The Power of Release

Posted on Posted in devotions

“Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you” 1 Peter 5:7.

When you are set on fulfilling God’s purpose for your life, you must remember to release people and situations to God. Why? Because it will destroy you and will hinder your spiritual progress if you don’t. Obey God and release them. You can’t free them by your power. You can’t deliver anyone in your own strength. You can’t change anything about that situation by yourself. You can’t, but God can. And if anything miraculous is going to happen, it’s going to be by the power of God’s Holy Spirit.

Don’t take upon yourself a responsibility God didn’t give you. Don’t worry yourself trying to figure out what you can do to save them. Do only what God tells you to do and then release it to Him. I know it’s tough, but you must know that God cares for that person AND for you. Give it to Him and stand back and watch Him work.

God is saying by His Spirit, “I will do what I promised. Trust Me. Entrust them to Me. I can go where you can’t. I can see where You can’t. Nothing is hidden from Me. Release them to Me. Give it all to Me and You will see Me demonstrate My love and My power in ways You thought were impossible.”

A Challenge for You: Make a list of every person you are carrying on your heart and mind. Go down the list and say, “Lord, I release ____(say their name)___ to You. I entrust them to Your care. Have Your way in their lives. In Jesus name.”

Prayer: Father God, I care so much for the people in my life, and I want to see them experience the life and freedom that I am experiencing in You. I exercise the power You have given me through Jesus and I release them by faith into Your care. I trust You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

  1. Jehovah God thank you for this wonderful devotional was right on time. I pray to God that he will give me strength to release all that has been on my heart and soul. My mother and her lifestyle my friend Joey and his lifestyle I pray to God that he will work in them. I release them to you father God because I can not continue to try to save them or worry about them. Only you can do what needs to be done in jesus name.

  2. I agree. This devotional was on point. I for one also know there are some people I have to release now moving forward. “Lord, I ask that you’d help me to release my cousin keisha and my aunt her mom over to you. I ask that you’d help me to release my new who’s left me out of her wedding details and celebrations along with the rest of the family who acts shady and doesn’t care to have a real relationship with the rest of us. Help me to RELEASE IT and them ALL to you along with all bitterness and anger so that I can continue to move forward in you and ALL that you have in and before me. I also pray for their healing and deliverance as well. I thank you for helping me to release all who aren’t really my friends or “team Lexy” I thank u. In Jesus name. Amen. Thank you DOT-K for your obedience to the Holy Spirit.

  3. Miraculous comeback is the word our Pastor gave for this year. God is speaking to me right were I am. I have been hindering my adult children who are bound to heroin and this past week. I had to just say here God I can’t carry them anymore, they are yours!!! It’s hard!!! But for God to work in their lives and mine and my husband’s life. I had to say here God you can, I can’t fix them. Thank you for your wonderful Ministry
