With a purpose, a promise, we know what to get into agreement with and we know what to target with prayer. But it is possible to get into agreement with it in the prayer closet and get out of agreement with it in day-to-day struggles and conversations. It comes down to what we are focused on and what has caused us to be focused upon it. (Prov.3:5-6)
The Lord is challenging those who have been caught up in the spirit of breaking covenants and ignoring covenants; And those who have been robbed of the value and benefits of covenant will regard covenant as a must, will cling to people and opportunities, will repent, will rethink and will rebuild the walls that have been broken down.
Ps.51:7-15, TPT “Purify my conscience! Make this leper clean again! Wash me in your love until I am pure in heart. 8 Satisfy me in your sweetness, and my song of joy will return. The places within me you have crushed will rejoice in your healing touch 9 Hide my sins from your face; erase all my guilt by your saving grace. 10 Create a new, clean heart within me. Fill me with pure thoughts and holy desires, ready to please you.”
A farmer we know had a new Doberman puppy. One morning the puppy was in the barn with the horse. The farmer’s wife heard the horse stomping around and then heard a desperate yelp from the puppy! She ran into the barn and found the tiny puppy limp and lifeless. She could see no wound, but the small pet lay in the puddle of released bowels she knew to be a sign of sudden death. She rushed the unresponsive puppy to the vet. The vet took one look at the dog and said, “The dog is dead. There is nothing I can do.”
When the farmer returned, his wife broke the news that his new puppy was on the back porch dead. The farmer knelt beside the stiff little body and studied the once shiny eyes now glazed in a dead stare. He called her name, “Princess.” He watched the motionless pup intently. Moments later, she moved her tail slightly. He called her name again, “Princess,” and began to stroke her. The tiny tail broke into a full swing, lifting her rear off the ground into a full wag! When he called her name, she suddenly agreed with her identity and purpose and future instead of what might have been. We will never know if the horse actually kicked her or just came close. Either way, the dog who thought she was dead overcame the trauma of the giant in the barn and lived to fulfill her purpose, becoming the best watch dog the farmer ever had.
Sometimes all our enemy has to do is show up. We give up because of OPPOSITION. Sometimes all he has to do is be taller. We give up because of INTIMIDATION. Sometimes all he has to do is cast a shadow over us. We give up because of DOUBTS. Sometimes all he has to do is be louder than hope. We give up because of IMPOSSIBILITIES. Sometimes all he has to do is out last us. We give up because of LACK of PERSEVERANCE. Sometimes all our enemy has to do is scare us with what might have been. If in shock we AGREE, he is successful. It is not what the enemy takes, it is what we give over! Some things were given over in past generations, but we can even take those things back through agreeing with our Redeemer!
(Kathy Gabler)—Faith is the key to His pleasure (Heb.11:6) because faith is how we receive the deposits of His love or the changes His will causes or the manifestations of His Original Intent in our lives. It brings God pleasure for people to experience His good will toward men and His beauty for ashes and His making the impossible possible. Our faith and trust in Him is our stand of agreement that opens the earth and the circumstances and the day and the moment to Him. So, our complete confidence in Him is like a portal for His entry and workings in our life, and that pleases Him.
Have you watched the news lately? There seem to be squabbles and disagreement at every level of government, between nations, races and economic strata. There must be a place where men and women, boys and girls can go and experience the opposite of the stress of such an atmosphere. May your home be a place of agreement, where squabbles and disagreement can’t find dwelling places. May it be the place of “where two or three are gathered in my Name” (Matt.18:20) becomes the place of “all things are possible” (Mk.9:23). (Ps.128:3, GNB) “Your wife will be like a fruitful vine in your home, and your children will be like young olive trees around your table.” We are praying you discover daily that your home is a place of productive agreement.
(Kathy Gabler) — “Give us this day our daily bread” (Matt.6:11). . . This declaration is not a frugal request for bread crumbs to fight off hunger and poverty; rather it is an agreement with unlimited means for whatever is needed to walk out our purpose and bring glory to our Father. He knows not only what we are to accomplish and steward in our day, but also in our lifetime, and He also knows the provision and timing of portions necessary to do so. “Give us this day our daily bread” is deliberate agreement with our Father’s apportioning for life and purpose on a daily basis. As sons we steward relationships, money, circumstances, business and mandates. If we trust Father to apportion our daily provision, that provision will be neither limited nor wasteful, but I believe understanding this as a declaration of agreement will definitely blow our doors with the changes it brings to our lives. That prayer is agreement with (1) Father’s economy, (2) Father’s accounting and (3) Father’s agenda.

Your Home #9 — May your home be a place of agreement where squabbles and disagreement can’t find dwelling places. May it be the place of “where two or three are gathered in my Name” becomes the place of “all things are possible”.

“I have held back the enemy by My Hand.”
In this 2 min. audio file, Marty Gabler brings an encouraging word.
As the people of God assemble today, may their ears and
eyes be opened to discover that there are still possibilities in
their God for solutions that no one has ever considered.
May they go forth speaking in agreement with the creative
acts of God in them and in the earth.
“…[Abraham] dared to trust God to do what only God could
do: … with a word make something out of nothing.” (Rom.4:17, Msg)
I think we have probably messed up a breakthrough or two that the Lord was wanting to get through to us. It is likely that we have tended to block its progress by simply agreeing with the Accuser that we don’t deserve it. It is like putting out one hand (close to our body) palm-up to receive and stretching out the other arm with the hand in a blocking fashion. But I declare in this coming season, we will simply stand on our Lord’s mercy and compassion and we are going to get into full agreement with breakthrough.
“And David came to Baal-perazim, and he smote them there, and said, The Lord has broken through my enemies before me, like the bursting out of great waters. So he called the name of that place Baal-perazim [Lord of breaking through].“ (2Sam.5:20, Amp)

Fruit That Overcomes Self-Destruction (Kathy)
I was praying for a lady who was incapacitated and went through months of emergency room runs, hospital stays and testing, but the doctors could not bring the sickness to resolve or even a clear diagnosis. As I was praying, the Spirit of God revealed what the doctors were looking for: they were looking for her self-destruct button. Where is your self-destruct button? More importantly, why is it there? Is it embedded in disappointment, self-pity, deceit, desperation, selfishness, unforgiveness, bitterness, anger or guilt? Once your self-destruct button is pushed, can you recognize how you feel or how you feed destruction? Have you ever connected the dots to realize that agreement feeds destruction and agreement comes with every unkind word and action, every foul mood freely expressed, every dark habit or pattern and every self-justification when you are wrong?
Self-control is a fruit of the Spirit and it is a powerful expression of self-government, a powerful, non-carnal weapon to defeat enemy strategies and strongholds. Choices concerning our attitude, words and behavior take dominion eventually. Over time, every ruling force and condition (good or bad, healthy or destructive) gets in control through attitude, words and behavior, and all three begin with thoughts and feelings. The one-two punch that defeats self-destruction is: 1) recognize destructive feelings and discern dark thoughts, and 2) refuse to be controlled by them or behave as they dictate. Self-government becomes our weapon against self-destruction.

Speak Out The NO! (Kathy)
Let him that hath an ear hear. If we truly hear and understand this promise from God in Isaiah 54:15,17 (The Message: “If anyone attacks you, don’t for a moment suppose that I sent them, And if any should attack, nothing will come of it. . . but no weapon that can hurt you has ever been forged. Any accuser who takes you to court will be dismissed as a liar. This is what GOD’s servants can expect. I’ll see to it that everything works out for the best.” GOD’s Decree.”), we will respond. Truth is activated by action to cause results in our life, and the essential action is agreement. Even powerful truth lies dormant as potential until it is activated through our embrace and agreement. The very least we should do when darkness threatens our corner of the world and spews its propaganda is to speak out a resounding NO!
Destiny Determines Dynamic
The Church is not to be merely congregational, i.e., simply those who congregate with an eye toward receiving. By definition of the biblical term for “church” (ecclesia), when we assemble together it is not for the purpose of crying out for blessings. Many congregants, in the religious reality of our day, gather and pay their dues so that leadership can do “to them” and “for them.” Perhaps the reason for much dissatisfaction among congregants with their leadership is because we gather for purposes other than the defined reason for the existence of the ecclesia. Edification is possible between individuals of the Body of Christ (1Thess5:1) and therefore, does not exist as the sole responsibility of professional clergy nor does it require the entire assembly of the membership at a designated time and place. The biblical word for church is “ecclesia”; it is not a word that dropped down out of heaven but was a word used in that culture to describe a legislative body; and so, it was used first by Jesus and later by Paul to help the people of God understand their purpose and dynamic. Gleaning from the biblical meaning of the word for “church,” we can only come to the conclusion that the destiny of the Church is to be congressional (to borrow a term from Dr. Crum). Looking at purpose, those viewing the Church from the inside may be looking for “blessings” for individual adherents. But creation, looking from the outside, is looking for demonstration that affects it. We assemble for the purpose of legislating. Instruction from the Word, worship and edification through the gifts of the Spirit equip us to properly act in keeping with our mandate. Gathering in “one mind and one accord” in the Upper Room, believers received enduement that propelled them to the four corners of the earth so that those who observed them in the city proclaimed, “They have come here and turned the world upside down” — the result of coming to one mind concerning mandate. (Acts1:8;17:6) We pray until we are in alignment with the Father and then we declare and do in this earth what He wills. (Jn 5:19; 12:49). When the sons of God (royalty with authority) manifest (speak & act authoritatively), the expectancy of creation is satisfied having received relief from the oppression of the powers of darkness.
