“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“Therefore I wait for Him.”
Lamentations 3:24 New American Standard Bible
Another word for portion is inheritance. God is our inheritance. He is all that we need. This portion of scripture is one of my favorites. Written by Jeremiah, called the weeping prophet, this chapter comes in the middle of a book of sorrow and weeping (hence “lamentations.) He takes a break from his sorrow to express faith and hope in God, giving encouragement to others in their times of sorrow. God’s mercies are new every morning. It is good to seek and wait for God. We can and should wait for God because He is our portion. He is what we need, and we will not find satisfaction, help or anything else aside from Him. This world pretends to have the answers, and offers help and solutions, but they don’t satisfy. Often, they only increase our longings and desires.
What do you seek? What do you long for? Seek the Lord. Find your comfort, help and satisfaction in Him alone. He is all you need!
