“If Two of You Agree”
By Joel Osteen - Oct 22, 2021
We're all believing for a dream to come to pass, or praying for a situation to turn around, trusting that God is working. But something more powerful happens when you have someone agree with you for what you're believing for. Jesus says, "If two of you agree on earth concerning anything that you ask, it will be done by My Father in heaven" (Matthew 18:19). He doesn't say, "Just believe for yourself, and it will happen." He says, "Find someone who will come into agreement with you." He was showing us the power of agreement.

When you're believing for something, you need people with bold faith, not people who say, "I don't see how that can happen. You really think you'll get well?" Doubters are a dime a dozen. You need people who say, "If you're bold enough to believe it, I'm bold enough to agree with you." You need a faith partner, someone who will take the limits off God with you, who will believe for what looks impossible. When you come into agreement, it releases favor in a new way--healing, breakthroughs, abundance that you won't see by yourself.

The Scripture says, "All of God's promises have their yes in Christ. That is why we say Amen through Him to the glory of God" (2 Corinthians 1:20). When God puts a promise in your heart and you believe it, you have the yes, and you know it&'s going to happen. But you need to find the amen--someone to agree with you who says, "You have the yes and believe God is restoring health to you. I have the amen. I agree with you that healing is coming." Or maybe you believe that you'll break an addiction. You have the yes and believe that no weapon formed against you will prosper. Now find the amen, not an "Oh no. You really think so?"

God's promises are not "yes and oh no," they are "yes and amen." You need to come out of "oh no" agreements with negative people who doubt, water down your faith, and cause you to get discouraged. If you get rid of the "oh no" people, God will send you "amen" people who say, "You believe the addiction can't control you. You have the yes, and I have the amen. I agree that whom the Son sets free is free indeed." When you have a faith partner, someone who will add the amen, it doesn't just encourage you, but it causes angels to go to work, miracles are set in motion, favor is released.

Come into agreement with someone who ignites your faith, someone who inspires you to keep believing, even when it seems impossible. There's power in agreement.
