Reflections: God is My Portion Forever and this is all I Need

Black text on a brown background. Text reads  Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.
 My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.

- Psalm 73:25-26 (KJV)

As Christian believers it can be very easy to get caught up in this world and begin to play the comparison game. I am guilty of this myself. It is easy to think that those who are not serving God have it better than we do. It is easy to think the ways of the world are better than the ways of God. It is easy to think that material things are worth more than serving God.

It is easy to think that it is not worth all the trouble to serve God. Well you and I are not the only ones who have felt this way, the writer of Psalm 73 in the Bible felt the same way. Read the entire chapter here to see how he felt. In the end he realized that serving God and obeying God’s word is worth it and that there is nothing in this world that is better than being with God.

I really needed this encouragement for myself. I don’t want to put the things of the world before God. I don’t want to compare myself to the world. I want to obey God instead. The reality is that this world will fade away, it will not last forever but God will be with me forever. Even if I lost everything today, I would still have God and this is all I need to make it through each day.

The song “Psalm 73 – My God’s Enough” by Barlowgirl discusses this topic, listen to the song below.

I can relate so much to this song and it has really encouraged me. I hope that it will be an encouragement to you as well.
