TODAY’S TEXT: ‘And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing’
TODAY’S WORD: THE SUPPLY OF THE SPIRIT DESTROYS THE YOKE OF LIFE
Whatever is yet to submit in our life is yet to experience the power of God!
Psalm 66:3. “Say unto God, How terrible thou art in thy works! Through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee."
Meaning that the exercise or the supply of the Spirit is what enforces the dominion of the saints. When the Spirit is supplied the devil naturally submits! This was the same prophetic vision that David saw of the destiny of the church in Psalm 110:1-3.
‘The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. 2 The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. 3 Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.
The rod of God’s power is what enforces the submission of his enemies and that rod of strength will be operated by his church in the days of his power. The day of his power is what Joel foretold in Joel 2:28-32 and now we are right in the centre of the day of His power. The Spirit of God is already here; the more we enjoyed its supply the more we dominate our world!
Today whatever has limited you, restrict you, inhibit you will be broken now! Every yoke on you, spiritual, emotional, physical, that has held you and slow you down will be destroyed now!
"And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing"
For over 20 years or so, a member of one of the churches we were privileged to pastor, His name Power, in Akwa Ibom, Nigeria had been on the same spot, restricted, limited to a life without expression and without result because mysteriously one day he could not just find his certificate, it just disappeared without trace! A certificate isn’t what you keep in just any other place; we all know these are the sorts of document are kept in special places. Somehow in the case of Power, it disappeared. With the disappearance of the certificate Power became powerless as he could not get job or get anything going in his life.
We had an anointing service one Thursday evening and there was a mighty supply of the Spirit. Unknown to Power, one of his friends who had lived at close quarters with him took the certificate and the friend now resided in another city far away off. But once Power was empowered by the supply of the Spirit, the friend became restless where he was. Overnight he could not sleep; he was troubled by some appearances that asked him to return the certificate the following day! He had to comply urgently! When Power woke up the following day after the service, few hours after he saw his long-time friend who came returning his certificate and begging for forgiveness!
From that moment on, the limit on Power’s life was removed! A new vista of life opened up to him and he began to ride in wealth and prosperity! The radical change in Power’s life brought many to the church and the kingdom!
The supply of the Spirit destroys the yoke of life that has been there for years! Whatever yokes has limited your life is removed off your life today. All you need is a supply of the Spirit! Pray in the Spirit today for that supply!
TODAY’S PRAYER: Lord by the supply of your Spirit I enforce my dominion over every wicked and elemental forces in the world. By the anointing I command yokes destroyed in my life, family, business, career, ministry and all that concerns me .I walk in dominion from henceforth
TODAY’S THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: The day of his power is what Joel foretold in Joel 2:28-32 and now we are right in the centre of the day of His power. The Spirit of God is already here; the more we enjoyed its supply the more we dominate our world!
