Day 20—Restore Relationships

All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation…–2 Corinthians 5:18

Today as you continue in this fast and prayer ask the Holy Spirit to help you restore any of your relationships that you know ended in an abrupt way. You may not be angry or hold any ill feeling towards the person but maybe you feel as if they are upset with you. Sometimes the enemy blinds us into thinking that someone is angry at us or you have done something wrong to them.

Walk in boldness today and with help of the Holy Spirit go to that person and say “can we talk”. Don’t be tricked by your own thoughts, it may not be what you think. How many people do you know are not communicating with distant loved ones just because they think that the other person is mad at them when in fact it’s not that way at all?

Maybe they are waiting on you to make the first move.

Prayer for Today

Father, today I ask you to help me take all of my thoughts captive to the obedience of Jesus Christ. Help me Lord to see all people the way you see them. Help me Lord to be a person of reconciliation, restoring all that may have been lost in the relationships with others you have place in my life. I ask You Father to restore a good relationship between me and all of my family, friends, co-workers, and others.
