It is difficult to say which is the more astonishing!
(James Smith, "Daily Food for the Lord's Flock!" 1848)
"You are my portion, O Lord!" Psalm 119:57
"My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever!" Psalm 73:26
It is difficult to say which is the more astonishing:
that God should be our portion, or
that He should take us to be His portion!
"The Lord's portion is His people!" Deuteronomy 32:9
"Do not be afraid, for I have redeemed you. I have called you by name; you are Mine!" Isaiah 43:1
