God Has A Special Portion Just For You

God Has A Special Portion Just For You by Keith Cook

"Two things I asked of You, Do not refuse me before I die: Keep deception and lies far from me, Give me neither poverty nor riches; Feed me with the food that is my portion." Proverbs 30:7, 8

How many times have you actually told God, "I don't want to be rich or poor, but I want my portion?" Most of us constantly bombard Heaven with requests for riches and rewards.

As an international evangelist, I have traveled across the globe, and I have come in contact with many who are poor, having just the clothes on their backs. Though they may not have as much as many others have, they still have what they really need. They have what they need to serve God. They have a rich understanding of what it means to praise God. They also are consistently giving back to God their service and devotion that can not be measured by the monetary standards of this earth. Their lives and love is priceless to God and being in relationship with Jesus is precious to them.

A person's real value is not in how rich or poor they are, but in how they are using their portion from God!

What does God want for your life?

In certain parts of the world, the basic necessities of life may not be as great as in other geographical locations. God allows some to have riches and some to live on meager means, but He wants all to find His portion for their lives and honor Him in all that they have.

Find out God's plan for your life, and remain firm in your commitments to Him. Some people can not handle riches, others can not handle poverty. On the other hand, they can handle what God gives them as their portion. This is not an excuse for not succeeding or having goals. This also does not mean that God is for wealthy Christians not sharing their wealth. As God gives He also directs. God has blessed all of us to be a blessing. Give away some love, kindness, service, offerings, and portions today!

My challenge to you today is to seek the Lord, find out from Him what you need to sustain you. Live on these truths, trust in God, and act in obedience to Him.

Daily Prayer: Pray that God will keep deception and lies far from you. Pray that He will give you neither poverty nor riches, but feed you with the food that is your portion.
