And he brought back all the goods, and also brought again his brother Lot, and his goods, and the women also, and the people. Vs. 16
A Psalm of David. The earth is the LORD’s, and the fullness thereof, the world and all who dwell therein. Vs. 1
Based on Psalm 24:1, this truth is established : the earth is lawfully owned by God. It was not something He inherited from someone else, but something He created.
The creation of planet earth was God's original idea Genesis 1:1
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Vs. 1
You cannot give what you don't have except you are a criminal trying to fraudulently dispose of what belongs to others like Satan does. For this reason, God created man in His own image and handed over the earth to him. After ruling over the earth for a period, man unknowingly handed the earth to Satan.
This he did by receiving the forbidden fruit from him, thereby disobeying God and obeying Satan. God was very angry about this but he devised a plan to reclaim what belonged to him.
As at the time the Lord was being tempted by the devil in the wilderness, Satan was making attempts to renegotiate the ownership and dominion of planet earth with the Lord, but resisted him.
This tells us something about the Lord; He does not allow any of His precious properties to be taken over by His enemies. He does not mind paying any price including becoming a man in order to recover what His enemy has stolen.
Are you like the Lord? Take stock of all the precious gifts that you have lost since you were saved; how many of them have you recovered? Many of us have lost a lot of valuable things to carelessness, sin, disobedience etc. Yet, after we asked for forgiveness, we have refused to pay the price for their recovery.
You are not the first individual to lose something precious. Abraham once lost Lot, Lot's family and all of Lot's possessions to some invading kings. As soon as he got news of their capture, he armed his servants that could fight and attacked the enemies at night when they were at ease, resting and enjoying their loot.
He recovered all that was stolen. To recover the lost graces of God on your life, you have to fight. To recover what you lost or what was stolen in spite of your faithfulness in tithing, you will have to arise, hold on to God's word and fight.
You may have to plunder spiritual thieves that stole your blessings in the spiritual realm, by waking up at midnight to attack them in prayer.
This month, we are recovering all that we have lost because He recovered all for us on the cross.
SUPPORT MY STEEM PROJECT
@BlessTheOrphan project is targeted towards children and teenagers who have lost either or both parents and are going through difficult times to survive. The affected will receive relieve materials including food, clothing and educational support from @BlessTheOrphan project in a bid to help them survive.
Moreover, the vulnerable girl-child (even with both parents) will be considered in this project. While I grew up, I had been hurt because I had no one to talk to nor be concerned with my worries. I know the pains such girls go through and @BlessTheOrphan project will be a coverage for them. In this part of the world, some girls are so neglected that some rarely have access to the basic woman’s need such as sanitary wares. #BlessTheOrphan project will be a coverage to such.
