RELEASE means to allow or enable to escape from confinement; to set free . It also means to remove restrictions or obligations from someone so that they can be available for other activity. In media and communications, to release is to allow art or information to be made generally available. In legal or banking terms, release means to remit or discharge a debt, surrender a right, or make over property or money to another person or entity. As we close out 2015, there are things from which we need to be released, in order to release what God has placed inside of us!
At the end of every seven years, the debts of all Israelites had to be canceled within their ranks. This was called “The Lord’s Release“ (KJV):
God did not want His people to be in debt or captivity to one another. He desired His covenant blessing to be felt by everyone, from the greatest to the least. He wanted a spirit of generosity to extend even to the poor of the nation. Indebtedness often included slavery or indentured servitude. The Lord abolished indefinite indebtedness by commanding His people to release those whom they were holding hostage for other activity. Is there someone whom you’re holding in a literal debt or figurative unforgiveness? Release them!
It is time for the Lord’s release! Have you been holding yourself hostage, drudging up the failures of your past? RELEASE! Been procrastinating and afraid to unveil to the world what God has given you to share? RELEASE! Whatever is holding you back, or you are holding back, RELEASE IT!
