“None of us is as smart as all of us.”-Ken Blanchard
Two is better than one, when two joins as one! Jesus didn’t attempt his mission alone. He immediately sought after a few young men, shared his vision with them, got them to buy into his message and started his mission with their help. Jesus knew that in the Earth, there is a powerful spiritual dynamic that can greatly accelerate the rate of one’s success. It’s called the Law of Agreement.
Jesus Mind Principle #17: The Law of Agreement
The Jesus Mind harnesses the power of agreement. Working with others is like giving yourself a shortcut. The Bible says that 5 can put a 100 to flight but a 100 can put 10,000 to flight! (Leviticus 26:8) It amazes me and saddens me all at the same time when I see so many people working so hard to accomplish their goals all by themselves. Out of fear of rejection or simply believing that they know it all, people ignorantly start works that they can’t finish because of their desire to go “solo” and do it alone. Even Jesus didn’t do it alone! By having connections around you who you can work with and think with, there is a synergy that expands your possibilities for success. In recent years educators have learned the power of collaboration and relationships. Instead of rewarding students for working all by themselves, teachers in schools are now encouraging and celebrating collaborative efforts. You have to move from competition to cooperation. Celebrate great ideas from everyone around you, regardless of the source that gave it. If you combine your thoughts with the thoughts of others, you will come up with thoughts you never had. Where there is agreement, there is the potential for multiplication. “If two of you agree on Earth concerning anything they ask, it will be done by my Father in heaven.” (Matthew 18:19)
The law of two or agreement reveals that God honors unity and moves into every equation where people come together in unity for His name sake. Where there is agreement there is power! Your ability to do what God has called you to do remains in your humility to come into agreement with someone carrying a kindred heart. The world is evolving at a rate of speed faster than we can keep up with personally. You cannot succeed alone. No one ever has, no one ever will. Pray for God to send you motivators, encouragers…people to get into agreement with that will inspire you to give birth to the dreams within your heart. God-given dreams will ALWAYS require the assistance of others. Joseph could never reach the palace without the butler connecting him to the Pharaoh. Moses couldn’t lead Israel without godly advice from those around him, although He was taught directly by God. God will only get involved with a vision that involves the assistance of others. People who you can get into agreement with are vital instruments to your success. Don’t look for it. As you follow your dream, you will find them, and they will find you.
