Reader Opinion: Inspired by the people

After Caucus night, we can still be heard.

Our nation needs men and women to stand for it. Direction/restoration/healing ... remember what Lady Liberty holds? I am so inspired by the people who not only attended the caucuses, but helped me there. Thank you.

From a daily devotional: God keeps word.

Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on Earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. (Matt. 18:19-20)

The negative side of Matthew 18:19 and 20 is that if you don't agree, it won't be done. Isn't that simple?

You see, we try to make the truth of God so complicated, but he has made it so simple. Time and time again, as I have acted on these verses of scripture-as I have agreed with someone in prayer-such marvelous things have happened. And it will work for you too!

God said that he watches over his word to make it good. Jeremiah 1:12 says, "...for I will hasten my word to perform it." The margin says, "I watch over my word to perform it."

If we would look for as many reasons for God to keep his word and for it to work as we do for it not to work, God's word would always work for us. Many times we are hunting around for something negative, saying, "Well, maybe it wasn't the will of God after all."

Then why did Jesus say, "If two of you shall agree, it shall be done"?
