Today you should read: Revelation 18:11-14

Revelation 18 is prophecy about the fall of Babylon.  Everything of value – and Babylon’s position is being removed.  These verses remind me of two important principles:

  • Everything we have belongs to God

Sometimes we forget this. We think :

  • I’ve earned it
  • I’ve worked hard for what I have
  • It’s mine

But this isn’t the case.  Everything belongs to the Lord and he trusts us to manage it.  

Behold, to the LORD your God belong heaven and the highest heavens, the earth and all that is in it.  Deuteronomy 10:14

The heavens are Yours, the earth also is Yours; The world and all it contains, You have founded them. Psalm 89:11

  • We reap what we sow

When we rebel against God and chose our own way, there is a price to pay.

Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.  Galatians 6:7

Babylon forgot both of these important principles. How about you?  Take a moment and remind yourself that everything you have belongs to God and He expects you to live by His rules.
