Luke 13:10 “And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath.”

Luke 13:11 “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.”

…From yesterday…

Psalms 4:2 “O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame? how long will ye love vanity, and seek after leasing? Selah.”

David cried out here challenging the people who have forced his head to bow. He recognised the fact that men can also force others to bow. In life, you will always come across these type of people and must therefore be weary of them.

Another reason why men’s head are bowed is personal errors or mistakes.

2Samuel 13:13 “And I, whither shall I cause my shame to go? and as for thee, thou shalt be as one of the fools in Israel. Now therefore, I pray thee, speak unto the king; for he will not withhold me from thee.”

Psalms 69:19 “Thou hast known my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonour: mine adversaries are all before thee.”

Some people are bowed double due to their own fault. David made some mistakes that brought him shame and reproach as well.

But, no matter what has caused you shame, we have a God who specialises in lifting men up! Jesus met the woman and made her whole.

Psalms 3:3 “But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.”

Psalms 145:14 “The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down.”

Psalms 146:8 “The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind: the LORD raiseth them that are bowed down: the LORD loveth the righteous:”

Friend, it took just an encounter with Jesus for this woman’s head to be lifted. All shame departed and she stood erect and confident.

I pray for you, your head will be lifted today in Jesus name. No more shame and reproach in your life. Every demonic force keeping you down loses its hold over you today in Jesus name. It’s a new day for you!
