To agree is to come into harmony. Agreement is the act of coming into harmony.
Wrestling come as we press our humanity, coming to terms with God’s will and its cost and impact upon our lives, just as Jesus did in the garden of Gethsemane.
Jesus has a living relationship with his father in heaven and so when he was pressed to come into harmony (agreement), the wrestling finished quickly, taking just one evening. The more we know our father in heaven, the more we can press in with confidence knowing we will come into agreement with God’s will (his plans and purposes) in a given situation.
These days even born again Christians don’t have an active, living relationship with their heavenly father and so when pressed they look at God through the eyes of another, maybe a well meaning pastor, a Sunday school teacher or worst the examples of authority figures they do know. Chances are no one in their right mind would want to come into agreement with a legalistic, vindictive God as they portray him, not even Jesus!
The key to coming into agreement is in having an active, living relationship with your heavenly father. God will guard your wrestling as He did with Jesus, for even the guards did not show up to arrest Jesus until after the son of God was in agreement with his father in heaven!
