The Good Portion ~ A
16 August, 2017
God made man in His image.
It is only as a man lives in God's image he will find lasting satisfaction. Anything less is short-changing life, and offers little fuel for today or tomorrow.
The heart turns the hands to many activities, and the head turns the heart to many schemes. But, it is not until the heart turns the head to the Lord alone that Jesus becomes a man's portion to life.
If He is my first portion I will never have any need to seek a second portion, a lesser fuel. A second portion will be further away from Him and can never fuel with satisfaction.
We are made for God and nothing less will really satisfy us. ~ Brennan Manning
Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. (Psalm 73:25-26)
The Lord must be my first portion if I am ever to find my fill.
POSTSCRIPT: The man who chases this world's many gusts and winds chooses a whirlwind for his children.
