Dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of Psalm 16:5 says, “You O LORD are the portion of my inheritance and my cup. You maintain my lot”. Portion of my cup means, “My fortune” The Psalmist David , totally depended upon God for all his needs. He considers, having God in his life, as the greatest fortune.
David himself says, that he has acquired a good inheritance from God. He also claims that the boundary lines of his territory have fallen for him in pleasant places. Therefore David exalts God as quoted by Shulamite in Songs of Solomon 5:10, “My Beloved is white and ruddy, chief among ten thousands. Anything that comes from an extraordinary person will always be something wonderful. Our Father in heaven is an extraordinary God. And what comes from an extraordinary God will always, be excellent, marvellous, and wonderful. A person can be identified, how good or how bad he is by the friends he mingles with. He usually adapts the nature and characteristic of his close associate. Likewise if we have good acquaintance with God or have an intimate relationship with God then we will also be like Him in our nature. Our characteristics will also change like that of our heavenly father. When such a God blesses his children, He will give the best. He will not give that which is blemished but that which is good. Hereafter the Lord will give you all things that are superb, that are excellent and best in your life.
Psalm 16:5says, “Lord You are the portion of my inheritance”. Today make God your wealth, your good portion in your life. Don’t worry whether you have wealth or not because you have God as the portion of your inheritance. God who gives that which is best has become your wealth in such a case you won’t lack anything. He is a God who gives you wealth. Isaiah 48:17 says, “The holy God of Israel, the LORD who saves you, says: “I am the LORD your God, who teaches you to profit, who leads you by the way that you should go.” Such a God has become your portion. Then you can obtain whatever you expect from him. The God of wonders is within you. And so you have a great wealth that you could not afford to lose it. He is Jesus Christ. You might have lost your house or your job, or all that you consider as wealth. But you have not lost the one who grants all the wealth. If God is with you then you are blessed. In case God is not with you then your conscience would be spoilt, and your days would have come to an end. But when you have begun to search for God, that itself is an indication that God is within you. He is your wealth He is your portion, as long as you have not lost Him. Since God is within you it is possible for you to get all that you desire in life. With God in your life, all things are possible.
God bless you.
Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. I pray that You may bless Your dear children. Lord, as they continue to read Your word every day, may You shape them to become a perfect vessel for Your glory. Help them to inherit You as their wealth in their lives. In Jesus Name we pray,
