Let’s talk about unequally yoked. We have been taught that we should wait on Godly and righteous men and this is a good thought if we can wait; however, the situation pans out many men and women who were not saved when they got marriage but are living righteously now.
Many people were God ordained to be married but someone might not be saved or maybe not delivered just yet. Hence, what we see is that maybe there is need of some perfecting of someone, someone needs see salvation, and someone must need help to become more like Christ. It is not the case that we are going to meet Prince Charming or Princess Charming and be whisked off into eternal blitz…someone needs to grow up and do some serious soul searching. Especially, if we have been married before, why is it that we aren’t bettering ourselves. Oh, I hear the excuses already, he didn’t , she did, and I won’t, I can’t; however, the question I ask brother, sister is what is going on when we find ourselves with other people and something is wrong with them too?
Can it be that if these people have the same problems that we are attracted to those same kinds of people or are drawing them to us; or, can it be my friend that the one thing all these wives, all these husbands has in common is you?
Be not unequally yoked with unbelievers in marriage, and in friendship. So the two have walked together and one turned back and has yet to return to Godliness equals unequally yoked. This is what happens when affairs take place within marriages and the other person must be restored. Our spirits separated, however, it doesn’t have to be adultery it can be any sin or thought that rises itself up against YHWH. Yes, YHWH remember we wrestle not against flesh and blood means that it is YHWH in us who needs to fight, too much of that flesh against flesh and we know that flesh never wins.
Renewing our minds is important…good word today….be not unequally yoked takes many forms. What we must do is find which one and fight the good fight of faith.
Stay in His Presence…

“For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.” (Psalm 84:11)
I had a counselor tell me once that God did not promise us a rose garden but allows us the chance to grow our own…I didn’t get it then but I do now…and can now add to that because we see that it takes much light to grow roses; and water, even before we get the full bush we began to see buds…the buds aren’t beautiful…nothing about those that tell us what is inside..”can’t pick them now,” we think.
“They’re not ready,” we say. If we have ever seen them in full bloom then we know that it will be well worth the wait….I find the yellow roses so magnificent and even the pink ones fill me with the essence of their beauty…but we all know that attached to that beauty are thorns…hurtful things that if we are not careful they can bring severe pain…
So it is with life we have to wait for the good thing He promises…God that said He won’t with hold them…the good things..
So I say wait….
be careful to watch out for the thorns…
