10 – Perfect Order

26 – Beloved


1 Corinthians 10:26 (NKJV) – For “the earth is the LORD’s, and all its fullness.” 

Contrary to popular belief, all of creation belongs to the Creator–Jesus Christ. The gospel of John begins with the history of creation. Jesus, the Word of God, was with God the Father in the beginning, and through Him all things were brought forth into existence. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. – Colossians 1:16 (NKJV)


Declaration: I belong to Jesus Christ. Not only did He redeem me through His sacrifice on the cross, but He designed and created me for Himself. May the Lamb receive the reward of His suffering through my devotion and adoration. In Jesus’ name, Amen!




There is a portion of Scripture in Psalm 50 where God Almighty is talking to His people the Israelites. He tells them, “If I were hungry, I would not tell you; for the world is Mine, and all its fullness.” Just before that He tells them that the cattle on a thousand hills belong to Him, and every beast of the field, and all the birds of the air. This is a good reminder that the Lord doesn’t need anything from us, He is completely self sufficient and self contained. Out of that wholeness, He brought forth the heavens and the earth, and the fullness thereof as Genesis chapter 1 explains.


Psalms 8:3-9 (NKJV) – When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than the angels, And You have crowned him with glory and honor. You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet, All sheep and oxen— Even the beasts of the field, The birds of the air, And the fish of the sea That pass through the paths of the seas. O LORD, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth!


For the Creator to have entered into relationship and partnership with us, His creation, is astounding! The Lord entrusted us to have dominion over HIS creation and when we forfeited it in the garden to the serpent, He sent King Jesus to take back power & authority, and Jesus then handed it back to us!


Matthew 28:18-20 (NKJV)

And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.



Luke 10:19 (NKJV)

“Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”


Acts 1:8 (NKJV)

“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”


From the very beginning God has had us in mind. The focus of His love was set upon us like a bullseye on a target. Romans 8:29-30, For He knew all about us before we were born and He destined us from the beginning to share the likeness of His Son. This means the Son is the oldest among a vast family of brothers and sisters who will become just like Him. 30 Having determined our destiny ahead of time, He called us to Himself and transferred His perfect righteousness to everyone He called. And those who possess His perfect righteousness He co-glorified with His Son! He has given us the fullness of Himself and has trusted us with the fullness of His creation.


Revelation 4:11 (NKJV)

“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”
