The Earth is the Lord's

We read in Scripture, "The earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof." (1 Cor 10:26) That's quite a claim. It comes from Psalm 50.
"I shall take no young bull out of your house nor male goats out of your folds. "For every beast of the forest is Mine, the cattle on a thousand hills. I know every bird of the mountains, and everything that moves in the field is Mine. If I were hungry I would not tell you, for the world is Mine, and all it contains." (Psa 50:9-12)
A friend of mine was in an accident two months ago. He was badly hurt and still can't work yet. Insurance is slow to respond. Healing is slower. He's bound up with one problem prevent the repair of another and frustrated for lack of improvement. I asked him how his family was holding up without his income. His response was "The simple answer is God has always meet our needs."

That's the God we serve. That's the God we worship. He owns everything. He knows when the sparrow falls. He will supply our needs. Of whom, then, shall we be afraid? Praise God from Whom all blessings flow.
