Activate The Promise

‘Then should not this woman, a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has kept bound for eighteen long years, be set free on the Sabbath day from what bound her?”’
– Luke 13:16 | NIV

The complete account about the healing of a certain crippled woman as documented in Luke 13: 10-17 showed certain facts:

1. She was a covenant descendant of Abraham yet under demonic affliction.

2. She needed to be called by the Lord to come into her healing meaning that if she stayed away from the Lord, the sickness would have continued.

3. Hands were laid on her to be delivered and healed.

The lesson in this account remains the need for every born-again child of God to aspire for divine intervention to secure their complete freedom from sickness and/or any form of affliction.

Though the blessing of Abraham remains a covenant promise (Gal.3:14- that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.), it is the responsibility of each of us to go to the Lord for an activation of the promise given.

Personal, corporate prayer and laying on of hands of men of proven spiritual positions will guarantee this. The scripture enjoins us to “Seek the Lord while He may be found”.

James 5:14,15 encourages anyone needing healing to go to the church leadership for a prayer of faith with hands laid on him to be healed of the sickness.

It’s time to seek out the Lord! It’s time to claim and activate all that God has promised.


In Jesus Name I declare I claim and take back my healing, wellness, and  all blessings that God promised me in Christ Jesus through the covenant in His redeeming Blood. The blessings of Abraham are mine. The blessings of the covenant are active in my life to the glory of God. Amen.
