You are welcome to another glorious month. That which the Lord has started doing in your families and homes shall abide until the day of our Lord Jesus Christ! This month, I will be teaching on ‘Tips For An Exciting Marriage’. This week, I want to share with you ‘The Power of Agreement’.
To enjoy an exciting marriage and all-round family dominion, it is important that husband and wife must always be in agreement, as it is the key that unlocks the door to family dominion. Disagreement between husband and wife shuts the door to family dominion. God’s Word says, How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up (Deuteronomy 32:30)? Any man who is alone can easily be overcome, and that is why in marriage, husband and wife become one being. They are able to exercise dominion over all situations of life. By the marriage union, they enter into the strongest human agreement and are able to accomplish whatever they desire. God’s Word says, Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven (Matthew 18:19). An agreement is when the husband and wife agree as touching anything on earth, and it will be done for them by their Father in heaven. The root of dominion is found in marriage; therefore, couples who know how to operate the marriage covenant enjoy dominion. The Bible says, … have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth (Genesis 1:28).The family was established to have dominion; that is, to have and exercise control. It was established to be in control of and not under the control of circumstances and situations of life. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 says, Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Today, the struggles and ultimate failure experienced in many families is traceable to lack of agreement in the home. The devil takes special delight in breaking down the agreement in homes because he knows that once disagreement has crept in between a couple, their dominion is at stake.
Look at this testimony:
By proxy, I married my husband and living together became very strenuous, but God kept me there anyhow. I was not comfortable, and I suffered various hurts. However, in December 1995, during the convention/dedication, I attended the seminar session on marital bliss, and Pastor (Mrs) Faith Oyedepo ministered. When it was time for prayers, she joined the prayers at my side and prayed that all that had sustained hurts in their marriages receive their healings; tears welled up in my eyes.
The second day, I met with her in the corridor, and she strangely put her hand on my shoulder like an old friend. It was strange because I was not in ‘close circuit’ with her. Lo and behold, I found myself thinking about my husband and feeling relaxed from that very moment. I could then call him ‘my husband’ without any inhibitions or second thoughts. Strangely, he too changed and started telling me that my food was delicious. Also, whenever he came home, he would buy something for me; this he had not done for over 15 to 16 years. Whenever I wanted to manage the soup, he would say ‘No!’ and provide money for another soup. I give God all the glory!’ — Ajanaku A. O.
Remember, marriage is meant for agreement, not for disagreement. Therefore, until husband and wife are in agreement, family dominion will be impossible. However, the grace to be able to agree with your spouse can only come when you agree with God, and that is by surrendering your life to Him (Amos 3:3). If you are not born again, you cannot enjoy the fulfilment God has preserved for those who love Him in marriage. So, if you will confess your sins and accept Jesus as your Lord and personal Saviour, you will experience a great change in your life and marriage. Please say this simple prayer in faith: Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me my sins and cleanse me with Your Blood. I accept You as my Lord and personal Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for delivering me from sin and satan to serve the living God, and thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.
Congratulations, you are now born again and a child of God. He loves you and will never leave or forsake you. With this, you are guaranteed all-round rest and peace, in Jesus name!
