Get in Step

Scripture:
Amos 3:3

Can two walk together except they be agreed? .

Observation
This is one of those questions that the response seems rather obvious, no. It is impossible to walk with someone without agreement. We must be on the same page to expect success in that relationship. That is what the prophet is trying to tell us about our relationship with God, get in step. When God is headed in one direction and we’re headed another the relationship does not work.

Application
Too often we tell God, okay Lord, here is what I want to do, come with me and please, bless this mess. We must change that focus, He wants us to be more like Him, consult Him before we set those plans in concrete. He wants us to go where He is going and surprise, we’ll end up getting what we desire anyway. When we live our lives in agreement with God that’s living the Christian life to its fullest.

Prayer
Father I thank you for the desire to walk in step with you. I desire that my every thought and action line up with your word. Even when I don’t understand or agree, I pray for the willingness to set my plans aside and follow yours. Thank you for your patience and your eternal love for me. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
