Ownership Transfer

Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body. —1 Corinthians 6:19-20

When you want to retaliate, remember that the fundamental reality in the kingdom of God is found in the words of our Scripture today: "For you were bought at a price; ... in your body and in your spirit, which are God's" (NKJV). Beloved, when you show kindness to your enemies, it declares you belong to another. Your resources belong to God, your reputation belongs to Him, and your time belongs to Him. When your enemies bring pressure on you, malign your reputation, or steal your resources or your time, the Lord invites you to make a transfer of ownership and put your complete self into His hands. This makes room for His vengeance and His agenda. He is your defense and your ally. This is the path to true liberty and true power. Every time someone harms you, it's another divine opportunity to shout to the world that the Lord owns you and will defend you according to His righteousness.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

Jesus, what an incomprehensible price You paid to redeem my soul from hell. Let me never forget that I belong to You. Be my defense, be my ally, and show me the path to true liberty and power.

If He is not concerned to Punish immediately the
injustice done to you, then neither should
you be worried—you belong to Him.
