The Power of Agreement part four
The power of Agreement
By Laura McDonald

Matthew 18:18-19 Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will  be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. (19) Again (or assuredly) 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.

God honors agreement no matter what the level and that is where He is able to work. God is not into division-He is into unity. James 3:16 For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing will be there.

What can you agree on? Start there! There may be a relationship you have that you can’t get along with the person for anything. Look for something you can agree on. It might be one thing; it might be a color, or a hobby, or a food, whatever. Even if it is only one thing stay at the place of agreement.

When you do that that is where your power is and you are allowing God to work in that relationship. Wayne teaches people how to witness on the streets. One thing he tells them is to find a place of agreement and to stay there. If you can do that than God can work. If you just argue God can’t bless that.

If one of us can put 1,000 to flight than two of us can send the legions fleeing! If you want to see real power released in your life: with your spouse, children, friends… then get into agreement with each other and get into agreement with God’s word.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. (10) For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, for he has no one to help him up. (11) Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; but how can one be warm alone? (12) Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
