Psalm 73:26 My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
I'm just going to go ahead and admit it. I'm not what you'd call well endowed. In fact before I had kids I was a bit concerned about this whole breastfeeding deal. I read books that said my children wouldn't starve but I wasn't convinced.
Much to my relief but not to my surprise God designed my body perfectly to provide for the physical needs of my baby girls. There was rarely too little or too much. Most days my supply was just right.
Today's chapter is the 16th Psalm. David praises God for His many gifts - protection, provision and presence. This phrase really caught my eye: "Lord you have assigned me my portion and cup."
Each day we face a plethora of challenges. Sometimes I wonder if God gives me more than I can handle. This passage assures me that's not the case. God has assigned me a portion and serving of His grace, strength and patience that is just enough to walk victoriously.
He doesn't give me too much because I might begin to mistakenly believe I am the source of the victory. He doesn't give me too little little because He delights in seeing His children overcome the odds. His grace is just right.
Jesus, as a child I read about Goldilocks. I never really appreciated her find of just the right size of chair or temperature of porridge until this morning. Because You are enough what You give me is not too much. Your portion is not too small and not too big. It's just right.
