  TOPIC: NEW EXPERIENCE Read: Luke 13:10-1710 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 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, “Hypocrite! b 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?”17 And when He said these things, all His adversaries were put to shame; and all the multitude rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by Him.   MEMORISE: When the LORD brought back the captivity of Zion, We were like those who dream. (Psalms 126:1). EXPOSITIONIt is the desire of every man to have a pleasant new experience. The experience of a new birth-salvation, of a new job, a new joy, etc., Why? Man's want is always insatiable. He will want something different from what He used to - a new taste. New experience can be sweet or bitter, but the former is the desire of man. Jabez, dishonorable man, experience shame, pain, reproach, etc., but his new experience of God of Israel earned him the "honoured". Any pleasant, new experience desires by man, is only guaranteed in Him. His thought towards all is good and this can't be aborted with our cooperation. Do you have pains? Are you sick? Do you experience disappointment? The Scripture says: by His stripes: you are healed. He took away infirmities. It has never been said of Him to have disappointed anyone. He who believes in Him, shall never be put to shame says the Scripture. God promised that the desire of Egypt is not to be fulfilled on you. Things unexpectedly turned sour for Job, yet God gave him an experience that was more glorious than the one he ever had. Christians can have new experience as Jabez, if only they will do what He did. He approached God and made his request known to Him in prayers. Prayer is an opportunity available to us, but to ask and receive, we need to be right with Him. But, He answered and said 'It is not good to take the children bread and throw it to the little dogs' Matt.15:26. Be bold in your approach; be precise and specific in your request. He can't deny His children, if you are one of them as they ask for things in line with His purpose for them (1 Jn.5v14). PRAYER POINTS1. Pray that God will give you a new experience that will cause you to smile, laugh and sing songs of praises to God.2. Pray for God's grace and strength for those that are having unpleasant experiences in their home, family, marriage, business, offices, etc.3. Pray for the missionaries in their various fields that the mighty hands of God will see them through and give them a safe landing. EXTRA READING FOR TODAY:2 Chronicles 11:13 - 14:14, Acts 5:24 - 6:3 Author: CAC WorldwideRemain blessed!
