Amos 3:3-7 (NLT)
Can two walk together without agreeing on the direction? Does a lion ever roar in a thicket without first finding a victim? Does a young lion growl in its den without first catching its prey? Does a bird ever get caught in a trap that has no bait? Does a trap spring shut when there’s nothing to catch? When the ram’s horn blows a warning, shouldn’t the people be alarmed? Does disaster come to a city unless the Lord has planned it? Indeed, the Sovereign Lord never does anything until he reveals his plans to his servants the prophets.

This chapter contains a frightening judgment from God against His own chosen people brought on because they did not walk in agreement with Him. They even ended up having “…forgotten how to do right” (v. 10). So displeased was God at their disgrace that He invited their enemies to take front row seats for the spectacle! (v. 9)
A marriage, a family, a company or a government cannot prosper if there is no agreement between them. Nor will you advance properly on your journey through life, much less change the world around you, if you do not travel with God. (That is why this spiritual nourishment comes to you EVERY day.)
The devil is constantly trying to trip you up and detour you away from the destiny God has prepared for you, your city and your nation, but none of his traps will work if your ears are attuned to the alarms sounding from heaven that align your steps so that all goes well. As the song goes, “Put your hand in the hand of the Man Who stilled the waters.”
Pray this way: Father God, thank You for taking care of me every day. I come into agreement with You so that Your advice and alerts keep me from falling into the traps of the devil and missing my destiny. In the name of Jesus, Amen!
