Acts 2:1,4 (KJV) 1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Notice that they were all in one accord! Just what does that mean?
If you’ve ever been in a meeting when decisions had to be made and tried to get everyone on the same page, you know how challenging it can be! However, when people are in agreement, how wonderful that is!
It was on the day of Pentecost that they were in one accord. The apostles and disciples were in the upper room, all 120 of them, and they were all in one accord waiting for the Holy Spirit. And that’s when “suddenly” happened!
It’s the same in Acts 5:12 when they were in one accord – signs and wonders happened.
In Ps. 133, we see that when the people were in unity – the Lord commanded the blessing on them.
Being in one accord means to be unified in agreement about the same thing, to be on the same page. That’s when signs, wonders, and miracles happen. Of course, I’m talking about being in agreement on God’s Word. That’s when we see manifestation come forth. And many times it simply means that you are in agreement with God’s Word.
Too many times I’ve witnessed people praying for healing, even laying on of hands, but they weren’t agreeing with God’s Word. And, of course, nothing happened. It’s a sad sight!
Really – how hard is it to agree with what Almighty God has said? Why do people think they’re smarter than God and know more than He does about any given situation? How many universes have they created?
It’s not even in us to direct our own ways! We need to look to the Lord who lights our darkness and makes the crooked places straight.
If we want to see the manifestation of signs, wonders, and miracles from God, we need to get in agreement with what He has said in His Word and believe it with our whole heart.
The best is yet to come!
Psalm 133:1-3 (KJV) 1
