God Is Your Inheritance & Portion

Dr. Paul Dhinakaran
08 May
Dear friend, may this day be a great blessing. Today’s promise from God is found in Psalm 16:5 which says, “Yahweh, You alone are my inheritance. You are my prize, my pleasure, my portion. You hold my destiny and my timing is in Your hands.” Yes, dear friend, in this portion David surrenders himself totally in the hands of God.
When David talks about God being His inheritance, he says, “Oh Lord, all that I need to live in this world is You. Every blessing is contained in You because You have paid the price on the cross for me to have every blessing and every inheritance.” It is not just the inheritance that you receive from your earthly father or earthly mother. It might be precious but it might just be things such as lands, gold and riches.  But the inheritance that Jesus has given us through His sacrifice on the cross is life itself.

What God gives us will be complete blessings. That’s why David said, “Lord You are my complete inheritance. All good gifts are in You.” Even today the Lord longs to hear this from you. Let us ask for Jesus. In Isaiah 58:14 we see such a blessing, “Then you will find your joy in the LORD, and I will cause you to ride in triumph on the heights of the land and to feast on the inheritance of your father Jacob.” The mouth of the Lord has spoken.” Yes, you are going to find your joy in the Lord as He becomes your inheritance. Secondly, He is our prize. 1 Corinthians 9:24-27, “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.” As we live for Jesus, He is our prize, our crown of righteousness.
Thirdly, the Bible talks about pleasure. David says, “You are my pleasure Lord.” In Matthew 12:18 God says, “Here is my servant whom I have chosen, the one I love, in whom I delight; I will put My Spirit on him, and he will proclaim justice to the nations.” God says the same to you. You are His pleasure, You are His delight. That’s why you are able to say, “Lord, You are my joy and You are my all.” David too said, “Even my family is lesser than You Lord.” We too should say, “Lord, more than spending my time with family and so on, I love to be with You for You are my pleasure.” Finally, David says, “You are my portion.” In Ephesians 5:30 the Bible says, “For we are members of His [Jesus] body, of His flesh and of His bones.” Yes, dear friend, you belong to God. His life will flow into your body and you will be connected to glory. You are greatly blessed. Praise God for this blessing. God bless you.
Loving Father,

Thank You for this special grace that You have promised today. Make me enjoy complete blessings and may You be my all till Your coming.
In Jesus’ precious name, I pray. Amen.
