Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out! “For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has become His counselor?” “Or who has first given to Him and it shall be repaid to him?” For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.
God’s wisdom is unparalleled in human terms. Neither the sum of the brains of all the great sages that have existed remotely could approach God’s wisdom. All the great scientists of all ages together ever equal the science from our Creator. We still have a lot to learn from Him. Many divine mysteries that we will discover when we’re all eternity to our Heavenly Father.
With all His knowledge and wisdom, God created the heavens and the earth. Everything that exists, everything we know comes from Him. The universe and all its contents exist thanks to Him. Therefore, the entire creation is owned by its Creator, who has done everything to Him. That is something that must be clearly understood that when we look at the human environment, surely we would agree that anyone who does things must be the owner that he has done.
Many people have a very distorted view about God. And I’m not talking about those who deny His existence, but a lot of those attending a church and saying they believe in Him. For such people, God is to assist them in times of crisis; but He has no place in the times when luck smiles. It is common for these people to pray for healing and when lack of material resources; but once achieved what they wanted, they go their way and forget God until the next crisis.
There are other people who think that all material things are their ownership and that God has nothing to do with it. For those who think God is a spiritual being that is completely oblivious to the physical or tangible. Then these people believe that only human beings are called to be absolute masters of wealth and to relate to God with such things is totally unacceptable because spirits do not need gold or silver.
What both types of people do not consider is that God has been the author of all that exists. Therefore, He has all copyrights over creation. There is nothing, neither visible nor invisible against God which does not have exclusive ownership since only He and no one else was the mastermind, designer and builder of everything without exception.
What is our role in the ownership of things that exist? God as the sole owner of all uses us as His stewards. Some will trust them more than others conform to our administrative capabilities. And everyone has asked us one day about how we handle what He put into our hands. God bless you.
