For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. 11 I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine. 12 If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof. – Psalm 50:10-12

God owns everything. The fact that God is just letting you use the things He gives you will keep you balanced in your prosperity. It will help you keep your focus on God and not get caught up with money and material possessions. You won’t fall victim to Deuteronomy 8:17 saying within your heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth.

Think about everything you have now: your car, your house, your family…everything that belongs to you. Now, tell yourself, it all belongs to God. While you are here on the earth, you are a steward for God. The level of your stewardship faithfulness is what determines what and how much God allows you to use.

God will allow you to use His best when you keep Him first and stay in His will.

So think, God owns everything, and I own nothing. The things that I have, God is letting me use.
