DAILY READINGS: 2 Kings 17:1-41; Jeremiah 51:1-24; 1 Timothy 1:1-20

A woman who had had a disabling spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not fully straighten herself. Luke 13:11

This woman’s testimony would focus on three things: one, she had a need; two, she had had this need for a long time; and three,she wanted this need taken care of. No doubt she had lost all sorts of opportunities—marriage, employment, a social life—but she remained diligent in her search for help. The seeking Saviour and the seeking sinner will always meet! Perhaps you have been in your sins for a long time; and, while things may seem hopeless, the Saviour is waiting to save you right now! —Craig Funston

He has called in love so constant; He has knocked so oft before; Yet your
heart’s door has not opened; now He comes and knocks once more.
