Prepare my heart, Holy Spirit, for the message to come about the yokes which are unholy, the ones that keep me in bondage. King David said, “The LORD opens the eyes of the blind; The LORD raises up those who are bowed down; The LORD loves the righteous.” Psalm 146:8 So, touch my blindness. I am bowed low before You. Prepare me to receive Your Word and understand it. Give me the grace to respond in obedience as I I take up Your yoke and shun all the counterfeits.
Let me see the beauty of Your heart so that I’m overwhelmed by Your love for me. That You, O Lord, would stoop to offer me a yoke which binds me to You is too wonderful to fathom. Who am I that You would consider me? And yet, You have drawn me to You with cords of love. The cords – a yoke – are they not one in the same? I am captive to Your love.
In Jesus name, Amen
