Yesterday, during worship, I had an encounter with God that shook me.
Literally & figuratively.
I have a few physical issues that have been bothering me, some of them long years of discomfort.
But i had a sense in that split second that although my physical issues are a big deal to me, there was something i needed to be set free from in my spirit. A foothold the enemy had been clinging onto, holding me back.
So when the call came to approach His throne and seek what He had for us in that moment, on that day- I answered, and obeyed His prompting.
I don’t remember much of what was spoken over me, because I had a warm but not fiery heat hit from the top of my head to the soles of my feet, and a weight of awesomeness fall. Its pretty hard to describe, but my senses were completely awakened and captivated by Him. All i wanted to do was to worship in His Presence with every fibre of my being.
What my mind recalls of what was spoken over me? The very answer to what my spirit had been longing for, but I had not known i needed so desperately until i heard His declaration:
The anointing is soaking in to cover my all, from the top of my head to the bottoms of my feet.
The yoke of slavery is broken.
Freedom of body, freedom of mind, freedom of spirit.
Nothing missing, nothing broken.
I am no longer under the heavy yoke of the enemy, but am one with my God, moving forward together in the freedom He paid so dearly to gain for us, for me.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11:30 (ESV)
I felt something come to life within me after that time of worship.
I believe out of His great love, He can do the same for each of us.
Its time to wipe the yolk of the enemy off of our face, break free from his yoke, and stand firm in the position and calling God has for us.
No more shame, no more bondage, no more addiction, no more false guilt, no more hiding.
I want all He has for me.
He wants the same for us.
I believe inside each of us is that same longing, desire to be made whole.
When we stand at His side fully submitted to Him, the enemy will not be able to regain his footing in our lives.
The yokes he tried to place upon us will remain on his shoulders.
For we know Who wins in the end.
The yolk’s on him.
