Our Portion

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Psalm 119:57-64 (Heth)

"The LORD is my portion..."

The opening words of the stanza titled Heth, Psalm 119:57-64, captured my attention. They caused me to pause to think about God being my "portion" and what exactly that means to me and for how I live my life--in private and before others. After declaring that the Lord is his portion, the psalmist then spends the remainder of the stanza laying out what that means and looks like in his life.

Do you think of God as being your "portion"? What does "The Lord is my portion" mean to you personally? What actions and behaviors display this? Tami

Makes me think of the words to the old hymn, "Riches I heed not, nor man's empty praise; Thou mine inheritance, now and always."

The Lord is mine--no matter what others have or get in life, the Lord is mine--and I am often overwhelmed with His favor. It means I have the most precious gift there is. As He is my portion, I especially love others who also have the Lord in their lives.
