Coming into Agreement with Your Spouse ~~ Joyce Meyers 2/27/13

This is for the Married couples and those who are thinking about getting married..but wait, I guess it could be for those of us who are divorced because we might just get married again someday. Joyce states it plain and simple. Live and Learn is what I am doing…..#peace and #enjoy.

The Bible says that there is power in agreement. This is especially true of marriage. My husband, Dave, and I have personalities that are about as opposite as we could get. Yet, God has brought us more and more together so that we are starting to think more alike and want more of the same things every day. We still have two different personalities, but now we can see that God brought our differences together on purpose.

If you want to have power in your marriage and in your prayer life, then you have to get along. The big question is: How can a disagreeing couple learn to agree? Agreement comes when the people involved stop being selfish. Selfishness is an immature inward focus. The key is to care about what the other person needs, be willing to humble yourself, and do what you can to meet those needs.

When this happens, you can live together in agreement before the Lord, and ‘wherever two or three are gathered’ in His name, God is there with them. So make a choice with your spouse today to pursue agreement and unity before the Lord.

Prayer Starter: God, I want to experience the power of agreement in my marriage. Help us to live selflessly so that we can effectively gather together in Your name.

GOD is Untying Your Knots One at a Time — Joyce Meyers Devotionals

Picture your life as a jumble of shoestrings all tied up in knots, each shoestring a different color. Each knot represents a problem, and the process of untangling those knots and straightening out those problems is going to take a bit of time and effort. It took a long time to tie all those knots, and it will take some time to straighten them all out.

In our modern, instantaneous society, we tend to jump from one thing to another, but God never gets in a hurry. He never quits or runs out of patience. He will deal with us about one particular thing, and then He will let us rest for a while, but not too long. Soon He will come back and begin to work on something else. He will continue until, one by one, our knots are all untied.

If it sometimes seems that you’re not making any progress, it’s because the Lord is untying your knots one at a time. Let His patience develop in you, and sooner or later, you will see victory in your life and experience the freedom you have wanted for so long.

Prayer Starter: God, I’m so glad that You can work out all of my knots and get my life straightened out. Help me to develop steadfastness and patience as You work continually in my life.
