Matthew 18:19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
Agreement is a powerful weapon. This is why the enemy will come into our marriages and try to get us disagree about everything. I’m in no way saying that you are to do everything the same way, but you should come to an understanding with one another and agree on the terms of each situation. All of us come from different upbringings and each of us have been taught differently how to cook, wash the dishes, clean the bathroom, etc. These things should not cause turmoil in your household. Communication is key. Talking (and listening) to each other to come up with a plan of action to run your house efficiently will create an atmosphere of peace in your home. Your way is not the only way that gets the same result and you shouldn’t allow the enemy to frustrate you over the small stuff (I have to continuously tell myself this). Handling the bills, raising the kids, making major purchases are things that need to be handled with care. Discover each other’s gifts and run your household accordingly. Imagine a butterfly trying to fly if one wing was flying really fast but the other is going really slow. It would be going nowhere fast. That is how we look sometimes in our marriages. There will be times when we may need to slow down to wait for our spouse to catch up and other times when we must pick up the pace to catch up. Once we catch a rhythm, we can smoothly flutter and rise above every situation. Find time to pray TOGETHER!
Deuteronomy 32:30 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up?
Praying together increases your supernatural power from 1thousand to 10 thousand! We all need this kind of power in our homes. Praying together fortifies the wall around our homes and creates unity in the spirit by the bond of peace!
Father, we thank you for the weapon of agreement that you have given us. Show us how to humble ourselves. Show us your plans for our marriages and help us come into agreement with it. Give us strategy on how to see the enemy’s plans for division and frustration before they creep into our households. Help us be ones that communicate well, talking and listening with love and respect. Make our marriages reflect your Glory in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen!
