Our God is a safe portion, a secure portion.  He is a portion whom no one can rob you of.  He is a portion whom no one can touch or take from you.  He is a portion whom no one can cheat or spoil you of.  God is such a portion that no friend, no foe, and no devil can ever rob you of.  O Christians, God is yours in Christ, and so yours by covenant, yours by promise, yours by purchase, yours by conquest, yours by marriage union and communion, yours by earnest of the Spirit, and yours by the feelings and witnesses of the Spirit, that no power on earth can ever pilfer your portion, or cheat, or rob you of your portion.  He is not only your God for the present – O no!  He will be our God forever and ever…Our God is a suitable portion.  No object is as suitable to the heart as He is.  He is a portion who is exactly suited to the condition of the soul in its desires, needs, wants, longings, and prayers.  All the soul needs is found in God.  There is light to enlighten the soul, wisdom to counsel the soul, power to support the soul, goodness to supply the soul, mercy to pardon the soul, and fullness to fill the soul.  Health is not more suitable to a sick man, wealth to a poor man, bread to a hungry man, drink to a thirsty man, clothes to a naked man, balm to a wounded man, ease to a tormented man, and pardon to a condemned man, than this portion is to all the needs of man.  No earthly portion can suit an immortal soul. – Thomas Brooks (1608-1680)
