Ownership is the act, state, or right of possessing something . Most of us consider ownership a great accomplishment, owning your first car, first house, your first pet, your business, etc.. Ownership brings a since of achievement. Once we claim ownership of something we can boldly say that is mine I paid for that, I have the title to that car or that house. Ownership is a great thing, however in our lives in Christ some things God does not want us to own, it is Not Yours! A lot of things we take ownership of do not belong to us, however we continue to say my depression, my headache, my arthritis, my high blood pressure, my cancer, my addiction, my eating disorder, MY,MY,MY! IT’S NOT YOURS, send all these things back to the pits of hell where they belong. Why do we take ownership of such things? Yes sickness and disease come but it is not ours, I don’t want to own any of these things. Jesus suffered, bleed and died on the cross so that none of these thing are ours. When we take ownership of something we take care of it, we pay special attention to it, we want other people to enjoy these things with us. Most of the things we take ownership of make us happy, feel good about ourselves. When was the last time you heard some one say I am so happy I own my cancer now, I feel great! No cancer does not make you feel good about owning it and neither does any other sickness or disease so why would we want to own anything that can destroy our lives, make us feel bad, and cause pain and agony for our families. Do not take ownership of it at all, take ownership of your Joy, your Peace and your Wholeness , your healing! IT IS YOURS!!!!!
John 10:10King James Version (KJV)
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Isaiah 53:4King James Version (KJV)
4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
1 Peter 2:24King James Version (KJV) 24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
Lord forgive us for taking ownership of the wrong things, Lord help us to take ownership of the abundant life you have promised us in you.
In Jesus Mighty name we pray
In his Strength
