The Five Steps To Breaking The Yokes of Delay and Stagnation

Reading Time: 2 minutes

It’s possible you have been waiting for certain things to happen. You may be waiting for your business to take off, waiting for that next big raise, or waiting for a new job. It can be easy to get stuck in a rut of disappointment, and it can seem like the only way out is to wait for something better to come along. But what if there was a different way? What if you could break the yokes of delay and stagnation by making small changes in your life?

Delay is a yoke. Stagnation is a yoke. That looks like a bad news! But you know what? There is also good news! The yoke of delay and stagnation can be broken!

Let’s take a look at the scriptures.

And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy brother; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck. – Gen 27:40 (KJV)

Take a look at The Message Translation.

You’ll live by your sword, hand-to-mouth, and you’ll serve your brother. But when you can’t take it any more you’ll break loose and run free. – Gen 27:40 (MSG)

What steps do you take to break off these yokes?

Step 1: Get restless. Be angry.

Get to the point when you can’t take it anymore. When you get to this point, you are getting ready to break loose from the yokes of delay and stagnation.

Recognize the problem. The first step to breaking the yokes of delay and stagnation is recognizing you have a problem. The first step to solving your problem is admitting that it exists.

Recognizing what’s holding you back from success can be a difficult process, but it’s necessary if you want to move forward.

Step 2: Identify Your Thoughts and Beliefs

One of the most important steps to breaking the yokes of delay and stagnation is identifying your thoughts and beliefs.

What are you thinking? How are you feeling? What do you think about this situation? Noticing what your thoughts and beliefs are can help you change the way you approach your situation.

Sometimes, when things don’t work out, we make it seem like it’s because of something that someone else did or didn’t do. But really, it came down to how we were thinking.

If we want to break the yokes of delay and stagnation, one thing we can start with is noticing our thoughts. Once you identify what your thoughts are, it may be easier to change them into something more empowering.

For example: “I’m a failure because I haven’t reached my goal yet” becomes “I’m doing everything I can to reach my goals.” This could be just enough to break free from the negative thought pattern that’s keeping us stuck in our rut!

To be continued…

No more delays. My wedding is happening soonest.

I bind the spirit of delay in my life in Jesus name.

Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest? – Isaiah 29:17 (KJV)

Get Restless By Pastor Dunamis (10th October 2021)

Get Restless By Pastor Dunamis (10th October 2021)

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Get Restless was taught by Rev. Dunamis Okunowo on the 10th of October 2021 at Shouts of Grace Center, Joke Plaza, Beside Trans Amusement Park, Bodija-UI Road, Ibadan.

In his teaching, Rev. Dunamis made mention of the following important points:

God’s word cannot go back to Him, and say, “I cannot do this.”

So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

Isaiah 55:11 (NKJV)

You do not speak against the source of your blessing.

The things of the spirit cannot be logically explained. Sometimes you don’t understand but you just obey.

The word of God is life.

The blessing is tangible; it can be transferred.

But he said, “Your brother came with deceit and has taken away your blessing.”

Genesis 27:35 (NKJV)

The blessing is different from miracle.

The force that played out in the life of Jacob was mercy.

As it is written, “Jacob I have loved, but Esau I have hated.” What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? Certainly not! For He says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion.” So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who shows mercy.

Romans 9:13-16 (NKJV)

It is the LORD that shows mercy.

Thank God for the things you can do (your skills, your oratory power, etc.) but ask for mercy!

There’s something about the mercy of God which you must factor into your life.

So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who shows mercy.

Romans 9:16 (NKJV)

We are not saying you should not will or that you should not run, but in your ‘willing’ and ‘running,’ remember mercy.

You will be under the yoke until you grow restless.

By your sword you shall live, And you shall serve your brother; And it shall come to pass, when you become restless, That you shall break his yoke from your neck.”

Genesis 27:40 (NKJV)

No matter what you have done in the past, there’s the mercy of God. The Holy Spirit brings you to the place of realization, not a place of condemnation.

What distinguished Joseph is found in Gen 39:21.

But the LORD was with Joseph and showed him mercy, and He gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.

Genesis 39:21 (NKJV)

Mercy has to be shown before favour can be given. You have to see a revelation about mercy for favour to rest on you.
