HE IS THE OWNER AND GIVER
It is I who by my great power and my outstretched arm have made the earth, with the men and animals that are on the earth, and I give it to whomever it seems right to me. —Jeremiah 27:5
By God’s great power He made:
- The earth
- The men on the earth
- The animals on the earth
By God’s great power He gives that which He made “to whomever it seems right to (Him).” He has plans and purposes that He is working out all over this planet. The nations that ruled in the past, are ruling in the present and that will rule in the future do so in the fulfillment of His plans and purposes. They do not exist by chance or coincidence. Our Lord God Almighty is at work. He is always at work. He is the owner of it all and is moving it all, working through it all according to His perfect plan. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pO77-m4SS3M
In a world that has so much wrong in it, God is at work doing what is right. In a world that groans because of sin, God is in the process of redeeming men out of it. For those of us redeemed by the blood of the Lamb (Revelation 1:5) He has given us purpose even in this sin sick world. Let us each be responsible with what He has given us to be and do and may it all be for His glory(Ephesians 2:10; II Timothy 3:16-17).
Yes, Dear Father may this be the case in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son. Oh, that I would be and do those things that are pleasing in Your sight. May it be so!
