taking to be freed from whatever vice has held you in bondage???
What has hold me right now is PTSD, and the anxiety it causes … See my video for further discussion into this question… I talked a great deal about how the Lord helped me to get off all those VA prescription medicines … I talked about how I have lost more than 80lbs and how the Lord led me to medical cannabis and now I’m a huge advocate for medical cannabis it truly helps with pain and anxiety … I also spoke on how it also helped me manage my COPD flare ups and my fibromyalgia flare ups… I’m not ashamed of this at all because I’m a man of God and God is with me , He understands when no one else does or when they want to judge me for no reason …
Take your voices to God, anything that’s got hold of your heart more than it should, and ask God to help free you from it …
Psalm 142 (143) – Part of this evening’s prayer focus …
“The Lord bless you and keep you; 25 The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; 26 The Lord [a]lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.” ’
