Faith for the Next Step

AGREEMENT REMOVES THE IMPOSSIBLE
Jeremiah 32:27 NKJV
“Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?
Luke 1:37 AMPC
For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfilment.
Is anything too difficult for the LORD? At the appointed time I will return to you–in about a year–and Sarah will have a son
“It is a blessed thing to learn that God’s word can never fail. Never harken to human plans. God can work mightily when you persist in believing Him in spite of discouragements from the human standpoint…I am not moved by what I see. I am moved only by what I believe. No man considers how he feels if he believes. The man who believes God has it.”
– Smith Wigglesworth
The Prayer of Agreement
Matthew 18:18–20 NKJV
“Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
19 “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. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”
Amos 3:3 NKJV
Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?
CLEARLY DEFINE THE GOAL
Together you ask, taking possession of your prayer.
Now the whole earth had one language and the same words.
Genesis 11:4-6 ESV
Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be dispersed over the face of the whole earth.” 5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of man had built. 6And the LORD said, “Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them.
“Faith talks in the language of God. Doubt talks in the language of man.” – E.W. Kenyon
Mark 11:22–23 NKJV
So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. 23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.
DON’T CURSE IT
Proverbs 18:20–21 NKJV
A man’s stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth; From the produce of his lips he shall be filled. 21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it will eat its fruit.
STAY OUT OF STRIFE
ASK FOR SEED TO SOW
2 Corinthians 9:6–11 NKJV
But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 7 So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. 9 As it is written:
“He has dispersed abroad,
He has given to the poor;
His righteousness endures forever.”
10 Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness, 11 while you are enriched in everything for all liberality, which causes thanksgiving through us to God.
– He has seed for you.
– He will multiply the seed you have sown.
– Increase your fruits of righteousness.
– Together we will thank God for what He is doing through us.
Mark 11:24 NKJV
Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
