“The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. ‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I have hope in Him.’ The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the person who seeks Him”
Sing praise to our Lord Jesus Christ and our Abba Father, to Him Who is our “portion” now and forever!
Yesterday I shared some beautiful scriptures with you concerning the Lord being our portion. When we declare “the Lord is my portion,” this means we are looking solely to our Lord, Himself, as our source and supply, our daily strength, and goodness, and presence, which He IS! We saw, two days ago, that God’s priestly call and blessing to us, specifically, is that “You shall have no inheritance in their land nor any portion among them; I am your portion and your inheritance among the sons of Israel’” (Numbers 18:20).
One of the truly outstanding blessings of our being priests unto our Lord (1st Peter 2, Revelation 1:5-6) is that, as such, we are in the best possible place to behold the fullest application of “the Lord is my portion.” It is true to say that every time we minster to our Lord, we re-enforce the truth that the Lord IS our portion, our life, our strength, our light, our love, and our goodness.
There are a few different Hebrew words used for the word “portion” throughout the Old Testament. Yet, every single one of the verses I have shared with you from the Old Testament saying “the Lord is my portion” all use the same word for “portion,” which is “cheleq.”
“Cheleq” has these following meanings: portion, inheritance, share, reward, legacy, territory.
The Lord is my portion! The Lord is my inheritance! The Lord is my share! The Lord is my reward! The Lord is my legacy! The Lord is my territory! Hallelujah!
God has committed Himself completely to us as our portion.
I pray that every time we minister to our Lord that we will behold and understand even more that “the Lord is my portion.” God Himself is our territory, our inheritance forever, and the place we reside, in safety, right now. Hallelujah!
