Knowing in our hearts we belong to God changes the choices we make regarding what belongs to us by strengthening our boundaries and helping us to never question our security in Christ.
This knowledge also enables us to become better stewards of what God has entrusted to us. What belongs to us must match our belonging to the Lord. We are not our own; Jesus shed His blood on the cross for our redemption. Our bodies, talents, gifts, finances and all we are and have is His. The Holy Spirit in us enables us to care for what is His, not ours, by reaffirming how precious we are in God’s eyes.
We are so precious to God! He knows how to care for what belongs to Him, and He watches over us with love and protects us with power. He can keep what He paid such a price for, with surety and watchfulness. We are God’s property and we can evict every intruder in Jesus’ name! We are not blind, we can see; not alone and abandoned. We belong to God, and this belonging takes us, from glory to glory!
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.”
