Everything Belongs to God

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

Everything belongs to God. Everything! Although it is easy to make this statement, it can be difficult to apply this in our lives and realize what it really means.

In fact, many problems are caused when we don’t understand this truth. How much time is spent worrying about things? How many wars are fought over control and ownership? How much mental and emotional energy is consumed when we cling to things we think we “own”? How much of our time is wasted when we strive and compete, seeking to acquire more and more material possessions?

Our attitude changes when we recognize that everything belongs to God! Nothing is truly ours: not money, homes, resources, or abilities. However, this truth should give us great peace and freedom. It should help us learn to trust in God…for everything we have is His. We are simply His servants!

This is why it’s so important to learn to live by faith. Every day, we must believe that God will deliver, protect, and provide for us. He will keep His promises, no matter what appears on the surface. We must pray every day, “Give us this day, our daily bread.” Every day, we need to seek first His Kingdom, and realize it doesn’t do any good to worry (Matthew 6:9-34).

Right now, stop and think about your life. Take an inventory of everything you “own,” and realize it all belongs to God. Take this moment to release everything back to Him. Give it into His hands.

Realize that your responsibility is to be a good steward of His possessions. Make sure to seek Him and ask what He wants you to do with the resources He has entrusted to you. Let Him take away your worries and fears, so He can give you His peace and direct your path.
