THE WEEKLY WORD

Written by Pastor Sue Lynch  

 

DO YOU AGREE WITH GOD

 

Amos 3:3“Can two walk together, except they be agreed?”

 

      Amos was an Old Testament prophet.  He was a herdsman from a town called Te-ko’a. He lived in the days of a great Israeli king called Uz-zi’ah.  Also, in his days Israel experienced a great earthquake.  However, the Lord called him to prophecy to his kinsmen and challenge them to get right with God Almighty, whom they knew was all powerful and mighty to save.

         In our scripture reading today, God is speaking in the first person, through the prophet Amos.  He says this awesome word to the children of Israel: “You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.  Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” Amos 3:2,3.  What the Lord is saying is simply this: You know me and have been greatly shown my awesome acts among you.  And you still sin grievously against Me and My word.  Therefore, I am going to have to punish you, as any good parent would do to a stubborn rebellious child.  How can you and I walk together unless you will agree with My word and My promises.  How can I perform My word among you unless you will believe and obey it.  It takes two to agree for My word to be made known in the earth.”

         This is a definite law that God the Father has spoken into existence.  We are not making up the rules, but He has set them into effect, and when we obey them, things happen.  For example: Let’s say that you have been praying for salvation to come to your loved one, and a good amount of time has gone by and they are still very resistant to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  A voice comes to you and says, “give up, they will never listen to the Lord.  They are too deep into sin to want to be saved.”  If you do give up praying, you are agreeing with the devil and your lazy negative flesh.  You will never see them come into the kingdom of God.  But if you tell the devil, “you are a liar, my God’s word tells me: “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God” Philippians 4:6.  Never does the Lord tell us to quit!  Or perhaps your finances are hurting and you have been trusting in the Lord and nothing seems to come.  Have you been agreeing with God’s word? “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus” Philippians 4:19. 

         Why not listen to God’s word today and agree with Him in prayer over your needs.  You will be blessed to see how quickly He will answer.  Amen!
