Day 5 – 1/9/2020

Coming into Agreement  
 
Scripture:
 
Matthew 18:19-20 “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.” (NIV)
 
 
Agreement occurs when two or more people or groups come into harmony concerning a matter. The central idea of agreement is people coming together and identifying common concerns or requests. Agreement binds those involved to unite emotionally and spiritually to move something forward. Most people believe that it takes a large group of people to accomplish God’s purposes. But Jesus made it clear that ‘it only takes two’. He declared: “if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven”. He spoke concerning the clout that believers have with God when they come in to agreement. He says “if” just two believers agree (in unity) in the request they ask of God in prayer, He will do it for them! He further declares that when just two or three of us come together, in His name, He would meet them there and be in their presence. When we do this, we literally bring the power of heaven to bear upon our requests before God and He will do what we ask according to His will. How powerful is that!
 
Understanding and operating in the power of agreement will change your walk with God.
 
It’s Time to Pray: Lord Jesus, help me to learn to come into agreement with likeminded believers concerning my concerns and request in prayer. Help me to understand and live in the power of agreement so that Your will and purposes are fulfilled in my life. In Jesus Name, Amen!
