“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 unbalanced.
“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.
