God Owns It All
Everything you have is already the Lord's. Christ is the source of all things and has given us every material and spiritual thing. Whenever we give, we are simply re-giving.
All we are and have in life comes from Him. God wants us to live with this understanding: “Everything I am and all that I have belongs to you, Lord. You are the rightful owner and you are the ultimate source of all my provision.” Genesis 1 tells us, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. God then, ”..spoke into nothing and created something."; This was ex nihilo “from nothing,” He created everything. He made everything, therefore, He owns everything. In Psalm 24, God tells us that the earth (the heavens-cosmos) and all it contains “is mine!” Psalm 50:10 proclaims, He “owns the Cattle on a thousand hills” – meaning that everything is His. All that we have is FROM Him in the first place, but we often take so much for granted. Take time today and thank God for all that He has given you.
