I think that we forget sometimes that the Lord is the only Ons who actually owns anything — the rest of us are simply leasing everything else from Him (including the air that we breathe!).
Everything that we use — even when we fancy ourselves to be innovators who create “new” things — is borrowed. Water, air, food, income… none of it actually belongs to us, but we so often act and behave as if the opposite were true. God created it all, declared it good, and then has graciously bestowed it upon us as stewards. I wonder — how are we doing on the stewardship front?
Just think about it: the Lord knows “evety bird on the mountains” and then He declares that “all of the animals of the field are mine”. Put another way, everything above and below belongs to Him, and the Lord knows each sparrow, finch and eagle by name. In fact, even the animals on the ground do not escape His notice.
And if He owns the birds on the mountains, then the mountains also belong to Him; and if the animals on the earth are His, then it stands to reason that the fields belong to Him, too.
Can you imagine it? Every bird? Every mountain? And all of the animals in tne field? God created it all, and maintains it all by the Word of His power.
And this same God wants to be our Friend. Amazing Grace, indeed.
