Can a man own God?

Psa 8:1  To the chief Musician upon Gittith, A Psalm of David. O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.

“O LORD our Lord…”

God is a God that wants to be owned.  What does that mean?  He desires a personal relationship with you to the point that you can say, “This is my God.”  Yes, you can acknowledge that He is the God of others, but you come to such a personal relationship that is not primarily corporate but private.  Too many people have a primarily corporate relationship with God.

Search your heart, and ask God to search it for you (Psalm 139:23).  Ask Him if you are having a corporate relationship with Him or if you have a private relationship with Him.  You should know the difference in your relationships with other people.  There are those that you only see at church, that you only see when you are with other friends.  Those are your corporate relationships.  Then, there are those that you call and ask to come over to your house, or that you talk to by initiative.  Those are your private relationships.  God wants to have a personal, private relationship with you.  He wants to share His heart, His secrets, and His ambitions with you (Genesis 18).  He wants to let you in on His plan for the world.

Let Him be your God.
