The Power of Agreement

To all those who are in favor say yea! To those who oppose say nay! The yea’s have it!! The power of yes is undeniable!  It has the ability to evoke motions that can create changes in human emotion which can cause a domino effect for success. May I discuss the awesomeness and elaborate a little to show the power of yea; the power of agreement. In life we all come to that epoch pinnacle where we are faced with the choice of where do we go from here, what do we believe; the choice between yes and no. Making the wrong decision can cost billion and a life time of regret and remorse. To make the right choice is no easy task; to make the wrong choice can cast you on the wrong stages of history and seal your doom for all eternity.

What is it about the power of agreement? It might at times seems to be a simple undertaking but look at it this way, nothing successful happens without the power of agreement. Without agreement, families would not exist, businesses would go under, goals would not be accomplished and people would live isolated lives. Without the power of agreement people would never reach their full potential causing them to be ordinary at best and failures at least. The power of agreement were instituted by God for men to live full and productive lives; it is an important key to total success.

When we look back at creation, it was an agreement between God the father, Son and Spirit that caused the world to come into existence. It was God who says; Let us make man in our likeness and image. God instituted the first marriage between a man and woman. He brought them together in agreement for multiplication. He said that the earth was without form and void. In agreement He spoke this world into existence. All of creation came into being through the power of agreement.

We all know the saying; a house divided against it-self cannot stand. You will have to make the choice. Are you a builder or a divider? In our nation it will take an agreement to reach any worthwhile consensus to get anything done. While time is drifting and resource are dwindling those who have the power to make a difference are waging war on our economy holding the grass root for ransom in their selfish quest for self-gratification.  Do we have the power of agreement?

Before I drift too far from my main though let me get back to the more essentials of the subject. There are so many favor and goodness that comes with agreement. We can turn the world upside down when we are in agreement. This is not to say that we are mere robots and have to agree with everything that is given to us. As you realize by now, we are addressing the topic of the power of agreement. One can make a difference; we can lend our voice and raise the value of one with the power to agree.

As I look at this, I am drawn to the book of books to see what I can find with regards to the power to agree. It was interesting to find the examples that are laid out before us. I have chosen a few for the sake of time and length because the examples I found are inexhaustible. The power of agreement will bring victory!

We all know the story of Moses how he led the people of Israel out of Egypt. He gave Joshua instructions and he fought with Amalek. Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. When Moses held up his hand Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. Moses’ hands became heavy; so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it. And Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. Joshua defeated Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. Look at the difference that agreement makes; when he was supported, there was victory.

Israel defeated Amalek while Moses held up the rod of God in his hand. Moses needed help holding up his hands because they became too heavy for him to hold on his own. Aaron and Hur supported his hands and caused them to be steady the result was to defeat Amalek. There was the power of agreement for victory.

What can the power of agreement bring? Agreement will bring blessing. David said in his psalm, Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!  It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down on the beard, the beard of Aaron, Running down on the edge of his garments.  It is like the dew of Hermon, Descending upon the mountains of Zion; for there the Lord commanded the blessing. David compares living in agreement to anointing oil and the dew on Mount Hermon. Out of agreement God commands a blessing!

It is my belief that the word agree is one of the most underestimated words in the English dictionary. It grants consent. To agree is to be in one accord as of opinion; to come to an understanding with one accord.

Did you know that agreement is a covenant? This covenant works between two dynamics; it is a relationship between God and man. This is not like any other human agreement that is negotiate-able because there is no equal between God and man. This covenant is brought about by a loving God to undeserving man. God initiates this agreement and we are the responders.

Purpose is wrapped up in agreement! That purpose cannot be accomplished if there is no agreement. It is the coming together of many wills that is submitted to the divine will of God. As I see it, an agreement is the foundation upon which purpose can be worked out. In the base of agreement, purpose can be established; plans are developed and become superstructure for changing the world. This agreement starts with a covenant. Agreement is the heavenly way because heaven is in total agreement with the purpose of Christ.

All in favor say yea! Those who oppose say nay! The yeas have and I agree!
