Daily Discovering the Blessing

The Prayer of Agreement (Matthew 18:19) is stipulated by our Lord Jesus to result in the successful manifestation of “whatever{anything and everything}” that is requested. That is certainly all-encompassing!

When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it, My Father in Heaven goes into action. (Message Bible)

There is faith-fueled agreement in prayer with other believers, and there is also personal, heart-felt, voice activated agreement with God. We can “agree {harmonize together, make a symphony together}” with our brothers and sisters in Christ, but we can also daily make a symphony together with our Abba. Hebrews 11:2 says:

By faith we understand that the worlds (during the successive ages) were framed (fashioned, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose) by the Word of God, so that what we see was not made put of things which are visible.

Prompted by faith, urged on by faith, we speak forth God’s Word and we fashion, put in order, and equip for its intended purpose our future days. We speak not of what we see before us:

Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting. (2 Corinthians 4:18)

We speak God’s Word, His promises. That is His provided ammunition for that which attempts to defeat us. We observe something before us that does not line up with God’s Word – something “less than” in terms of His covenant with His people; something that denies what Jesus already purchased on our behalf through His life and sacrificial death; something the enemy would like us to accept and receive. And we follow the faith example of our forefather Abraham:

He didn’t tiptoe around God’s promise asking cautiously skeptical questions. He plunged into the promise and came up strong, ready for God, sure that God would make good on what He said. (Romans 4:21 – Message Bible)

It takes work to write a symphony with God – the daily music score of our lives. For we must dig deeply into the Word, mining as for hidden treasure. (Proverbs 2:4) We can only appropriate from God’s Word that which we know is there. We cannot declare that He will make good on what He has said if we don’t know that He has said it. We can only stand in faith on a particular issue if we have made ourselves aware of His mind on the matter. Then the symphony writing may begin!

Faith’s firm foundation is established upon this principle; confronting adversity with the Word of God; speaking forth His promises into the discordance we may encounter. The Holy Spirit is the conductor of this symphony, bringing to our remembrance everything God has told us regarding His care and provision and expectation for His kids. (John 14:26)

And we speak it forth in faith as God alertly and actively watches over that Word to perform it. (Jeremiah 1:12) Honor our Father by speaking forth His Word to frame, fashion, put in order, and equip your future days, to thwart the enemy’s intentions, and to “receive and carry away {and enjoy to the full what is promised} (Hebrews 10:36)
