“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! ... For there the Lord commanded the blessing –Life forevermore.”
__ Psalm 133:1-3 (NKJV)
There is power in unity! Unity is God’s way of doing things. God’s ways always work. Unity equals power!
God commands His blessing in the place of unity whether it be in a marriage, a family, a company, a neighborhood, or a church that is free of strife and discord. What do I mean by a commanded blessing? A commanded blessing is a promise of God that carries within itself the irrevocable power for its fulfillment.
Where there is unity, harmony, and agreement, God will command His blessing. God cannot command His blessing where there is division, disagreement, argumentativeness, competition, jealousy, strife, or disunity. A house divided cannot stand. When unity is present, God is there. He is in it and things will work out better. Where there in unity, there will be blessing.
The Bible says in Matthew 18:20 (NKJV), For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”
Unity and agreement is so important. God honors unity. Jesus spoke about the power of agreement in Matthew 18:19.
“Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.”
Amos 3:3 (KJV) says, “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?”
The Greek word that Jesus used which is translated “agree” comes from the word “symphonize.”
Two are better than one, Because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, For he has no one to help him up.
__ Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
Unity is the key to success whether we are talking about a church group, a sports team, a team at work, a school team, or a business team. It is very important for everyone to get on board and start moving in the same direction in unity.
If you want to be successful in life, it is your responsibility to maintain unity. Unleash the power of unity in your life today!
Prayer: Father God, I ask you to help me to walk in unity in every area of my life. Help me to avoid strife and division everywhere I go. I want to please You. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
