You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

“It shall come to pass in that day that his burden will be taken away from your shoulder, and his yoke from your neck, and the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil.” – Isaiah 10:27

In the university where I work, a spiritual assembly session will be conducted every day morning. It will be conducted in a big auditorium and each class of students will be allotted a bay. For several years my bay was on the back end of the auditorium. Sitting at the back end I always struggled to look onto the person who stands on the stage to preach.

So I used to watch the people who were on the stage through a LCD screen that was close to my bay. Several days I watched like this and soon it became a habit to me. After some days I forgot to look onto the stage at all. I was addicted to watch the proceedings through the screen itself. 

In this year my class was allotted a bay which was very near to the stage. Sitting at the front end it was very easy for me to look into the stage directly. As days passed I understood that I am doing something differently. As everyone who sits with me look onto the stage directly I was the only one who looked to the LCD screen that was kept on that bay. 

I found out this strange behavior and told myself to look onto the stage directly but I could not do that at all. Whenever I tried that I failed within a few minutes. Then I felt that I was addicted to the habit of looking through the LCD screen even when I sit near to the stage. It took me somedays to change that behavior and nowadays I look into the stage directly without looking the LCD screen. 

Many a times in our life we do something wrong casually and then it becomes a habit. After some days without our knowledge we get addicted to that wrong habit. Even today you might be having a yoke upon your life. It might be smoking, drinking, adultery or any kind of bad habit.

Today Jesus Christ wants to pour out His anointing to remove the yoke that was upon your life. You can never break the yoke with your strength. 

Our Heavenly Father says in Zechariah 4:6, “…Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit…”

You can never come out of your burden through your own might or strength. Only when God’s Spirit come upon you, you will be redeemed from the bondage and yoke. 

My mom was a prayer warrior and she pray with tears for everyone. When I was a teen, I had seen my family facing several problems and whenever we face a problem my mom used to go to the prayer room and pray for long hours. After few hours when she comes out of the room she will be feeling sad thinking about the same burden or problem for which she prayed for. 

Without her knowledge somehow she will be thinking about the problem and it became like a yoke in her life. She doesn’t know to stop thinking about the problem or trouble which she had surrendered to the Hands of Lord. One day as she was praying God anointed her with His Spirit and from that day on her faith increased. Now as I see her she is not under that yoke and she never feels sad for any problem which she had surrendered to Lord’s care. 

My dear young friend, Even today you might be under the yoke of sin or unbelief or disease or worldly problems. If you ask God to fill you with His Holy Spirit, He will pour out His Spirit upon you and deliver you from all the bondages and yoke. You will be set free by the anointing of God’s Holy Spirit. 

Get filled by the anointing of God’s Holy Spirit and stay free. God bless you.
