God Is My Portion Forever
What more do I need?
Psalms 16:5: The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.
Treasury Of David comments on Psalms 16:5: The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup.
With what confidence and bounding joy does Jesus turn to Jehovah, whom his soul possessed and delighted in! Content beyond measure with his portion in the Lord his God, he had not a single desire with which to hunt after other gods; his cup was full, and his heart was full too; even in his sorest sorrows he still laid hold with both his hands upon his Father, crying, *My God, my God;* he had not so much as a thought of falling down to worship the prince of this world, although tempted with an *all these will I give thee.* We, too, can make our boast in the Lord; he is the meat and the drink of our souls. He is our portion, supplying all our necessities, and our cup yielding royal luxuries; our cup in this life, and our inheritance in the life to come. As children of the Father who is in heaven, we inherit, by virtue of our joint heirship with Jesus, all the riches of the covenant of grace; and the portion which falls to us sets upon our table the bread of heaven and the new wine of the kingdom. Who would not be satisfied with such dainty diet? Our shallow cup of sorrow we may well drain with resignation, since the deep cup of love stands side by side with it, and will never be empty.
Psalms73:26: My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever. 119:57 Thou art my portion, O LORD: I have said that I would keep thy words. 142:5 I cried unto thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living.
Lamentations 3:24: The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
Deuteronomy 32:9a: For the LORD*S portion is his people; . . .
Is He your portion? Do you possess Him? Does He possess you? If He never becomes your portion and you never become His, you will have a horrible future.
Psalms 11:6: Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.
