Psalms 119:57-Thou art my portion, O LORD: I have said that I would keep thy words.

 

 

Psalms 119:57-Thou art my portion, O LORD: I have said that I would keep thy words.

   I love pies during the holiday season. And if you are like me I want to make sure that I receive my fair portion of the pie. Sometimes we are not satisfied with the portion that is given to us and go for that second piece. We are not content! As Christians we can become dissatisfied with what God has given us. We become discontent in the things of God.
  The Psalmist wrote  in v. 57 “Thou art my portion”. David was declaring here that God was sufficient for all his needs. In Psalm 37:25, David wrote “ I have been young and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging for bread.  We live in a generation that has more things and conveniences than our grandparents had in their time. And I believe this has caused our generation to be a spoiled and unthankful. Therefore as Christians we must make the choice each day to be thankful and satisfied with the things God has provide to us.
   How do we do this? First, by making the word of God a part of our daily walk.  David wrote in the second part of v.57 “I have said that I would keep thy words”. David also wrote later in Psalms 119:103 “How sweet are thy words unto my taste! Yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” God’s word was satisfying to him. Is it satisfying to you?  It is the word of God that feeds our spirit and gives us the wisdom that we need to make right decision in our lives.
   Secondly, how do we stay satisfied as a Christian, by praising Him with thanksgiving. David wrote in v.62 “ At midnight I will rise to give(300) thanks unto thee..”.  So when you are thinking that you did not receive that certain portion of pie in life, thank Him for the portion that He gave you. There is a song we sing in our hymn book “Count Your Blessings” We  have so many blessings and so much to be thankful for!
