In this series, "The Treasure Principle", there are key principles that are going to emerge - the first one is, God owns everything. We are God's resource and money managers, but God owns everything. That is treasured key principle number one. Here are some scriptures that you may be familiar with: "The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it" (Ps. 24:1). "The silver is mine and the gold is mine," declares the Lord Almighty" (Hag. 2:8). "Remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth" (Deut. 8:18). "You are not your own; you were bought with a price" (1 Cor. 6:19, 20).
God is teaching us the treasure principle key number one - "God owns everything, and I'm his money and resource manager." Will you allow God to retain His ownership of your resources and your money, or will you hold onto it as if it is your own? Do you know the freedom that comes with trusting God for everything both now and in the future? As we have said so many times, "Let go and let God". When you master treasure principle number one, you will experience freedom as never before. Remember, God owns everything.
