If we could only get past the notion that everything we own is ours… and would loosen the death grip we have on our money and belongings. We would realize that everything belongs to God…everything! And with that, we could then know the freedom in managing God’s assets. For if you think about it…you will never be able to out give God. For when you have a open hand policy concerning your material things and take on the heart of stewardship…God will bless beyond what you can imagine.
For just a moment today ponder this. God spoke, and the world as we know it was formed. He spoke, and everything we see was created…out of nothing. For all things on earth were God-ordained. But we also need to realize that God’s commands are very unique in that He requires inner commitment from us…not merely some external superficial obedience. For God is so great that His commands are not to be questioned…His creative work not challenged.
“The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it.” (Psalm 24:1) So look around you today…God has made everything you see, smell, touch, hear, and taste. And He is under no obligation to anyone for this creative work. For God is totally and absolutely self-sufficient.
