📖: Isaiah 10:27
Confession: Psalm 2
“It shall come to pass in that day
That his burden will be taken away from your shoulder, And his yoke from your neck, And the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil” (Isaiah 10:27).
We all would prefer to live in comfort . As good as this is, we need to know there are times that we go through struggles in life. Some of these struggles are unbroken yokes and we experience different kinds of yoke in our individual lives.
A YOKE, is a spiritual bondage. It limits, controls, and holds our progress in life in captivity.
AN ANOINTING in the Old Testament was once reserved for kings, priest and prophets. In the New Testament, anointing is the Holy Spirit (Luke 4:18) given to us through Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection and Jesus’ anointing destroys and sets us free.
A yoke is a spiritual difficulty that’s places limitations on one’s progress in life. God can place a yoke on one’s life as in the case of Cain (Genesis 4:11-12). A parental yoke can be placed upon someone like the yoke placed upon Esau by his father Isaac, (Genesis 27:38-40). It can be hereditary in ones foundation, programmed into ones life by evil powers, or it can be self inflected, when Saul disobeyed God (1 Samuel 15:22-23). These yokes hinders one’s progress in life, and it must be broken.
As Christians, the anointing of the Holy Spirit breaks us free from any yoke of captivity and sets us free (Luke 4:18). Through the help of the Holy Spirit, the yoke can only be broken using the Blood of Jesus (Revelation 12:11), effectively praise and worship, prayer and meditate on God’s Word day and night. Some stubborn yokes cannot be completely broken, unless through fasting, prayers, deliverance. Sometimes, deliverance may have to be done more than once, before the yoke is completely destroyed. We must not give up until the yoke is broken and our heaven is open.
Matthew 11:29 says “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls”. Jesus’ yoke is an assurance of eternal life, and He will give us rest on every side. Psalm 92:10 says “You have exalted my horn like that of a wild ox; fine oils have been poured on me”. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, whose death, burial, and resurrection gave us victory over the enemy. For those yet to surrender their lives to Jesus, this is not negotiable, do so now, tomorrow might be too late! DO IT NOW!
PRAY THIS; in the name of Jesus, I repent of my sins, come into my heart and I will make You my Lord and Saviour. Stay connected! Stay focused! Have a blessed day. Shalom!!!
