Title: God is the Owner of the Univers.
(Isaiah 45:1-18) This is what the Lord says to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I take hold of to subdue nations before him and to strip kings of their armor, to open doors before him so that gates will not be shut: I will go before you and will level the mountains; I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron. I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, who summons you by name. For the sake of Jacob my servant, of Israel my chosen,
I summon you by name and bestow on you a title of honor,though you do not acknowledge me. I am the Lord, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God. I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me, so that from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting people may know there is none besides me. I am the Lord, and there is no other.
I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the Lord, do all these things. “You heavens above, rain down my righteousness; let the clouds shower it down.
Let the earth open wide, let salvation spring up, let righteousness flourish with it;
I, the Lord, have created it.
“Woe to those who quarrel with their Maker, those who are nothing but potsherds among the potsherds on the ground. Does the clay say to the potter, What are you making?’ Does your work say,
The potter has no hands’?
Woe to the one who says to a father, What have you begotten?’
or to a mother, What have you brought to birth?’ “This is what the Lord says— the Holy One of Israel, and its MakerConcerning things to come, do you question me about my children, or give me orders about the work of my hands? It is I who made the earth and created mankind on it . My own hands stretched out the heavens; I marshaled their starry hosts.I will raise up Cyrus in my righteousness: I will make all his ways straight. He will rebuild my city and set my exiles free,
but not for a price or reward, says the Lord Almighty.” This is what the Lord says: The products of Egypt and the merchandise of Cush, and those tall Sabeans
they will come over to you and will be yours; they will trudge behind you, coming over to you in chains.
They will bow down before you
and plead with you, saying,
Surely God is with you, and there is no other; there is no other god.
Truly you are a God who has been hiding himself, the God and Savior of Israel. All the makers of idols will be put to shame and disgraced; they will go off into disgrace together. But Israel will be saved by the Lord with an everlasting salvation;
you will never be put to shame or disgraced, to ages everlasting.
For this is what the Lord says—
he who created the heavens, he is God; he who fashioned and made the earth, he founded it; he did not create it to be empty,but formed it to be inhabited he says:
“I am the Lord, and there is no other.
God is the creator and the owner of the earth. He is Omnipotent, Omnipresent. Without Him there is no other God. Anything we are doing in this life , if we are doing it without Him, we are like fish out of water. Though, His grace has been keeping us even when we refuse to acknowledge His presence or existence in our lives, He continues to pardon us because we don’t know what we are doing. If you don’t believe in His power, or if you don’t recognize His existence, it means you have to think again. This world you are looking at in which we live in, we don’t know the end or the beginning of it but God knows.
God rules over the light and darkness, over prosperous times and times of disaster, over our struggles and our victories. Our lives are spread with all types of experiences , and all of them are needed for us to grow spiritually. The moment we understand and accept that God is the owner of this earth and also in charge, we will do well. The devil is angel of darkness that is going about telling the children of God lies about this world and causing people to believe that he is in control of it. The devil is competing with God and hiding the truth to the world just to deceive us.
If we understand that the earth belong to God, and allow Him the control of our lives, we will not be in so much pain and agony today. We must understand that God created the world and everything there in. He has the final say in every circumstance of this life. Devil has no power to change God’s work or plan, but our Almighty has the power to change anything devil has planned but devil has no power to change God’s work or His plan. Our lives are in the hands of God our existence is by His grace and favor but devil has no control. Whatever God says that it will happen that is what will have. Why not surrender your life and all you do today to that God who has all the power and has the final say.May God help us to understand that He alone has the power to change anything that He created and the devil has no power in Jesus name. Amen.
Prayers: God please help us to understand that you are in charge, both in life and in death . You are the Almighty, Alpha and Omega. Without you there no other. You are the beginning and you are the end. Be thou exalted my Lord God in Jesus name.
