I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today is from the book of Psalms 16: 5, 6 “You O lord are the portion of my inheritance, and my cup. You maintain my lot. The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places. Yes I have a good inheritance.’’
From the above passage we see how Jesus turns to God with great confidence and bounding joy. He delighted in God the Father, even while he was in his sorest sorrows; He still laid hold of His Father. Although He was tempted yet He never stooped to worship the prince of this world.
Similarly we too can make our boast in the Lord. He is our portion supplying all our necessities for our life on this earth and in the life to come. As children of the Father, who is in heaven, we inherit, by virtue of our joint heir ship with Jesus.
In this psalm we see, that David, flees to God’s protection with cheerful, believing confidence. Those who have avowed that the God is their Lord should often live up to it. You must devote yourself to the honour of God in the service of the saints. We need to be saints on earth in order to be saints in heaven. Those who have been renewed by the grace of God and devoted to the glory of God are saints on the earth. Our God is great and greatly to be praised. Shulamite in Songs of Solomon, says, “’My beloved is handsome, yes pleasant. He is ruddy and white. Chief among ten thousand.”’ So great is our God.
Can such a great God give his children that which is worthless. The Lord, who is great will always, be of great value. There is a saying that goes on to say, “’ Tell me your friend and I will tell you who you are”’ the more you get acquainted with a person; you tend to inherit all his qualities or his nature. You will soon become more like him. For you will begin to reflect his qualities.
Today you are looking out to that great God, who will give you the best. When you consider God as your inheritance and think of all the good things that God has provided for you, then you will be blessed without any doubt. Make God your treasure. It is He who gives you all that you need from His store house. There is nothing more to lose in life if you have received the Lord Jesus as your saviour and Lord of your life. For He is the maker of heaven and earth, the sea and everything in them. It doesn’t matter what you lose or how much you lose but if you store Jesus within you, then God almighty will rule your hearts and mind. The Bible says, “’You should seek the Lord in the hope, that they might feel for him and find Him Though He is not far from each one of us.” If only you seek him you will find him.” For you can do nothing without God.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord helps us to take hold of God at all times. May we acquire the qualities of Jesus. Be more humble, more righteous and also, longsuffering. Let the Lord be the portion, and inheritance of our life. Teach us to seek the Lord while He may be found. May we receive the best from God who is great and awesome in Nature.
