My dearly beloved in Christ! I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The auspicious word of God that comes to you for today, is taken from the book of Leviticus 26:13, “I have broken the bands of your yoke, and made you walk upright.”
The Lord is telling you through this verse that He has broken your bondages and has set you free, and made you walk upright with your head lifted up. How is our God and what is He going to do for you? God is saying “I am going to make you walk with your head lifted up. This verse is saying that God is going to break all the bands of your yoke and help you walk with your head lifted up. Yoke means some kind of weight thrust upon your shoulder with which you are unable to lift up your head up. It is pressing your mind, your thoughts, and troubling you. God wants to release you from that yoke which is heavy on your neck. God wants to squeeze and break it asunder. Such pressure that causes pain, stress, sorrow and agony are the works of Satan. I have heard people say, “There is some mental pressure or struggle that keeps troubling me always.” From that struggle God wants to release you. The yoke is pressing your mind, your body, your soul and spirit. These are the works of the devil that causes you to be pressed by the yoke that has been thrust upon your shoulder.
People who are pressed with such kind of pressure even cry out saying that that they are experiencing much pressure on their shoulder, in their body and so on. This pressure is constantly pressing my head, they would say. Therefore God is going to uproot the evil spirit that has pressurised your very life, by sitting on your shoulder as a yoke and creating much trouble to you. And thereby You have lost all your peace. God is going to remove all the spirit of the yoke that has been laid over you and He is going to release you from all the sufferings that you are going through, because of the yoke and he will make you to walk with your head lifted up.
We see in the bible how the woman with infirmity was bent for nearly eighteen years because of the yoke laid upon her by the evil spirit of the devil. This evil spirit was sitting within her and was not allowing her to look up and walk steadily. Instead she was bending her back and never could see the world around her. She led a miserable life until the Lord met her and took pity on her and healed her of her infirmity. Today is a day when the Lord is going to meet you. God said to her, “You have been redeemed from the hold of Satan, therefore you shall no more walk with your bent back , but you shall walk with your head lifted up.”The very next minute her back which had been bent all these years straightened and she was able to lift up her head and turn around. The woman with infirmity jumped with joy at the miracle that the Lord had done for her. Her joy knew no bounds. The bible says, she rejoiced in the Lord and went home glorifying God. Similarly the Lord is going to do a miracle for you and remove the yoke from your shoulder that is constantly pressing you. He is going to straighten your head and make you walk with head lifted up, since all these years you have been pressed by the yoke.
May be some shameful deed would have caused you to bend your head and walk all these years. In that shameful deed the Lord is going to perform a miracle and make you walk upright. The creditors from whom you had borrowed money might have made you to walk in shame all this while by making you pay only the interest. Hereafter God will help you to pay all your dues and set you free from all your debts. God will help you to walk with head lifted up among the people in the society and in the midst of your family members. God will stretch out His hand and help you in this regard. And you shall go rejoicing and glorifying God.
Prayer: Lord we thank you. Lord I bless all the children who are reading this message in the name of Jesus. We thank You, Lord for causing us to walk upright. We thank you because you make us to walk with our head lifted up. There are many who are unable to lift up their head and walk boldly in the society because of their debts or due to some shameful incident which has taken place in their lives. Uproot all such problems from their lives, so that they may be able to walk with head lifted up. Remove all the pressure that has mounted upon them due to works of the evil spirit the Devil. Let them lead a happy and peaceful life. We submit all our thanksgivings at the feet of the Lord Jesus, who causes us to walk with our head lifted up.
In Jesus Name we pray.
