The Lord Is My Chosen Portion

On these cold mornings in winter I wake up every morning and say an extra thank you to God for my warm house and warm bed! My mind begins to take in the countless blessings He has poured out in my life. I am so grateful for the beautiful relationships, experiences and possessions which I enjoy! And how can I ever thank him for health, family, faith, hope and love? I am even more blessed by knowing that death will not be the end, but only the beginning of even better and eternal inheritances!

Note that this song however says that the Lord Himself is our inheritance! This is similar to what he said to the Levites in the Old Testament. The rest of Israel inherited land. But the Lord Himself was the inheritance of the priests! The New Testament says we are a royal priesthood. Therefore truly our very best and most exceeding blessing is our relationship with the Lord Himself! The Apostle Paul said, I have thrown away everything else, and count it as rubbish, in order that I might know Christ! To know Christ is the greatest blessing. His constant presence by the Spirit, his daily illumination of his word to me, and the confidence I have to overcome every challenge, remind me that the Lord Himself is my richest and most beautiful inheritance!
