United we Stand – Open Heavens Devotional 3rd July 2019 by Pst. E. A. Adeboye.
Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in Heaven. – Matthew 18:19
Whenever the devil wants to frustrate the agenda of God’s children, he applies the tactic of “divide and conquer”, knowing that he stands no chance against us whenever we walk in unity of purpose. We must therefore stop the enemy in his tracks by fostering unity among ourselves. It is unfortunate that the devil pays closer attention to the word of God than we do.

He knows the power in God’s word and that is why he tries to make us trivialise it. Today’s memory verse is a scripture that packs enormous power. If we walk in it, we will surely devastate the devil’s kingdom.
Beloved, if just two of us can perform great feats simply by uniting and agreeing on what we want to happen, what happens when three, four, ten, twenty, fifty or hundred of us do the same? No doubt, the results would be phenomenal! In Genesis 11:6, the Almighty God said something significant, which those of us who want to do exploits for Him must take note of. He said:
“…Behold,the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.”
In a nutshell, this scripture encapsulates and confirms the power of unity. God takes the issue very seriously that he says in Matthew 5:23-24:
“Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.”
Great unity exists among the Godhead, and as carriers of God’s image, we also are capable of living in unity if we choose to. Indeed, if you want to increase your productivity, keep the unity of the Spirit with those God has made to be your fellow labourers (Ephesians 4:3).The early Church was able to turn the world upside down for Jesus because they were one heart and soul (Acts 4:32).

When they prayed, they got results because they prayed in unity. Acts 4:31 records what happened when they came together to pray:
“And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.”
Unfortunately, the church today prays without similar results because we are not united in the Spirit. Whenever the devil discovers our broken chain, he exploits it. May the Lord return brotherly love back to His church in Jesus’ Name.
