This week the world follows the vote counting of the elections in the United States, with a super fierce dispute. Trump and Biden collide with 50% until we have the final result, which certainly will not please a large majority. That’s because there is no agreement on who should lead the most influential nation in the world.

The Bible questions how two people would walk together if they don’t agree. And the context in which the prophet Amos asks this question about agreement refers to family life.
Do two walk together,unless they have agreed to meet?Prophet Amos 3:3
Agreement Is a Matter of Heart
This is an extremely important issue for a family to be successful. Our willingness to walk in agreement affects our communication, finances, sexuality, and the most important decisions of family life.
The agreement is a matter of the heart. The value of family agreements is not affected by the fact that we have different opinions. On the contrary, we can decide to walk together from the moment we are ready to serve others and accept their different opinions. That is why a decision taken together produces excellent results and avoids many losses.
Think of a symphony. A set of different sounds come together to form something extremely beautiful and unique. The word symphony originates from ancient Greek (symphōnia) with the meaning of “agreement or combination of sounds”.
Prayer for Supernatural Results
Jesus said that the church has the power to agree on earth about God’s will. And it will be accomplished. He did not say that we can ask according to our own will and we will have our answer. But that when we agree on what is decided in heaven, this matter will come to reality here on earth.
Your prayer with other believers, who discern the wind of the Spirit of God, will release all kinds of blessings on your life and family. Try praying with your family, your leaders, and your church. And you will enjoy fast supernatural results.
Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.Jesus, Gospel of Matthew 18:18-20
Conciliation To Avoid Divisions
Furthermore, we see in the apostolic letters a strong call to fellowship to avoid divisions. Pay attention that you will not see in the Bible a single incentive for us to value different opinions, my way of thinking is simply different from yours. The call is to choose to walk together.
The word used by the Apostle Paul in the verse below to “agree with one another” is Greek legete, which originates from lego, and means to speak in agreement. It is used only in the New Testament 2267 times! So when your conversations are open to conciliation, you will see the growth of God’s purpose come to reality in your life.
I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.Apostle Paul, 1Corinthians 1:10
Breaking Past Permissions for New Advances
Finally, for new advances in our lives, it is essential to renounce inappropriate permissions from the past. You can recognize agreements that you made a long time ago and to this day drag on like a burden in your life. From emotional ties, financial commitments to poorly spoken words, authorizations from the past that generate losses in the present and compromise your future can be broken by the power of Jesus’ name.
God’s Word is in your favor. The Lord’s blessing makes rich and brings no sorrow with it. It is enough for you, preferably with the help of someone you trust, to identify and renounce in your own words those authorizations that harm your future. And your whole family will benefit from the upgrades that await you.
Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.Prophet Isaiah 43:18-19
God’s Word affirms the value of agreement for a family to be successful. The prophet Amos says that just as the lion does not roar in the forest until it has caught its prey, and the bird does not fall into a trap if it has not been set before, so a home cannot prevail if it is not in agreement.
Then recognize that for your home to prevail, the agreement is needed. And through a life of prayer, conciliation, and giving up inadequate permissions from the past, you will live the best that God has prepared for your family and everyone around you.
Prayer: God, thank you so much for your kindness and your loyal love. I want to live a life of genuine communion with your Holy Spirit and with the people with whom the Lord has given me in my life. That is why I ask you to help me to renounce all harmful agreements from my past and to advance towards the best that You have for my life, in the name of Jesus. Amen.
