And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken anything from any man by false accusation I restore him fourfold. Luke 19:8
Restitution is the act of making right that which has been wrongly taken, and also returning that which you may have stolen or converted to your own use which belong to others or to your place of work. This is a very important aspect of Christianity that proves genuine salvation. This also includes your tithes and first fruits, the non-payments of which is robbery. Restitution includes reconciling with people who may have quarreled with you in the past. We must make restitution for all lies and things wrongly said about anyone which have resulted in constant trouble for the person involved. Every marriage contracted contrary to the standards of the Bible must be visited and reviewed. There are some sensitive cases of restitution that you do not carry out alone. In such cases you must seek counsel from those who are spiritually matured than you. They will guide you through the help of the Holy Spirit on the appropriate way to go about it. When you obey God by making restitution, you will receive His favor. Also, when you restitute your ways, you will receive speedy answers to all your prayers. This is because you have made peace with God and you have a clear conscience towards man. When you make restitution you will no longer live under the bondage of fear, because there is nothing else to hide.
BIBLE READING: Luke 19:1-10
PRAYER: O Lord help me to prayerfully make restitution in every applicable area of my life in Jesus name, Amen.
