“To the LORD your God belong the heavens, even the highest heavens, the earth and everything in it.” (Deuteronomy 10:14)

Everything; now there is an all encompassing and all containing word. No exceptions, no exclusions, no special case, nothing left out. It all belongs to God, whether we agree or not, accept or not, believe or not.

If it is in heaven it is His and if it is on earth it is His. All we have and all we think we own, is His. If this is true, then we are merely stewards of what belongs to God.

If we really thought about that and understood this fact in all its ramifications, would our lives be different? I think we would be more generous, less frivolous and more thankful. To begin with perhaps we should acknowledge that He owns it all, and then maybe He will respond by giving us a greater revelation of how we should steward that which is His.

Quick Prayer. “It is all yours Lord.” Amen
