Psalm 16: 5 ” Yahweh assigned my portion and my cup. You made my lot secure. ” The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and my cup. With what confidence and bounding joy does Jesus turn to Yahweh whom his soul possessed and delighted in! – Psalm 73: 26 ” My flesh and my heart may fail. But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. “
We, too, can boast in the Lord; He is the meat and the drink of our souls. He is our share, supplying all our necessities and our cup yielding Royal Luxuries; our cup in this life, and our birthright in the life to come.
Jeremiah 9: 23 ” Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches. “ As children of the Father who is in heaven, we inherit by virtue of our joint heir-ship with Jesus, all the riches of the covenant of grace, and the allocation which falls to us sets upon our table the bread of heaven and the new wine of the kingdom. – Hebrews 1: 2 ” In these days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. “God gives abundantly to all the works of His hands; He causes the sun to shine upon the evil and upon the good, and the rain to descend upon the just and the unjust; but it cannot be conceived that He should give himself to be our Measure, our Friend, our Father, our Husband, but in plenty of love.
