Day 13: Mine

Day 13: Mine

31 Days of Intimacy with my Savior

We’ve all heard that possession is nine tenths of the law. Well, let’s test that theory and see what God thinks. The Law is comprised of 10 commandments.

  1. You shall have no other gods before Me because You belong to Me. You are My most treasured possession and I Am yours.
  2. Don’t make or worship idols because I am the only God you need to worship. Idols can’t help you like I can. Just ask Baal worshippers.
  3. Don’t take the name of The LORD your God in vain. Names have meanings and to use it for anything other than what I intended, i.e., blessing, is abuse. When you honor, respect My Name you honor and respect yourself.
  4. Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy. Follow my lead. I rest one day each week so also must you rest. By rest I mean rest in Me as well as siesta: Rest in my love, on my promises and you will have a long life full of blessing.
  5. Honor your parents because these are the ones who put up with your every foible, sickness and whatnot. They prepared you to live with your husband or wife. I am your Almighty Father. I expect you to honor them as you honor Me because when you do, long life is yours.
  6. Don’t murder because only I have the authority to give and take life. You need each other and that’s by design. Don’t mess with my design.
  7. Don’t commit adultery because marriage is a reflection of Our relationship. If I can send my son to die for you then you can wait and be faithful to Me as well as your husband or wife. Marriage on earth mirrors marriage in heaven.
  8. Don’t steal because I am sufficient for you. Need something? Call on Me. Didn’t get it? Maybe it’s harmful for you. Trust me. I will provide you everything you need and then some.
  9. Don’t lie about your neighbor because I despise liars. If your desire truly is for Me then lying is not even in your vocabulary. You never know when your neighbor might be the one to come to your defense.
  10. Don’t set your heart on anything or anyone that belongs to your neighbor. If you need anything, I Am the one Who supplies all you need. Also, you need to exhibit self control because there never will be a day when you own everything. I own everything and you’ll never own as much as I do. Besides, you can’t take it with you when you die.

In conclusion, I’d have to agree: Possession is nine tenths of The Law. I’ll let you decide which one isn’t about possession.
