Are You In The Place Of Agreement?

The Jerusalem church in Acts was very powerful because those in the church were of one heart and one soul in their vision for the kingdom.

Jesus says, "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" (Matt. 18:19). The place of agreement is the place of power. Conversely, the place of disagreement is the place of powerlessness.

Every principle in the Word flows out of the character and nature of God. Although God is a triune God--Father, Son and Holy Spirit-- He is always in total agreement with Himself. All three members of the Godhead are forever in unity.

God wants the same in His relationship with you. If you delight yourself in Him, which means to be in agreement with His will for your life, He will give you the desires of your heart (Ps. 37:4).

In a church, God wants unity in your relationship with others. When there is one vision, there will never be division. There will be no confusion or weakness in the camp.

Psalm 133:1-2 says, "Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down on the beard, the beard of Aaron, running down on the edge of his garments."

The anointing of God can flow mightily in a church where members dwell in unity. So great was the unity in the Jerusalem church that awesome power for miracles and financial provision was released (Acts 4:33-34).

In the days of Babel, "the whole earth had one language and one speech" (Gen. 11:1). Even God marvelled at the effort of the people in wanting to build a tower that reaches to the heavens.

God says, "Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them" (11:6). As incredulous as the building of that tower may sound, God was fully convinced that the people would succeed.

Make certain that you eliminate those things in your life that cause disunity--unforgiveness, anger, gossip, a critical spirit, being easily offended, unrealistic expectations, and hidden agendas. Remember that when you are in the place of agreement, there is unity, and nothing is impossible!
