Agreement is a powerful tool in building a marriage.
It is essential for you and your spouse to be fully aware that you are partners in your marriage-building process. As partners, one of the most powerful tools you have is the power of agreement.
When you and your spouse get in agreement, you will start to see amazing things happen. Matthew 18:19-20 (NKJV) says, “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.“
The goal for you and your spouse is agreement in thinking. Philippians 2:2 (NIV) talks about “being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.”
The farther apart a couple is in their thinking, the farther apart they will grow in their marriage relationship. However, that doesn’t mean you will always see things eye-to-eye. It means that when it comes to planning and building your life together, you are of one mind, headed in the same direction with the same goals. There is nothing more satisfying than accomplishing goals together!
Marriage is one of the greatest partnerships on the planet! A husband and wife that walk in agreement can achieve great things. Ecclesiastes 4:9 (NLT) says, “Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed.” Being in agreement doesn’t mean you’ll always see things the same way. It means you have a common goal and purpose, and together, you help each other succeed.
THE TAKE AWAY
Take time with your spouse and write down some goals for your marriage and family that you can get in agreement on. Pray and confess the Word over them. As you walk together in agreement, there is nothing you can’t accomplish together!
