Gift of God
What is your portion?
King David wrote in Psalms 16:5 that the Lord was his portion:-
“The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.”
This morning let’s meditate on the Gift of God, given to each of us as our portion. There are at least 14 scriptures where we are taught about the gift. Salvation is a gift and so is His Grace. Check them out.
Today we will consider 2 of them:-
(1) John 4:10
“Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.”
Jesus told the Samaritan woman at the well that He is the Living Water. This is His gift to us. In life, there will be occasions when we will thirst for water just like the woman at the well. But if we seek Him, He will be the Living Water to us! Amen?
The next scripture is in Ecclesiastes.
(2) Ecclesiastes 3:13
“And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.”
Here Job wrote of the vagaries of life and explained why and how we should learn to accept and be contented what has been given to us. Some may have more than us but we must not envy them. Instead, we should honour God by giving Him thanks in all and everything. That’s the teachings in Philippians.
So dear Brethren, let’s be happy and be thankful for our family, our job and our possession. They are our portions. It is the Gift of God!
