MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 15 December 2018 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Yoked Together
TOPIC: Yoked Together (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 15 December 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 2 Corinthians 6:14-17
MEMORY VERSE: “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” – Amos 3:3
A yoke is a device that is used to connect two bulls together for farming purpose. The yoke will not allow one to go beyond the other because it is placed on their necks to keep them at the same pace. The animals yoked together must walk at the same level and drag their burden, the plough, in order to satisfy the purpose for which the farmer yoked them together. The same is applicable to a believer who is connected to an unbeliever in an intimate relationship. The weight of sin of the unbeliever will drag the believer’s holy life backward because the believer may need to compromise if he or she intends to continue in the relationship.
Bimpe’s mother placed two pots on two different stoves. She poured half a glass of water into one of the pots and poured some oil into the other pot, leaving Bimpe to wonder. She had just told her mother about her decision to marry the love of her life and all her mother had decided to do was bring her to the kitchen. She watched as her mother allowed the water boil and the oil to heat up. “Can you see that they are both hot?” her mother asked. “Yes”, Bimpe answered, wondering what that had to do with anything. She however, nearly shouted when her mother poured the hot water into the hot oil. “Can I still use this oil to fry plantain at this point?” her mother asked. “No now” Bimpe replied, “You’ve wasted the whole time the oil used in heating up”.
There are many believers like Bimpe, who allow themselves to be consumed by the passion and interests they have. Passion and attraction may however bring you to the same temperature level, but it does not necessarily indicate that you are on the right course.
Getting married to someone who is not a believer will only dampen and waste you. Quite a number of Christians may not agree with this because the cloud and influence of technology and modern living has blinded many, but the word of God remains true. A believer should not become unequally yoked with an unbeliever in marriage. This is not only about good character, or respectable family background. Christ Jesus has to be the foundation of your relationship and this trumps good character, attitude and personality, family reputation, etc. Do not make the common but unacceptable mistake of deciding to get married first and hoping to convert your spouse afterwards. You must trust God to bring you your jewel of inestimable value in due time. Stay within the kingdom. “Two will only walk together if they agree”. You have to agree, believe and know Jesus.
CHRIST JESUS HAS TO BE THE FOUNDATION OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP AND THIS TRUMPS GOOD CHARACTER, ATTITUDE AND PERSONALITY.
May you walk with those who agree with God.
- Every power that is yoking me with the child of the devil, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Every yoke of darkness upon my life, break by fire, in the name of Jesus.
- Powers of my father’s house, yoking my life with bondage, die, in the name of Jesus.
- O God my Father, deliver me from any evil association or relationship that I found myself in, in the name of Jesus.
- Every power connecting me to evil partners, die by fire, in the name of Jesus.
- O God my Father, connect me with my divine partners, in the name of Jesus.
- I plug my head into the socket of divine favour, in the name of Jesus.
