RELEASING TO RECEIVING
By DIGC 21 May 2021
The miracle of supply never happens without a release.
SCRIPTURE: And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece. Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. John 2:6-7
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The miracle of supply never happens without a release.
The Scripture reveals on many occasions that release is one key to accessing supernatural supplies.
For example in John 2:1-11, water had to be given in order for wine to be produced. The truth is, God does not need what you have but you need what He has. If you put what is in your hands in God’s Hands, He will put in your hands what is in His Hands; it is a very simple principle.
There are people who think that God wants to take something from them. No! God does not want to take anything from you; rather, He wants to get things across to you. For the people to get wine, they must release water.
Jesus seemed to tell them; “You have water but you don’t have wine. Give me what you have and I will give you what you don’t have. Give me what is available and I give you what is desirable”.
Water is H20. Wine is C6H1206. Glucose (C6H1206) is sweeter, richer and better than water. They gave God water that is plain and God gave them wine that is loaded. That is to say, if you give God what is plain, He will give you what is loaded.
The creation of Eve from the rib of Adam is another example. Now, God did not take the rib from Adam because He wanted to eat bone. Of course, God doesn’t eat human bones. Rather, He took the rib from Adam because he (Adam) needed an Eve (Genesis 2:21-23). He took one rib and multiplied it into 204 bones and then added muscles, tendons, arteries, veins, capillaries, joints, ligaments, etc. to make a complete human being.
The scriptural examples above clearly show that the miracle of supply never happens without a release. So, make up your mind to release both to God and to people, and you will reap the harvest of supplies in multiplied folds.
Remember this: The miracle of supply never happens without a release.
- Determine to maintain strategic generosity.
- Release towards God and the people.
PRAYER: Lord, thank You for Your Word to me today. Help me with the grace not to withhold the seed that will produce my harvest, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

REFLECTION: Is there anything you have that you brought into this world? Is there anything you have that God did not give you? Is there anything you have that you will leave this world with? Why then is it difficult to release towards God?
