“This God Is Our God!” 1896
“The LORD’s portion is His people!” Deuteronomy 32:9
“The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I hope in Him!” Lamentations 3:24
The above two passages of Scripture ought never to be separated. God and my soul possess each other. God finds his portion in His people–and His people find their portion in God!
This God is mine, in all His glorious perfection! 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.
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, “This God is my God forever and ever! He will be my guide even unto death!” Psalm 48:14
