TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
The Lord has invited you to partner with Him in a way only the two of you can do together. Continue to ask, seek and knock while praising Him for joining you.
In 2 Corinthians, Paul saw a problem with the Corinthian believers. They were unequally yoked and that was a very bad thing. In fact, God doesn’t like it when His kids are hooked up with people or thought patterns that pull them down.
To be unequally yoked is to take two oxen, one strong, the other weak; one old, the other young; one domesticated, the other wild and you put them in the same yoke, or harness, expecting them to partner for a positive outcome. Only problem is, they will not partner.
One will always pull harder, out of alignment or just plain lead the other astray. They will fight each other and your battle will not be with plowing your ground. It will be about these two opposing forces.
When you’re unequally yoked, you fight the wrong battles. When you partner with the wrong things, you wear yourself out. You cannot progress.
Instead of partnering with the enemy, partner with the Holy Spirit. Yes, make some tough decisions about the company you keep, the thoughts you think and the ways you let the enemy into your Promised Land.
Kick them out! Declare them ripped out by the roots in Jesus’ name then don’t look back. So what do you need to unyoke from?
For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God, as God has said, ‘I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God. and they will be my people. Therefore, come out from among them, and be separate,’ says the Lord. – 2 Corinthians 14-17
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO KICK THE ENEMY OUT OF YOUR PROMISED LAND. PARTNER WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT FOR ALIGNMENT AND PROGRESSION.
