You Own it All
- Majestic Heavenly Father, God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,
you own it all because You made it all!
- We, Your creation, worship You.
- You made a beautiful world for us to live in and recognise
You in; the stars at night, the trees, the sky, the clouds that bring Your
water that renews Your creation at Your will.
- And when You made us, it was in Your image, so that we
have the ability to see You in Your glory, if we so wish, because You also
gave us the aptitude to choose to climb above the awareness of mere creation
- to see You and the Light of Your countenance.
- Praise You for that, Almighty God.
- The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy
in all his works. The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon
him, to all that call upon him in truth.
- (Psalms 145:17-18)
- To show us that You did all this because you care
for us, You sent Your Son to lead by example, so that all who believe
by example and unreservedly give our wills, the core of our beings back
to You shall be enabled; to be powered by Your eternal Spirit, who shall
reveal Your wonders to us for Your good purpose.
- Thank You, Father.
- The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those
that hope in his mercy.
- (Psalms 147:11)
- All Glory rightfully belongs to You, Father, through Your
triumphant Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, and the prowess of your Holy Spirit.
- My friend, are you self-centred or God-centred?
- Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received
mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty,
not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but
by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience
in the sight of God. But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are
lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which
believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the
image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but
Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. For
God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our
hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in
the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels,
that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
- (2 Corinthians 4:1-7)
- Do you wish to become God-centred?
- Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.
Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with
thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of
God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds
through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever
things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever
things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever
things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if
there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which
ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and
the God of peace shall be with you.
- (Philippians 4:4-9)
- That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing,
being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;
Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all
patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; Giving thanks unto the Father,
which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints
in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated
us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption
through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image
of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were
all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible
and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities,
or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before
all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body,
the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in
all things he might have the preeminence. For it pleased the
Father that in him should all fulness dwell; And, having made peace
through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself;
by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things
- (Colossians 1:10-20)
