Daily in Your Presence - Aug. 16

Conversations with a loving Father based on the qualities of God

Day 229


You are my portion, O Lord;

I have promised to obey your words.

Psalm 119:57

My child, do you know how much your obedience blesses Me? Just like an earthly parent, I love to hear you say, "Yes, Father." Do you know I love to say "yes" to you, as well? I love to bless My children—wonderfully, completely, extravagantly. Let Me be your portion—the One you value above all others. Daily, let's fellowship and share our love together.

Of all the things I treasure most, You are my most prized possession, Lord. Like a river of hope running through my life, You are my portion and my inheritance, a continual blessing each day.  Lord, I need nothing but You.


If all your earthly possessions were removed, would Jesus be enough?
