“‘I am my Beloved’s and my Beloved is mine!’ (Song of Songs 6:3)
There are two passages in the Scripture which ought never to be separated.
One is ‘The LORD’s portion is His people.’ (Deuteronomy 32:9) That is God’s side. And the other passage is this: ‘The LORD is my portion.’ (Lamentations 3:24) God and I possess each other. God finds His portion in His people — and His people find their portion in God.”
“His heart is mine — for He loves me.
His ear is mine — for I may pour into it all my tales of sorrow and all my songs of joy.
His eyes are mine — for they watch me from morning until night.
His hand is mine — for it is stretched out to uphold me.
This God is mine — in all His glorious perfections!”
“Oh, He is a God of infinite glory. Abased in the very dust, and half bewildered by the thought, I yet dare to look up, and say, ‘This God is my God forever and ever! He will be my guide even until death!’” (Psalm 48:14)
