Financial Freedom Principle #3: God owns it all

It is common to say, “this is my house” or “this is my car” when speaking of such things. There is no harm or foul in this when we are speaking this way to say these and other things do not belong to a friend or a neighbor. However, in all reality, He owns it all. We are to be good stewards of His possessions. I will have more to say about that in Tip #4. Consider some verses that speak of God’s ownership of everything.

The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell therein. (Psalm 24:1)

The land shall not be sold permanently, for the land is Mine … (Leviticus 25:23)

For every beast of the forest is Mine, And the cattle on a thousand hills. I know all the birds of the mountains,

And the wild beasts of the field are Mine. If I were hungry, I would not tell you; For the world is Mine, and all its fullness. (Psalm 50:10-12)

The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the Lord of hosts. (Haggai 2:8)

Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, The power and the glory, The victory and the majesty; For all that is in heaven and in earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and You are exalted as head over all. Both riches and honor come from You, and You reign over all. In Your hand is power and might; in Your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all. Now therefore, our God, we thank You and praise Your glorious name. (1 Chronicles 29:11-13)

In His hand are the deep places of the earth; the heights of the hills are His also. The sea is His, for He made it; and His hands formed the dry land. (Psalm 95:4-5)

The truth of God’s ownership is another top priority in being financially free. In this truth we are acknowledging His supremacy in every area of our life; especially money.

(For further reading see: Matthew 16:26; 25:14-28; Psalm 49:16-20)

Psalm 18:30-32

As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him. For who is God, except the Lord? And who is a rock, except our God? It is God who arms me with strength, and makes my way perfect.

Psalm 34:7-10

The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them. Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him! Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him. The young lions lack and suffer hunger; But those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.

Psalm 95:6-8

Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.
For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand.
Today, if you will hear His voice: “Do not harden your hearts, as in the rebellion,
As in the day of trial in the wilderness.”

Psalm 40:1-3

I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined to me, and heard my cry. He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my steps. He has put a new song in my mouth— Praise to our God. Many will see it and fear, and will trust in the Lord.
