Be Happy with Your Portion

LORD, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing. You guard all that is mine.

(Psalm 16:5 NLT)

I believe that God has assigned each of us our portion in life and if we believe that we’ll lead contented lives. We’ll quit trying to be like someone else because we’d realize that we were each assigned a different portion. On a number of occasions, I’ve refused to do or pursue something just because that’s what someone else wanted for me. Perhaps it was what God intended for someone else, but it was clearly not what He wanted for me. Truly, our portion lies with God, and not us or what someone else would like for us. Therefore, we can be at peace knowing that we have nothing to gain or lose since our portion has already been assigned to us by God Himself.

Be content with your portion in life.
