therefore I have hope.
The Lord is my portion. But what does that mean?
1: an individual's part or share of something: as
a : a share received by gift or inheritance
b : dowry
c : enough food especially of one kind to serve one person at one meal
2: an individual's lot, fate, or fortune : one's share of good and evil
I am still learning what this means exactly, day after day of walking with Him slowly teaches me that He is all I need, He is my source of hope.
We recently walked through some difficult days financially. I begged God for this one thing and in the end I had to let that thing go. I searched the scriptures for His promises, something that would quiet my heart and reassure me that we would not hit that one milestone I was so afraid of….I read that He never leaves us forsaken, that our seed will never beg for bread but in my heart I knew He was whispering:
If you lose it all, can you still believe and know that I am enough? What if I say no again? Can you surrender this also, and still hope in me?
We didn’t lose it all but I did have to let go that thing that I treasured so much. It hurt, I won’t lie but you know what? He was, He is, He always will be enough.
The Lord is my inheritance, my good thing….I have hope because I have Him. And because I have Him I am enough because He is more than enough.
