The Supremacy of God

There are certain actions and lifestyles that God forbids those who serve Him from engaging in if they want to maintain a relationship with Him and enjoy his blessings. Before the children of Israel left Egypt, there were people already living and settling in the promised land as their ancestral home for years.

God found Abram, a faithful man who lived an honorable life. Because of this, He decided to call him out of his sinful family, country, kindred, and his father’s house to another land. In obedience, Abram departed with about seventy-five people who agreed with his vision and passed through the land. God appeared to him immediately after he obeyed and arrived at the land, assuring him of his willingness and determination to give him the land.

No one can claim permanent ownership of anything on Earth unless he allows God to rule over his life without competition. Except that you give God your time, money, talent, land, and all that you have to manage, you are just a temporary owner. If you refuse to serve God and honor Him with all you have, it can be transferred to someone who will use it better to serve and honor God, even your ancestral inheritance or birthright.

Sin is bad by nature, but one of the worst sins that God hates most is idolatry, which is anything you put before God. Idolatry also means: worshipping other gods, bowing down to images, walking after other gods, worshipping images, and sacrificing to images. Once you engage in any of these, your wealth will be transferred to others, either spiritually or physically. When this happens spiritually, all that you have will not profit you, and your wealth will produce sorrows, pains, and disappointments. When it takes place physically, you will lose your inheritance, and all that you labored to achieve will be given to others.

Our inheritance is turned to strangers, our houses to aliens. Servants have ruled over us: there is none that doth deliver us out of their hand. The crown is fallen from our head: woe unto us, that we have sinned! But thou hast utterly rejected head: woe art very wroth against us.

Lamentations 5: 2, 8, 16, 22

Such was the case of the Israelites. They suffered immensely when they constantly disobeyed God. But we see how God completely restored them when they came to Him in repentance. In the same way, God can restore you too and put you in your rightful place if you come to Him in repentance.
