So many believers of Jesus Christ desire to be free from an up and down lifestyle where they are held captive and controlled by the elements of society and culture and there is no surety or hope in the future. One of the remedies to an up and down lifestyle is for one to come into agreement with God and His word. "Let every valley be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low; and let the rough ground become a plain, and the rugged terrain a broad valley” (Isaiah 40:4 NAS). Scripture clearly instructs each believer to walk by the Spirit (Galatians 5:16) which is only possible when one is in agreement with God.
Scripture proposes a question, “Can two walk together, unless they are agreed” (Amos 3:3 NKJV). To walk in agreement with God identifies and describes one’s relationship, connection, trust, and dependence in God, Jesus Christ, and Holy Spirit. Also walking in agreement with God reveals a believer’s lifestyle as one who walks and moves in conformity, in one accord, and in rhythm with God according to His will and destiny for their life. Each believer is to live, move, and have their being in God (Acts 17:28). To walk in agreement denotes that two or more parties have come together with one purpose, agenda, and direction and to function as one in unity, harmony, and one accord. A great illustration is found in Matthew 11:29-30 NKJV where Jesus stated, “Take My yoke upon you…For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Being yoke is likened to two individuals walking and functioning as one unit in total agreement.
Walking in agreement with God is a key element to releasing the Lord and His kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. Every person lives in agreement with someone or something. An individual is either in agreement with the living God, His kingdom and word or with culture and the god of this age. Scripture instructs us, "As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him" (Colossians 2:6 NKJV). Every believer must learn to walk in oneness with the Lord in order for Him to truly release His character, nature, presence, and power in their lives. For a believer to be in oneness with the Lord they must come into agreement with Him.
Coming into agreement with God and walking with Him is to enter into an intimate heart relationship with Him through faith in His Son, Jesus. Then God becomes the believer’s focus, driving force, passion and zeal, assurance, and confidence in their faith. The results and benefits of walking in agreement with God is that each believer will gain understanding and knowledge of who God is, execute His word, know His will, hear His voice, have discernment in the spirit realm, fulfill one’s purpose, and be an instrument of praise and worship to His glory.
One of the greatest kingdom principles in operation is the power of agreement which releases God’s word, freedom, presence, and promises in your life.
