Break the Yoke
“Break the Yoke” – I Want God to break the yoke!
I am not at ease, I am perplexed, so I pray, “Dear God, Break the yoke.” You said in Matthew 11: 28-30, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light;” “So, Dear God, break the yoke.”
Are you listening?
Is He listening to my plea? I understand what David meant, “Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help,” (Psalms 35:2). This yoke feels like a hard device, a hard place, across my shoulders. It feels as though the very essence of carrying it, is breaking my inner parts. This yoke makes my stance awkward. I feel unbalance.
Why should I bear the yoke?
“Lord, how long will you look on my situation?”
I just read that that the Lord redeems the soul of his servants and none of them that trust in Him are condemned. Why do I feel the burden of this yoke? When will I feel at ease? I am searching for Your answer.
Reflect! Look from where you have just walked out of!
“The Lord is nigh!”
God will break the yoke! So, I pray… “Thank You!”
I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul shall make its boast in the Lord;
The humble shall hear of it and be glad.
3 Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
And let us exalt His name together.
4 I sought the Lord, and He heard me,
And delivered me from all my fears.
5 They looked to Him and were radiant,
And their faces were not ashamed.
6 This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard him,
And saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him,
And delivers them.
The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry (Psalms 34: 1-7;15 NKJV)
In Your Wait… What will you do?
