The last few years have been filled with many challenges. There have been many low points and false starts. The Spirit of the Lord would remind you today:
The weight of my yoke is easy!
The heaviness of this past season has settled on many people’s shoulders.
As this weight rested on you, your foundations began to crack.
You questioned my goodness and my faithfulness. In some cases, you set aside my plans and purposes for your life, choosing to go your own way – the way of least resistance.
I do not hold this against you!
I understand where you find yourself today.
But I am here today to pull this weight off your shoulders and restore the foundations of your faith.
Activation: Ask Holy Spirit if there are any weights you are carrying that you need to let go of. Ask him if there are any cracks that need to be restored.
As Holy Spirit shows you these things, ask him to lead you through a time of deliverance. Repent and break partnership with carrying weight that is not yours to carry. Ask for Holy Spirit to fill those places a fresh with more of him. Declare abundant life over yourself.
Matthew 11:28-30 (MSG)
Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.
John 16:33 (NKJV)
. . . in the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.
Matthew 17:20-21 (NIV)
. . . Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.
