MORNINGTIME 2537
 
For EVERY BEAST of the forest IS MINE, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. I KNOW ALL the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field ARE MINE. Psalm 50:10-11. Sanctify unto me all the firstborn, whatsoever openeth the womb among the children of Israel, both of man and of beast: IT IS MINE. Exodus 13:2. The land shall not be sold for ever: FOR THE LAND IS MINE; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me. Leviticus 25:23. Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: FOR ALL THE EARTH IS MINE: Exodus 19:5. Are we starting to get the point that the Lord owns it ALL??? Let's put this in today's language. Imagine a bright yellow tag stuck to everything you have, and on the tag are the words, "IT'S MINE", as a reminder that the Lord owns it. The tags are on your clothes, your furniture, your wallet and all its contents, your family, your house, your business, your food, and even your time. And especially, let's not forget, EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE AND EVERY BEAT OF YOUR HEART, is tagged. Get the picture? OK, back to real life, how many of these things, IN YOUR MIND, ACTIONS, AND DEEDS, do you consider as belonging to the Lord? If we Believers are just sojourners in a foreign land that is not our home, what is there that we can claim, as ours? What will your thoughts, your actions, your deeds, and even your attitude be like today towards man and God, if all the above verses were really true, in your mind and heart? If your very EXISTENCE belongs to the Lord, and He takes it back, you drop dead in your tracks, can anyone fault God for taking what's His? DO YOU ACTUALLY HAVE THE RIGHT TO GET MAD AT GOD WHEN HE TAKES ANYTHING OR ANYONE, BACK HOME??? Yes, these are hard questions, but are they True? Is it ALL His, or not? If not, than what part is His and what part is yours. Best to tell Him now what's His, so that you may, Be Blessed.
