Agreement with the Will of God

Pastor Steve TaylorFasting 2016

Can two walk together, unless they are agreed? –Amos 3:3
In the heart of every believer is the desire to walk closely with God. We know that He, too, desires a close relationship with each one of us. A key to having a strong level of spiritual intimacy with God is living in agreement with His will for your life.
In Genesis 5:22, we read of Enoch and see that his life modeled a long journey, walking consistently with God, for it says, “Enoch walked with God three hundred years.” Enoch lived a powerful life. He was a man who walked in agreement with God’s will and lived a life pleasing to God (Hebrews 11:5). The level of our agreement with God will determine the degree of closeness in our walk with Him.
It is one thing to know God’s will for our lives; it’s another to live in agreement with His will. In order to enjoy the best life that God has for us, we must first understand that God does not change, but we sometimes must. Let’s earnestly seek to know and agree with God’s will.
I believe firmly that the moment our hearts are emptied of pride and selfishness and ambition and everything that is contrary to God’s law, the Holy Spirit will fill every corner of our hearts. But if we are full of pride and conceit and ambition and the world, there is no room for the Spirit of God. We must be emptied before we can be filled. —D.L. Moody
Bible Reading: Psalm 32
Prayer Focus: Pray today that you can walk in agreement with God. Confess (agree with God) those things that hinder your pursuit of God and enjoy the life He desires you to have in Christ.
