"Faye's Daily Words Of Encouragement" # 113 Today's Word is:Yoke"

Updated on January 9, 2010

"Faye's Daily Words Of Encouragement" # 113 Today's Word Is: Yoke"

Take your yoke upon me,and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall  find rest unto your souls.
Take your yoke upon me,and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

"Faye's Daily Words Of Encouragement" # 113 Today's Word Is : Yoke"

Definition of the word Yoke: Means a neck frame for carringing heavy loads, a clamp, or a burden.

Matthews chapter 11 - 29 : Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

2 Corinthians chapter 6 - 14 : Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers; for fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?.. and what communion hath light with darkness.

Galatians chapter 5 - 1 : Stand fast therefore in liberty where with Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

1 Timothy chapter 1 - 6 : Let many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honour, that the name of God and His doctrine be not blasphemed.

As Jesus carried the burden of the cross for us, when he died on the cross; we have to carry our burdens... even though sometimes... they get very heavy. If we just only realize that when they beat Jesus , spit on him, and called him names....he never grumbled or said a word....he carried his yoke ,and we to must bear our own yoke .. just like Jesus. A yoke is always a heavy burden upon us to carry... but Jesus said he would make it lite.

Even though we're not Jesus; we are suppose to be strong in our faith so will be able to do the same as Jesus. many of us don't have the strength, faith and courage to carry out whatever duty God put before us.

      I have found that as long as I am focusing on what I am not able to do and my limitations that I see so many things in life as being challenging and a burden. It is only when I change my perspective from off of the little "I am" (me} and focus on the I Am (God) that I do not see those same things as burdens anymore. My new perspective becomes God is taking me through so that God can do a new thing in me. Peace and Blessings!

      It's so true, we don't have the strength to carry our burdens alone, that's why through fervent prayer we can get the help we so sorely need.

      Creativeone, Nice daily encouragement! As you stated: "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers; for fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?.. and what communion hath light with darkness." We must continue as children of God to shine the Light on the darkness!

      As we grow in the knowledge GRACE and understanding of the Lord we must be aware of who and what we yoke ourselves with! Thank you for sharing, In His Love & Blessings!
