In Mark 4:26-29, the Bible says “So is the Kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground; and should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how.” In this beautiful parable, God not only shows us what the Kingdom is like, He also shows us how to access the blessings in the Kingdom. It all begins with the RELEASE.
Webster’s dictionary defines “release” as allowing or enabling something to escape from confinement; to set free; to allow something to move, act, or flow freely. EVERY HARVEST BEGINS WITH A RELEASE! The seed, soil, and season can be right; but until you release the seed there will be no harvest.
Any athlete will tell you how important the RELEASE is. Whether you are throwing, kicking, or hitting a ball, the release is the most important part of the process. The release is the moment of truth that determines both the DIRECTION and the VELOCITY of the ball.
Where the seed goes and how fast it gets there are both critical elements that are determined by your RELEASE! If you don’t let go at the right time in the right place, your seed might miss the mark…and you might miss your opportunity for a breakthrough!
I want to encourage your FAITH as you prepare to RELEASE your seed with us on Easter Sunday. It will not miss the mark!
