David praised the LORD in the presence of the whole assembly, saying, “Praise be to you, LORD, the God of our father Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Yours, LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours.”
1 Chronicles 29:10,11
Praise the Possessor of All

Do you praise the billionaires of the world? Probably not. After all, what have billionaires like Bill Gates or Jeff Bezos ever done for us? Maybe we own a Microsoft laptop or love our two-day Amazon Prime shipping, but we still had to pay for those things. They weren’t just given to us by Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos. We probably wouldn’t praise the billionaires of the world.
However, we do sing praise to the possessor of all things. Like King David, we praise our Almighty God, who is the owner of everything in heaven and earth. God created everything and possesses all greatness, power, glory, majesty, and splendor. We don’t praise Bill Gates or Jeff Bezos because of how rich they are and how much they possess. But we praise God, the possessor of all things because he is also the giver of all good things! Our God uses his greatness, power, and glory to bless us!
We can’t help but shout our praise to the one who has allowed us to possess his love in our hearts through the Holy Spirit’s work. We can’t help but shout our praise to God, who has given us Christ’s white robe of perfection to possess as our very own. We can’t help but shout our praise to God for sharing the glory of his heaven with us. Praise God, the possessor of all, who shares all he has with you!
Almighty Lord, you truly possess all things in heaven and earth. I praise you and thank you for sharing all things with me through your Son, Jesus. Amen.
