It is difficult to say…

(James Smith, “Daily Food for the Lord’s Flock!” 1848)

“You are my portion, O Lord!” Psalm 119:57

“My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever!” Psalm 73:26

It is difficult to say which is the more astonishing:
that God should be our portion, or
that He should take us to be His portion!

“The Lord’s portion is His people!” Deuteronomy 32:9

“Do not be afraid, for I have redeemed you. I have called you by name; you are Mine!” Isaiah 43:1
