This Week’s Message:
The word “portion” means inheritance, share, possession or award (from God).
I this chapter of Lamentations we read the laments of Jeremiah. He speaks of his many sorrows and trials and says he feels the LORD has forgotten him,
and his strength and hope are waning, but then.his soul remembers who it belongs to and what it has inherited and it rises up inside of Jeremiah to strenghten him
and remind him that he should hope, for the LORD Himself is Jeremiah’s inheritance, and with Him he will receive eternal life.
This verse is a good one for us to memorize and recall to our minds when we might become discouraged and feeling that the LORD has forgotten us.
We can use it to encourage ourselves that we have so much more than these earthly possessions, we have a heavenly inheritance, a share in the LORD’s kingdom,
our souls will dwell with the LORD for eternity, so let;s memorize this verse and encourage our souls with it daily.
