It Is My Father’s

“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.”

Genesis 1:1

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him;

male and female he created them.” 

Genesis 1:27

“Let them praise the name of the Lord! For he commanded and they were created.”

Psalm 148:5

“For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.”

Colossians 1:16

For behold, he who forms the mountains and creates the wind,
    and declares to man what is his thought,
who makes the morning darkness,
    and treads on the heights of the earth—
    the Lord, the God of hosts, is his name!

Amos 4:13

My dear Sojourner, know that “[y]ou are not your own, for you were bought with a price.” (1 Corinthians 6:19b-20a), and that we who would follow Him, must die to self so that we might live in Him (Mt. 16:24; Gal. 2:20).  Since all is our Father’s, do we need to run after the things of this world?  Do we need, with clenched fists, to hold on to the things of this world?  My Father gives us all things that are needful (Rom. 8:32).  Won’t you trust Him with what you need?

Let go.  Let God.
