THE LAW OF AGREEMENT

SCRIPTURE:

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)

DEVOTIONAL:

The law of confession (speaking God’s promises) becomes even more powerful when we also function according to God’s law of agreement. Speaking in agreement with God and each other has always been God’s plan, but sinful man has used these laws for evil instead of good. For example, in Genesis, chapters 10 and 11, Nimrod and the people at Babel began constructing a tower, which they planned to build higher and higher until it went right into Heaven.

Now we know there is only one way to Heaven, and it isn’t by our good works, no matter how high they reach toward Heaven. We can’t build or work our way into God’s good graces. The only way to Heaven is through the shed blood and resurrection life of Jesus Christ. The people of Babylon had one thing going for them, however. They were in total agreement with one another.

The lesson learned from the Tower of Babel is that the words you speak are powerful, but they are even more powerful when you and someone else are speaking in complete agreement. You can see that the words you speak have the ability to bring unity or disharmony, blessing or cursing, life or death. They can cause you to stay in one place or move to another place. But in agreement with others, words can accomplish whatever you can imagine.

Start using your words to bring forth the dreams and desires God has planted in your heart.

PRAYER:

Father, I now understand the power of my words for good or evil. Please help me to use my words for good, and to speak in agreement with others to bring forth the plans and purposes of God. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
