“THE LORD MY PORTION”

The Lord is my portion, says my soul; therefore I will hope in Him.” Lamentations 3:24

“‘The Lord’s portion is His people, Israel is the lot of His inheritance.’ And oh, what a Portion is God! All that He is and all that He has is ours! Every attribute of His being is over us, every perfection of His nature encircles us, every pulse of His heart beats for us, every glance of His eye smiles upon us. We dwell in God, and God dwells in us. It is not the world which is our portion, but HE who made, upholds and governs the world. It is not the creature who is our portion, but the Lord of angels and the Creator of men. Infinite portion! Illimitable power! Immeasurable grace! Boundless love! All-satisfying good! All, all is ours!”
