Your life is a sacred trust bestowed on you by God. Your intellect, assets, money, gifts, talents and opportunities emanate from God - the giver of all good things. Ensure what you are endowed with are not abused and wasted; they constitute a loan, which you must retire at the end of your life. If God were to withdraw all His benefits and gifts from you, you would be empty. Malachi 3:6 tells us: “For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.” The position of God does not change.
You must recognize His help and support. If He was able to help you yesterday, He is able to help you today and He will be available to help you tomorrow. As you continue to recognize His help, you must never lose sight of the fact that everything that is good in you is borrowed. Whatever is borrowed should be treated with special care.
Many of the things that you have are borrowed, including your talents. One day, the One who gave you the talents will make you account for them (Matthew 25:14-29). Our children are borrowed, too. Psalms 127:3 says: “Lo, children are an inheritance of the LORD, and the fruit of the womb is his reward.” Many of us do not care whether we follow the way of the Lord or not. The One who gave us the children will ask us to account for them, one day. What about your money?
In Haggai 2:8, the Bible says: “The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts.” Whatever money you have is a loan from the One who owns silver and gold. One day, He will ask you to account for how you spent the money. In Corinthians 6:19-20, the Bible states that God owns your body. Some of us use our bodies as if we do not know that they were borrowed.
The owner of the body will query you when the time comes. Your body belongs to the Holy Spirit, so you cannot commit adultery and fornication with it and get away free. Your body must be used correctly.
In Ecclesiastes 12:7, the Bible teaches that your spirit belongs to God. You cannot do whatever you like with your spirit. Your soul belongs to the Almighty God and, one day, you shall surely give an account for it.
You do not have the liberty to spend your life and make use of your resources the way you like. Remember, the day of reckoning is at hand. Prepare to meet thy Lord.
