God is the Owner of Everything - day 1
Psalm 50 tells us of the reality that we often do not acknowledge. The Lord describes that literally everything belongs to Him. In this psalm, the Lord uses the imagery of all the animals of the forest and all the cattle of a thousand hills. If it helps a modern listener, He could also have said that every skyscraper, bank, car, and computer is His, too. Using language that the everyday person can understand, He says that if He were ever hungry, He would have no reason to tell a man, because He owns everything in the world and He already has all that He needs. “The world is mine,” the Lord says, “and all that is in it.” The Lord makes no exceptions; He doesn’t just own all the things that relate to the agriculture industry. Everything you have rightfully belongs to Him. Your money, your home, your car, the clothes on your back – even your very life. God created it all and He has the only rightful claim to it all and He has the only rightful claim to it all.
