There are stories that have been told to me that have left me flustered, disconcerted and have made me refocus my ministry to help many around the world.
As a minister of the Gospel and a counsellor to many, I receive numerous letters, emails from people who are seeking a word from God. Most of the letters and prayer requests that I have received have had to do with life challenges. As a matter of fact, more than 90% of letters that I receive are from people who are seeking guidance in their relationships.
These relationship challenges seem to affect everyone and in every facet of life. I am acquainted with a story of a young and successful accountant who dropped down the career ladder because she could not handle the pressures of her marital life. She mastered financial management but she could not handle in-laws. Her marriage fell apart a few months later and her professional life took a downward turn. Someone said:
“an intelligent person solves problems while a wise person avoids problems”.
The Bible has given us a clear solution on how to steer clear of this problem. Maybe you have just started out in life as a young woman or a young man, it is crucial that you get wise in life or you will be a victim.
2 Corinthians 6:14: Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness.
I love this portion of scripture. It starts by saying that don’t be unequally yoked to an unbeliever. To be yoked means to connect, to associate or to tie. When people get into a relationship, their spirits are tied together. This is critical to understand because you can only move as high as your spirit can go. The Bible says don’t be unequally yoked to a unbeliever. The word unequally means different or asymmetrical. Your spirit has something about it which makes you to be favoured, blessed, rescued, transformed and succeed in life. If your spirit is tied up with another man’s spirit that the enemy has designed for destruction, failure, difficulties and evil, you shall not move ahead in life.
If you have been stagnating for many years now without any change, check your relationship. It is very possible that you are being dragged down because you are yoked with a spirit of failure. Some of you were supposed to be far in life but your current situation does not line up with your destiny. It is time to cut-off the connections, associations, friendships and bonds that are holding you down. The worst thing in life is not death,.
“The worst thing in life is not the death of a man or a woman, the worst thing that can happen to a person is when God’s gifts and potential within a person die while he or she lives”.
Join me in this prayer right now. Claim every word in it as yours and receive it now.
Father, I refuse to be unequally yoked. I am taking back control of my destiny right now. My life on earth is sweeter, brighter and better than where I am. I can see the future and the plans that you have for me. I know that my redeemer lives because my destiny is glorious, in the name of Jesus. Amen.
