“My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
My husband and I were driving along listening to some new music when the lyrics of one particular song caught our attention. The song was “Your Love Defends Me” by Matt Maher. The bridge goes like this “We sing Hallelujah, You’re my portion, my salvation”
Have you ever read something or even said it aloud not completely understanding its meaning? This was one of those moments for me. What exactly was I singing when I said “you are my portion?” I immediately went to Google and found this scripture. “My heart and my flesh may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
Further study revealed that everything we will ever have need of, whether that be love, provision or forgiveness can be found in Jesus. We will never lack anything as long as we have Him in our lives.
Feeling tired and weary? He can be your strength today!
Feeling like a failure and unworthy? He has never once failed and loves beyond what our minds can comprehend.
Struggling with direction and purpose for your life? He will make your path straight and lead you into victory!
Rest today, knowing that you will never be in need of anything as long as you allow God to be in control.
I’m so thankful today Lord that You my portion. You are my Provider and everything I will ever have need of can be found in You. This gives me hope today, and I choose to believe You are truly all I need.
