Would you like to be confident that what you ask for will be granted? Do you long for being synchronized with the will of God? Does being in agreement with others sound good? Will you do what is required?
Being in agreement can be a difficult task if we only follow our human desires. If we are selfish, we likely will not agree with others on most decisions. Agreement does not always mean we get what we want. We may need to compromise.
Is there a way to not compromise but agree with others anyway? Sure! We come together in the name of Jesus, pray about the situation, discuss it, and agree because we are leaning on Him to provide the answer. As long as we are willing to follow Him, His leading, we will agree with Him and therefore agree with one another.
Jesus goes on to say that when we do that, we also get what we ask for. Why? Because what we ask for is according to His will. We have prayed, received His guidance, and we have chosen to follow Him. When we are following Him and His will, we ask for His will to be done. By asking for His will to be done, we get what we ask for.
What does this mean for us? It means we give up our selfishness. It means we put others ahead of ourselves. It means we take a step back to see the larger picture. It means we begin to see through Jesus’ eyes rather than our own.
I pray we all seek agreement with our brothers and sisters in Christ. I pray we seek God’s will in all situations. I pray each one of us submits to God, giving up our selfishness for His plan. Seek agreement. Seek God’s will. Spend time in prayer. Ask God for His will to be done. Gather as brothers and sisters in Jesus’ name.
Matthew 18:19-20 “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”
