Agreement is a powerful tool in both earthly and heavenly matters. Agreement is the vehicle by which ideas become legally binding and differences are reconciled.
The dictionary defines agreement in this way:
- Harmony or accordance in opinion or feeling; a position or result of agreeing.
- A negotiated and typically legally binding arrangement between parties as to a course of action.
- The absence of incompatibility between two things; consistency.
The power of agreement has resulted in treaties that were signed, covenants made and unions formed. Throughout the Bible we read about agreements that resulted in treaties and covenants. Scripture is quite clear about how much God honors agreement between two parties.
Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”
Agreement About You
If there is so much power in the agreement between two people on Earth, just think about how much power there is when you come into agreement with the spiritual realm, whether with God, or with the enemy.
My husband and I spent many years doing foster care. Most of our foster kids were teenage boys who had been neglected, abused and abandoned. As horrible as many of the events were in these boys’ pasts, there was an even more tragic event that permeated their lives. The day they came into agreement with the voices of evil that pursued them is where their lives took the most tragic turn.
On more than one occasion when one of our boys had been “triggered” (upset emotionally by some word or deed) causing them to rage against their existence, I would put my arms around them and repeat over and over, “This is not who you are! This is not who you are!”
Somewhere deep inside they knew that the message of being worthless was not true, yet life had beaten that demonic message into the fabric of their identity. The enemy had used the events in their lives as proof of the lie, creating agreement between them and the demonic agenda that was being played out.
One of the enemy’s greatest strategies is to get one of God’s amazing creations to agree with an identity that is different than the one that He gave to them. The enemy takes great pleasure in setting up scenarios that give proof to his lies. Demons love to hang out with hurting and disillusioned people to speak lies about their identity. If he can get them to agree with his lies, then power is released creating legal authority to validate this lie as truth in their life.
Has this ever happened to you or someone you love? Have you ever come into agreement with the demonic voices that want to convince you that you are not who God has said you are? Have you spoken words like, “I am so stupid”, “My life stinks”…or even worse? Those are agreements with the enemy that release power and a basis for accusation and harassment.
Breaking Demonic Agreements
There is good news if you have agreed with the enemy about your life or the life of someone else. YOU CAN BREAK THAT AGREEMENT.
It is not too late to change the course of your life and remove every legal right that this agreement has secured. You can go before the Righteous Judge and ask forgiveness for this agreement, renounce the agreement, break the power of the legal right and then come into agreement with truth and justice on your behalf and on behalf of others.
The Mercy Seat of God is open to you. The blood of Jesus will both cleanse and renew you. He purchased you with His own blood, and has triumphed over every evil power and all accusations against you. The power of His Spirit will set you free from any alliances you have made with lies against your true identity.
In Isaiah 30, God speaks about His people being deceived into entering into an alliance with a plan of the enemy, because they had not asked His counsel, that they might know His truth.
Ah, stubborn children,” declares the Lord, “who carry out a plan, but not mine, and who make an alliance, but not of my Spirit, that they may add sin to sin; who set out to go down to Egypt, without asking for my direction, to take refuge in the protection of Pharaoh and to seek shelter in the shadow of Egypt!
Therefore shall the protection of Pharaoh turn to your shame, and the shelter in the shadow of Egypt to your humiliation. For though his officials are at Zoan and his envoys reach Hanes, everyone comes to shame through a people that cannot profit them, that brings neither help nor profit, but shame and disgrace.”
Drop down to verse 18, and read of God’s desire to intervene on their behalf.
Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you, and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the Lord is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him.
It is time to allow the Lord to be gracious to you and restore you. His justice flows to those who make His truth the only agreement and alliance that they enter into.
Agreeing with Truth
Isaiah 30 goes on to list the results you will see when you break the alliance with every demonic lie and come into agreement with His truth and His ways.
And he will give rain for the seed with which you sow the ground, and bread, the produce of the ground, which will be rich and plenteous. In that day your livestock will graze in large pastures, and the oxen and the donkeys that work the ground will eat seasoned fodder, which has been winnowed with shovel and fork. And on every lofty mountain and every high hill there will be brooks running with water, in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall. Moreover, the light of the moon will be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day when the Lord binds up the brokenness of his people, and heals the wounds inflicted by his blow.
The Lord says to us, “This is the way, walk in it” (verse 21).
Walk in truth! Agree with truth! Speak truth! Who does the LORD say you are? Who does He say the person standing next to you is? Agree with that identity, even if the enemy wants to give “proof” of the opposite in this visible world. It is time for us to agree with the truth of the unseen and bring it down to Earth. There is power in agreement. When you agree with the truth of the Lord it releases the power of the Spirit. You agree with the legal right of Heaven to come to Earth. When you bring another into this agreement along with you it releases even more power.
I encourage you today to break all alliances and agreements with lies and to enter into truth. You are amazing, you are brilliant, you are loved and of great value. Wait for the Lord for He will restore all things as you come into agreement with His truth and walk in it.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
