There’s been a word in my spirit for a bit now, and I’ve been chewing on it. That word is “reconciliation”. God is a reconciler – not only has He provided a way to reconcile us to Him through Jesus’ death and resurrection – but He also is a reconciler of human relationships.
God desires healing within sibling relationships. There are many siblings that have spent years, or even a lifetime, estranged from each other – and not only those physically estranged, but those who live in close proximity yet are emotionally estranged as well. God wants you to know He is bridging the gap between siblings and building a pathway for His peace to fill the broken places. He has made a new day and filled it with new mercy for each person to begin to heal.
You may feel as though you are extremely different from each other, but the same blood runs through your veins and carries with it a family history. You are united by blood and carry the DNA traits of your parents uniquely assigned to you. You may have been offended and/or been rejected by each other, but I am here to tell you that God is removing those roots of offense and rejection. There has been a stirring in your spirit to be reconciled to your siblings, but you still have fear and you hold on to past hurts. God is telling you to lay them down. He is pulling them out, but He requires you to lay them down and walk away. Today is a new day, this is a new beginning and He has a blessing of reconciliation for you! His perfect love casts out fear!
Just as Christ reconciled us to the Father, Christ is well able to reconcile us to each other. His blood runs through our veins and we have His mind. Move forward in grace and mercy and begin to allow your sibling relationships to be healed.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:17-19 NKJV).
