Daily Verses: Matthew 18: 18-20
Key Verse: Matthew 18: 19: “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.
The word agree in Greek is ‘sumphoneo’ and the definition of that is harmony, compact, together, and in agreement. For example, in an orchestra, which typically has many different instruments, all of the instruments will play together in one key and out of that a beautiful piece of music will be produced. The same goes with God’s children, if two people are in one heart and in the name of Jesus, the power of God will work in amazing ways and will bring down God’s blessing. Remember the story in Acts 4 and Luke 5, the people were helping their crippled friend in unselfish and in unity. They were even willing to take out the roof where Jesus was residing and lowered the friend down to Him. In the end, the friend was healed by Jesus. But imagine if God’s children are not in unity but are always thinking about their own needs, own agenda, and own desire and aren’t willing to think about other people’s needs, what will happen? Disunity will occur. Know that the devil is really afraid of unity amongst God’s children because the devil believes that unity is the key to God’s power and miracle being poured down. From the beginning, the devil has always tried to destroy unity through lies and deceptions. The devil destroyed the unity between Adam and Eve and humans with God. From this we should know that we need to guard the unity among God’s children.
Being in agreement and in one heart will lead to a unity that will bring down God’s miracle.
I will learn to pay attention to the need of others instead of focusing on my own needs. I will start by paying attention to the needs of my family and my friends in faith.
Psalm 133 : 1 : Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
I will do an intercessory prayer for the people in my VIP list and put my hands on that list until they’re all touched by God.
