Why Be Equally Yoked?


Good morning, Beautiful Ones:

Happy Tuesday morning. I greet you in love and I pray that you are growing more and more, in Christ, every day.

As a business owner, one of the wonderful things I have the honor of doing is working alongside my husband. Our business, Sacred Journey Services, LLC, offers premarital counseling, wedding officiant services, baby blessings and dedications, house blessings, and mobile notary services. What I love, more than anything, is walking this journey with my husband, as we walk together with God. God knew that it would take both of us to bring His vision to life.

When we counsel couples, in preparation for marriage, it is so important that my husband and I are equally yoked and in agreement with what the Word of God says, especially about marriage, so that we may lead the couples in the correct manner and in order with God’s Word.

Why is being equally yoked so important. Equally yoked means you are of the same mind and heart in your faith walk with Christ. As Christians, it is important because being equally yoked allows you to grow and move together. Yes, there will be some seasons where one person may mature faster than the other, but the time period is usually short.

Being equally yoked, spiritually, is wonderful when both parties know how to come to God together in prayer, worship and unity.

Yesterday, my husband and I prayed, before and after we submitted some paperwork. Our desire is for good news, but our prayer was for God’s will to be done. We understand that we sit everything at God’s feet. Our Father wants to bless us exceedingly and abundantly, according to His will and the calling that is on our lives. God also wants the same for you as well.

Ephesians 3:20-21 

New King James Version (NKJV)

20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

In love and In Christ,

Rev. Marcia Davis
