Power of Agreement

We can access untapped potential when we recognize the power of agreement and come into agreement with God and His Word.

In a recent post on PureGlory.net, Apostle Gabriel Cross posted the following statement which arrested my attention:

Come out of agreement with the enemy and come into the love agreement, with the Father, concerning the wonderful, who you are, and your destiny.

It’s time to EMBRACE WHO YOU ARE, completely!

So many times, as believers we come into agreement with “the enemy” of our souls” and believe what others say about us, including ourselves, as we embrace negative words and images that portray us in ways that attempt to override God’s revelation of who we really are in light of all He has called us to be.

The stirring comments caused me to think about the “Power of Agreement.” When it comes to all that God has spoken to us there should be no disagreement; however, at times we encounter a differing opinion or as the title of this response describes, an

Argument

to express my point of view
to convince and convert you
I keep an open mind
and try to find
reasons to conclude
and win my case and erase
the trace of doubt
to rescind the scowl
and take the frown
and turn it upside down
into a smile for me

“I see. . . I see. . .
I agree. . . BUT!”

In those instances of disagreement, the insidious culprit can be fear which seeks to undermine and weaken our confidence in God. In those instances, we must remember “God has not given us the spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

The spirit of fear—is crippling, debilitating, for God says, “I can do all things through Christ,” but the spirit of fear challenges everything God says and argues with Him. God desires that we agree with His word and never respond with “But!”

We must recognize there is no power in fear. Indeed, the spirit of fear renders impotent those who embrace this enemy of faith. Dierdre Curry speaks of the “disempowering impact of disagreement” which nullifies the promises of God, all of which are “yes” and “Amen.” Furthermore, there is no fear in love, for God is love and perfect love casts out all fear. God’s desire is that we be made whole, abounding with a healthy body, a sound mind, and a fruitful spirit.

Our heart’s desire is to abide in the will of God, as we more fully comprehend this vital factor of life:

The Power of Agreement

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

Boundless power lies in the hands of those who agree.
As touching anything that two of them shall ask,
God hastens to perform, to fulfill their decree,
No matter how small or how great the task.
Those who ask shall receive, and those who seek shall find.
To those who knock, it shall be opened unto;
Those who become one in heart and soul and in mind
Scale the mountain of faith to reach the highest view.
They know the transforming power of the spoken word,
Far beyond the bounds that finite minds encompass.
Nothing shall be withheld from those in one accord,
Who decree that their words have already come to pass.
Once agreed upon, the deed is already done
For those whose heart and soul have been fused into one.
