God Owns It All

By Sean Ortiz

Have you ever wondered who is responsible for your fiscal management?  Does the idea of a budget make you cringe?  Well we have been going through a lesson called Impact here at New Beginnings.  It is based on Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University training.  One of the foundations of the class is to understand that God own’s it all.  PSALM 24:1 saysThe earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein”.  In HAGGAI 2:8 it states, ‘The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the Lord of hosts”.  Also in GENESIS 1:1 it begins with “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth”.  As soon as we understand the concept, that we do not own anything, but that we are God’s management team.  We can then realize we have a huge responsibility to manage our resources with the understanding we are accountable to the creator of Heaven and Earth.  What a responsibility we have.  The idea is the we would always think twice if we understood that we don’t own anything.  So, what would life be like debt free and living on 80% of your income?  What could you accomplish if you saved 10% and had 10% to give to charity.  Who could you help?  Who could be blessed by your abundance because you are managing your resources wisely.  We have 3 powerful resources, our TIME, TALENT AND TREASURE.  So, the question is, are you ready to live life and live it MORE abundantly? Let’s trust God with our resources so we can make an IMPACT in the world around us.  Remember to always LET GO AND LET GOD……
