Because Of God's Great Love
Because of God’s great love we are not consumed
His mercies never fail, they are tried and true.
Chapter three verse twenty two. [Lam 3:22]
Every new day more sign of His love I see.
Great is His faithfulness to me.
Chapter three verse twenty three. [Lam 3:23]
God’s my portion; I’m secure!
God my hope for evermore.
Chapter three verse twenty four. [Lam 3:24]

These are terrific verses, and it’s no wonder they’ve been set to music multiple times already. So, one more can’t hurt… surely?
But what does the writer means when he says “God is my portion”?
The language appears several times in the Old Testament (see Psalm 73:26 especially), and speaks of God giving us His very self! We need look nowhere else for our equipping or sustaining. He does not give us tools, or advice. Rather, He gives us Himself! He is our reward. He is our inheritance. He is our Prize!
