The LORD Is Your Portion

Those who run after other gods will suffer more and more. I will not pour out libations of blood to such gods or take up their names on my lips.
LORD, you alone are my portion and my cup; you make my lot secure.
The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.
I will praise the LORD,
who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.
I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With Him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

Psalm 16:4-8

There is no better portion to have in life than the assurance of a confident relationship with the Almighty God, Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus.  
All other gods are false and unreliable.
Having God as your portion assures you of security and a delightful inheritance. The boundary lines of life will fall for you in pleasant places because God delights in giving the very best to His children. Having God as your portion does not mean a trouble-free life but it does guarantee joy, pleasure and confidence even in the midst of a storm. This is because the Bible tells us that God's plans for us are for our good and not for evil and that He works all things out together for our good.

I want to encourage you to reflect over what you truly possess as a child of God.
Having God as your portion means God is your Protector and Provider.
It means God counsels and instructs you. It means God is at your right hand and you will not be shaken. Be confident because God is your Portion.

Prayer: LORD, I thank you that you are my portion in life. Help me not to delight in anything but you. Surely, the boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places.
Because you are at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
