“The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it.” This is the truth I am loving today. When we remember this truth, it keeps us out of a lot of trouble. It saves us from a lot of heartache!! When we don’t remember this truth, we begin thinking ANYTHING we have is our own, from our own doing, from our own power, we are putting ourselves at risk. We start backsliding into thinking with our flesh instead of staying in the spirit of Christ. As we prepare to head back to work this week, or many of us prepare for the Martin Luther King holiday, remember we work for His glory. Whatever abilities we are using in our employment, whatever talents we have which allow us to make our way in this world, they are gifts from God. That is all. Freely given, thankfully received.
“The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to him. For he laid the earth’s foundation on the seas and built it on the ocean depths. Who may climb the mountain of the LORD? Who may stand in his holy place? Only those whose hands and hearts are pure, who do not worship idols and never tell lies. They will receive the LORD’s blessing and have a right relationship with God their savior. Such people may seek you and worship in your presence, O God of Jacob… Open up, ancient gates! Open up, ancient doors, and let the King of glory enter. Who is the King of glory? The LORD, strong and mighty; the LORD, invincible in battle. Open up, ancient gates! Open up, ancient doors, and let the King of glory enter. Who is the King of glory? The LORD of Heaven’s Armies— he is the King of glory….”
Psalms 24:1-10 NLT
