Know ye that the Lord He is God: it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture. [Psalms 100: 3 KJV]

Belonging to God means that we have been set apart for Him, not because of our actions, but because of His choice. We belong to God because He made us to be His very own people. He watches over us, keeps us in all our ways and provides our every need.

When you give your life to Christ, you become consecrated unto God and adopted into His family (Ephesians 1:5).
This simple truth of knowing whom you belong to can transform your life. It can give you profound reassurance of your self-worth. We matter because we belong to the God. The fact that we belong to God also gives order to our lives. We are first and foremost God’s people. Thus, all of our other roles in life must be seen in the light of this primary reality. You may be a lawyer or manager or teacher, but you are first of all one of God’s people. You may be a father or a mother or a friend, but you are first of all one of God’s people. How you live in each of these other roles will be shaped by your primary relationship with God as someone who belongs to Him. 1 Peter 2:9 says, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.” This means that you have indeed been set apart unto God; set apart from sin, sickness, poverty and death, unto righteousness, holiness, victory, prosperity and divine health.

God loves us more than we can think of. His love for us knows no limits, no boundaries, and nothing can separate us from His love because we belong to Him. Romans 8:38-39 says, “I’m convinced that nothing can separate us from God’s love in Christ Jesus our Lord: not death or life, not angels or rulers, not present things or future things, not powers or height or depth, or any other thing that is created.” This means that NOTHING, can erase the fact that you belong to God through Jesus Christ. See yourself like one who belongs to God and begin to walk accordingly. Shalom.

I’ve been crucified with Christ; it’s no longer I who live, but Christ lives in and through me. Therefore, I present my body as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto the Lord, which is my reasonable service. I glorify the Lord in my spirit, soul, and body, making them vents for His righteousness. AMEN!
