Who has given me anything that I need to pay back?
Everything under heaven is mine. - Job 41:11
“If I want it, it’s mine.
If I give it to you & I change my mind later, it’s mine.
If I can take it away from you, it’s mine.
If I had it a little while ago, it’s mine.
If it’s mine, it will never belong to anybody else, no matter what.
If we are building something together, all the pieces are mine.
If it looks like mine, it is mine.”
Have you ever seen this poem? It's called “The Toddler's Creed”. Today I was inspired to rewrite this as God's Statement of Ownership. I hope this is a great reminder to you. I've made it into a printable that you can access and print by clicking here.
God's Statement of Ownership
I want you. Call on Me and be Mine.
And now that you belong to Christ, you are the true childrenof Abraham. You are his heirs, and God’s promise to Abraham belongs to you. - Galatians 3:29
Once I have you, I will never give you up. As long as you are willing, you will always be Mine.
Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me. - John 15:4
I have taken your sins away, once for all time. You are Mine.
And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment, so also Christ died once for all time as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many people. He will come again, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who are eagerly waiting for him.
- Hebrews 9:27-28
While you were still sinners, even then I knew you would be Mine.
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. - Romans 5:8
I have adopted you, so you will never belong to any other family but Mine.
Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave of sin. A slave is not a permanent member of the family, but a son is part of the family forever. So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free. - John 8:34-36
I have built every cell, every fiber, every soul. Everything about you is completely Mine.
For every house has a builder, but the one who built everything is God. - Hebrews 3:4
I see your heart. If there, you look like mine, you are Mine.
But the person who loves God is the one whom God recognizes. - 1 Corinthians 8:3
Holy God, thank You for the gift of being fully Yours. Keep me close to You, Father. In Jesus' Name, Amen...
