I am my Beloved's — and my Beloved is mine!

(Archibald Brown, "This God Our God!")

"I am my Beloved's — and my Beloved is mine!" Song of Songs 6:3

There are two passages in the Scripture which ought never to be separated.

One is
"The LORD's portion is His people." Deuteronomy 32:9. That is God's side.

And the other passage is this:
"The LORD is my portion." Lamentations 3:24

God and I possess each other. God finds His portion in His people — and His people find their portion in God.

His heart is mine — for He loves me.
His ear is mine — for I may pour into it all my tales of sorrow and all my songs of joy.
His eyes are mine — for they watch me from morning until night.
His hand is mine — for it is stretched out to uphold me.
This God is mine — in all His glorious perfections!


Oh, He is a God of infinite glory. Abased in the very dust, and half bewildered by the thought, I yet dare to look up, and say, "T
his God is my God forever and ever! He will be my guide even until death!" Psalm 48:14
