“Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 18:19
Do you realize that God expects us to live in harmony with each other? To be together, not only in the same place but in mind, intent and purpose? There is a power that is released when we live with each other in unity. There is power in agreement.
Psalm 133:1 declares that it is good and pleasant for us to live in unity because wherever unity is found, there God commands blessings on the people. We all love blessings but we are not all fond of unity. It is hard to get along with people at times for we are all different, but that must not stop us from living in harmony. If we understand that the same grace we need for forgiveness from God is the same grace the other person needs from us, we will be much more tolerant and understanding of shortcomings we see in others.
Today’s Word is encouraging us to live in unity and to pray in unity. When there is agreement among the saints, God will answer our prayers. Jesus promised that where two or three are gathered in His name He will be in the midst of them. When you gather with your friends or family in His name expect Him to come. And when He comes, He brings blessings. He brings answers and He makes everything alright.
Today, don’t be a one-man show. Agree with someone. Ask God to use you today to be that partner that someone needs for the power of agreement to operate in their prayers. Be the solution to someone’s problem today. Let God use you in a mighty way as you make yourself available to Him.
Lord, my life is Yours. You know me better than I know myself. I give You permission to use me to be a blessing in the lives of others today. Cause me to be the solution to someone’s problem. Use me as the answer to someone’s prayer. Use me Lord for Your honour and glory. Amen.
