My Forever Portion
I am your share and your inheritance among the Israelites.
Read Numbers 18:11-20
What does it mean when God is our portion and our inheritance?
During the moments we feel we are in lack, either in terms of provision, time, strength, capability, or understanding, God says He is our portion. God knows what we need even before we ask Him. When our ability ends, God reveals to us that He alone is sufficient to provide everything that is lacking. Whenever we think we do not have enough, let us remember God is our portion.
There will also be instances when we feel we are not enough. The world and its standards will always make us see this way. We will always strive to gain our worldly identity and to prove to others we are more than enough, yet we never seem to find satisfaction and self-worth in the end. We are God’s chosen race and because of that truth, nothing can make us feel lesser that our true value in God. There is nothing we can even do for God to love us and value us lesser. As we remind ourselves daily to anchor our identity in God, we will always be enough because He is our portion.
Every day, let us declare that even though our flesh and our heart may fail, God is the strength of our heart and our portion forever (Psalm 73:26).
God is my strength and my portion.
Step 1: Put on a “Smile” (and if appropriate take a step back) and say to yourself: “Jesus, I need you.” (Diffuses tension, relaxes the jaw, open to change)
Step 2: Breathe In and Breathe out slowly: calms your mind, relaxes your body and renews your spirit. Gives time for the Holy Spirit to guide your thoughts, words, and actions. Disengage from the situation when appropriate. “Jesus, I trust you.”
Step 3: Love: wrap you and the person(s) or situation in the white light of love, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, and peace. Pray for those who persecute you. “Jesus I love you.”
As Jesus is all and in all, we have been given the mandate to love one another.
Jesus Christ is the game changer…Jesus, I need you, trust you and love you.
Unite all in Love for God is Love!
