The Lord’s Release

And when you release them, do not send them away empty-handed.

Deuteronomy 15:13 NIV

In the Old Testament when God laid out to the Israelites how their community would work, he put in a clause to assure that those who found themselves in desperate financial situations would have a way out. If they sold themselves into slavery to survive, they would not have to stay a slave forever – it could only last 7 years. Then their owner must release the slave and send them away with the means to begin a new life.

It was called The Lord’s Release.

Jesus is the fulfillment of The Lord’s Release.

My friend, when you are released to begin to live a free life in Christ, you do not begin your new life empty handed.

God will use what the enemy meant for harm to bring you good and fill your hands with blessings.

God will give you what you need, when you need it.

He may not show you the end of the new road you are on but he will give you the strength to take each step on it.

You are not empty handed as a child of God.

You are provided for, equipped and empowered to walk in freedom.
