The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup, you hold my lot. The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places, indeed I have a beautiful inheritance.
That inheritance is seen clearly in Ephesians 1:11-14
This inheritance, the kingdom of God and all its blessings, first and foremost the clearest relational reality of Him who is our good, shall be the possession of all those who respond in faith to the crucified and risen Son of God. Such is indeed a mystery, the people called to Christ, from Jew and Gentile, from every tribe, tongue and language - He shall be their portion and inheritance forever in the Kingdom where there is no disgrace of human sin. Verses 7-11 - It is God who gives instruction and counsel to his people, as we set him before us at all times. Walking, living, and loving in as constant a communion with him that we can, this is the place of his presence, a place of stability, firmness, a place which is not shaken. It is in this, the presence of God at our sides, that we receive a deep gladness of heart - the psalmist declare - my whole being rejoices! Oh, to have such gladness for my own life - some days the raptures of joy are there, but other days it ever dry and weary. The life in His presence is unending as God does not abandon the soul, he makes known to us the path of life, in his presence their is fullness of joy - at his right hand there are pleasures forevermore. Such should be the song of the children of God - to find their deepest and abiding pleasure in God himself and to enjoy and love all others, and other things only for his sake. Quick Note on Verse 10 - This is quoted by Paul in Acts 13:35 - referencing this to Jesus - that this Psalm predicts and points to the resurrection of Christ himself. Thus this Psalm serves as a great reminder of his resurrection and of our own - coming in the glorious inheritance we await. Out... --------
11 In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, 12 so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory. 13 In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, 14 who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.
