Amos 3:3King James Version (KJV)

Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

#3212 OT - Hebrew
a primitive root (compare 'halak' (1980)); to walk (literally or figuratively); causatively, to carry (in various senses):--X again, away, bear, bring, carry (away), come (away), depart, flow, + follow(-ing), get (away, hence, him), (cause to, made) go (away, -ing, -ne, one's way, out), grow, lead (forth), let down, march, prosper, + pursue, cause to run, spread, take away ((-journey)), vanish, (cause to) walk(-ing), wax, X be weak.

"...except they be agreed..." One of the two has to lead. The other must accept that and follow.

Matthew 11:28King James Version (KJV)

28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Quit fighting the yoke and start pulling with Jesus. Trust me-God's not dumb enough to let us lead! But he is gracious, mercyful and long suffering. Don't fight. Pull together with him... his way!
Try it with your Pastor.

Mt 14:25 (KJV)     "And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them. WALKING on the sea."

     This is also the same Greek word that is used in Eph 2:10 (KJV) WALK.

     "For we are his (God's" workmanship created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should WALK in them."

     Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible lists this Greek word as #4043 PERIPATIO; to tread all around i.e. WALK at large (espec. as PROOF OF ABILITY)-go, be occupied with, walk (about).

     In the 4 Gospels this meaning for WALK is used 37  out of 41 times as walk, walked, walkedst, walketh and walking.

     So, next time you are walking around your Patio wondering how you're going to accomplish what Jesus has given you to do, turn to the one that WALKED on the sea and ask for His help. Then you too can show the world that your WALK has proof of ability-for the Glory of God.
