GOD IS MOVING
We‘re on Day 3 of the Fast and I can feel God moving! This 2019 Fast has me feeling so empowered like never before!
I’ve literally been getting revelation upon revelation about so much and then the messages I‘ve been receiving from some of you have been confirming a lot!
I honestly believe that this year things will be settled for you. It may be a time of pruning and perfecting and readying. (Is readying even a real word?) lol!
Whatever the case... I know 100% that God is going to respond to each and every one of you who are taking this journey seriously with Him.
Marriage is great! But God is greater! And He will give you the best marriage when You put Him first and foremost.
Today’s prayer is about being equally yoked! There’s SO much to say about that!!! Lol!
Have your spiritual antenna on alert! Don’t end up with someone and be regretting it 20 years down the line because you finally realise you‘re not equally yoked.
For those already married... pray this prayer seriously over your husband. It’s very possible to start off as equally yoked and the spirit of imbalance can creep in and then you find that you and your husband are no longer on the same page about things. (I’m speaking from experience here) ... there was a time earlier this year when I became so relaxed and was kind of coasting with my marital prayers and before I knew it... Mr B and I found ourselves in different head spaces spiritually!
We had to fix and correct that real quick!!! And God gave us the opportunity to do so by clearly pointing it out to me. We must remember that being unequally yoked isn’t just about being from different religions etc. It’s about having different mindsets, not showing a united front on matters and being in a different head space spiritually at any one point in time.
The truth is it’s inevitable to fall out of sync sometimes but what’s most important is realising it and not staying in that. The devil wants you to stay trapped in all of that and he will tell you lies and further bring up things to make you feel angry/disconnected or distracted from your husband (and the same can happen to him about you) - but you have to break out of that. None of you shall be held in darkness and none of you shall be distracted. Your husband/future husband will not be pulled or drawn away by anything. You shall cleave to one another and be equally yoked in Jesus’ name. Be your husband’s “builder upper”. Lift him up and ensure that you are both each other’s main prayer partners. Two are better than one! You‘re in this together.
“Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 English Standard Version (ESV)
9 Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. 10 For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! 11 Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone?12 And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”
If you’re not married yet.... but in a relationship, ensure you guys are praying together. The same way you would go on dates to the cinema, go out to eat, Netflix and chill... Make sure you have (once a month) where you have your own prayer time together. Study the Bible (it’s free so you can’t use low funds in the bank as an excuse for not meeting up that day lol!)
And when I say YOUR OWN TIME TOGETHER... I mean ... YOUR OWN TIME TOGETHER... Not prayer time carved out by your local church or fellowship group. Because that’s easy to do. Make the responsibility both of yours by setting out your own bible study and prayer time together ... and pick a day where you’ll fast together too. It doesn’t have to be weekly but certainly every month.
If you truly want to be spiritually equally yoked ... then it’s important that you guys are dating in the spirit realm as well as in the physical realm. And the same applies to our married folk. As much as we say... Date your wife... Date your husband... you need to be spiritually dating them too! That’s what God taught me this year in my marriage.
Back in 2011 on one of my trips to Heaven, God showed me the importance of Mr B and I being made of the same material. He took a rope made out of solid ivory and wrapped it around us, with Christ standing in the middle of the circle and said we can only truly be together and in sync when we are both made of this same material.
The moment you neglect Christ from the equation, the moment you let your prayer life slip, the moment you neglect Bible study together... that’s the moment the rope starts to loosen and what has bound you together gets slack and what was tied up starts to slip out ... the first to slide out of there is Christ... because Christ won’t be where His presence is not yearned for. And once He goes... everything’s gone. It’s just man and woman. And Man and Woman without Christ is just that. It’s Man and Woman... and not Husband and Wife... That’s not MARRIAGE... That‘s a civil partnership!
So... Day 3! Pray to be equally yoked!
Faith, Hope & Love,
Mrs B xx
