Just Get One Person To Agree With You!

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Matthew 18:19 Again, 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.

O-bservation:

Here Jesus was teaching that if a person could “Just Get One Person To Agree With Them,” anything they agree upon and ask the Lord for will be done for them by Almighty God in heaven. They don’t have to get a whole neighborhood, or city, or state, or nation to agree with them. NO! Jesus said, “Just Get One Person To Agree With You,” and whatever you ask for will be granted by our Father in heaven.

A-pplication:

Sometimes I think we complicate this more than we should. First of all let’s take out the obvious things like asking God to kill someone who has done you wrong. Also, don’t agree with someone in prayer for God to help you do something that is morally, legally, or ethically wrong. God does not break his own word. After that don’t try and figure out how God can do it, or tell him how he should make it happen. NO! “Just Get One Person To Agree With You!” Take hold of their hand and read this passage out loud together. Once you’ve done that, state your case; what is it that you agree for? Then thank God for making it happen, in his way and in his time. Then the process of waiting and praising him and not doubting begins. As the two of you are faithful to hold on to these principles, it will happen in God's way and in God's time.

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus, I have my dear wife, who for so many years has been my one person who agrees with me in prayer. You have done the rest. You’ve always answering our prayers of agreement in your way and in your time. Thank You Jesus! Amen

You Don’t Need A Crowd

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Matthew 18:20 “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”

O-bservation:

This was the end of a segment that Jesus taught concerning sin in the church and how to deal with it. Finally, He taught His disciples the power of agreeing in His name when we pray. He told them that if just two or three are gathered in His name, He is with them at that moment. The power of this declaration is, “You Don’t Need A Crowd.”

A-pplication:

During my lifetime of ministry and travels, I’ve been at all kinds of events. Usually whoever was hosting the event had planned for a large crowd. And, I get it. A crowd brings excitement, people attract people, and the more you have there’s a better opportunity to fund the event financially. But in Jesus’ world, He wants us as His people to focus on the power of agreement. I remember the story of Jonathon and his “armor bearer” taking on the Philistine army and destroying them (1 Samuel 13:16-14:52). Solomon said, “Two are better than one” (Ecc. 4:9a). The first missionary team that was ever sent out in the New Testament was made up of just two men, Barnabas and Paul (Acts 13:3). As I recall, they were extremely successful. What I want you to hear this AM is simply that “You Don’t Need A Crowd.” You Just Need someONE to agree with you and Jesus will join your team of agreement, and wonderful things will become a real possibility.

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus, Please keep feeding me fresh vision, and I will look for someone to agree with me so that You will join the mix. I need agreement but most of all I need You! Amen
