OPEN HEAVENS DEVOTIONAL DATE: TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 13TH 2022 THEME: THE YOKE IS BROKEN
MEMORISE: For now will I break his yoke from off thee, and will burst thy bonds in sunder. Nahum 1:13
READ: Isaiah 10:27
27 And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.
A yoke is something placed around the neck of an animal to control and restrict its movement. There are many people walking around with heavy yokes placed on their necks by the devil. Today, any yoke that the devil has placed on you will be broken in Jesus' name. The concluding part of Isaiah 10:27 says "...and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing."
Since anointing can be passed through radiation, today by the special grace of God, anointing is going to be passing from this devotional to you and that anointing will break every yoke in your life in Jesus' name. In Judges 6:3-6, we see the people of Israel suffering under the financial yoke of poverty. They planted seeds and nurtured them until it was harvest, but all were forcefully stolen from them by their enemies, until the Lord delivered them from the yoke through Gideon.
Several years ago, a song was recorded about a notorious robber called Anikura in Lagos. Anikura ensured that after people had made profits from their sales in the market, such gains didn't make it home with them. This is the case of some people today: they work hard and make money, but somehow, the money disappears from their hands and they cannot point to one beneficial thing they used it for. I decree into your life today: every yoke of poverty that has restricted your growth financially is broken in Jeus' name.
For some ladies, the devil has put a marital yoke on them. I say that yoke is broken now in Jesus' name. Some are married, but all efforts to have children have proven abortive. I decree that in nine months from now, people will celebrate the naming of your baby with you in Jesus' name. For some, the devil placed a yoke on their brain no matter how hard they cannot pass exams and move forward academically. I decree this moment that any yoke placed on you be broken now in Jesus' name. It is the anointing that breaks yokes. You get this anointing when you spend quality time with God - when you study your Bible without being in a hurry, when you spend time in prayers without looking at your wristwatch. The more time you spend with God, the more His power rubs off on you and every yoke will be broken from your-life.
Spend quality time fellowshipping with God daily and no yoke will be able to withstand His anointing upon you.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Ezekiel 20-22

HYMN 12: MY FAITH LOOKS UP TO THEE
1 My faith looks up to thee,
thou Lamb of Calvary,
Now hear me while I pray;
take all my guilt away;
O let me from this day
be wholly thine!
2 May thy rich grace impart
strength to my fainting heart;
my zeal inspire!
As thou hast died for me,
oh, may my love to thee
pure, warm, and changeless be,
a living fire!
3 While life's dark maze I tread,
and griefs around me spread,
be thou my guide.
Bid darkness turn to day,
wipe sorrow's tears away,
nor let me ever stray
from thee aside.
4 When ends life's transient dream,
when death's cold, sullen stream
shall o'er me roll,
blest Savior, then, in love,
fear and distrust remove;
O bear me safe above,
a ransomed soul!
