"Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever."
How about neither. How about God is just the right portion for what we are needing at any given moment.
Perhaps today you are walking a difficult road. Life has thrown you a curveball and you feel unsure and scared. I don't know why God has allowed this circumstance, but I do know He is completely aware of your heart and your pain.
He never intended for you to walk alone.
He is waiting for you to reach out and receive the "portion" of Himself He has for you today. He may not "take it all away" but He has a portion of who He is....enough of Himself....to carry you through today. And at the end of this road, you will have a fresh understanding of Who He is in your life.
When our heart and flesh fail, He is there. Steady. Faithful. Unmovable. Unshakeable. He becomes our Portion. Our Enough. Our Refuge. Our Wisdom. Our Comforter. Our Peace. Our Knowing He will never leave us......all these things are His portion of Himself for us.
And it is not just for today......it's for forever.
How could we ever live without Him?
