“I am your portion and your inheritance.”
[Num 18:20 NET]
Whom do I have in heaven but you? I desire no one but you on earth. My flesh and my heart may grow weak, but God always protects my heart and gives me stability.
Lord, you give me stability and prosperity; you make my future secure. It is as if I have been given fertile fields or received a beautiful tract of land.
“My portion is the Lord,” I have said to myself, so I will put my hope in him.
I claim your rules as my permanent possession, for they give me joy.
O God, you are my God! I long for you! My soul thirsts for you, my flesh yearns for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water. … For you are my deliverer; under your wings I rejoice.
My lover is mine and I am his.
[Ps 73:25-26, Ps 16:5-6, Lam 3:24, Ps 119:111, Ps 63:1, Ps 63:7, Song 2:16]
