1 Chronicles 29:11 Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.

David, the man after God’s own heart (Acts 13:22), declares to God, “…all that is in the heaven and the earth is Thine”. As a new day dawns, it is well to remember that God owns the world and everything in it. He owns your home and car and television. He owns your mind and emotions and will and your very life. He gave it freely as a trust, and He may take it whenever He pleases and do you no wrong. We are not our own (1 Corinthians 6:19). Nor is anything we possess our own. God owns all of it. We are only stewards.

“Thine is the kingdom” – In other words, God rules and reigns in His universe. “Thou art exalted as Head above all” – God is the final Authority in the universe. Do these words sound familiar to you? You will recall that when the disciples asked the Lord Jesus to teach them to pray, He gave them a model prayer. He took them right back here to David’s prayer. “Hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:9,10)

May God be exalted in your life today, beloved. His sovereignty in your life is as your best Friend, not your enemy.
