It's Not Mine Anyway

You know, I was thinking. We all have this false impression that somehow we go out into this world, earn a living, raise a family and live our lives so that we might OWN some things! The reality is that we really don't own anything at all! We simply are given charge of it so that we might be able to bless God in the process. Psalm 24:1 says: " The earth is the LORD's, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it...." God owns it all! He controls it all! He and He alone makes the decisions as to what pleases Him in how He will bless us! God is a dictator. A loving, kind, benevolent, caring & righteous dictator. God does not govern by committee or a democratic process, He is a single entity ruler! The thing about this is that He is so caring about His people that He has given us and will continue to give us the best He has. I have been so blessed in know so many people over the years. Many of whom (myself included) actually lose track of who is in charge! We have somehow been deceived that it is up to us to make things happen. Now, don't get me wrong, we all have responsibilities. By being responsible we can open the doors to the blessings of the father. Remember, don't judge a blessing based on material things or dollar signs. Judge for yourself how you grow and become closer to the Father though the tough times. God will always provide! He will always care! But mostly He will always love. Be blessed beyond belief today.
