She also rises while it is yet night, And provides food for her household, And a portion for her maidservants. (Pro 31:15)
One Bible use of the word portion means the following: a prescribed task, prescribed portion, prescribed limit, an enactment, decree or ordinance, an action prescribed for oneself as in resolve; a specific decree or law in general, a condition or decree, a civil enactment prescribed by God – a statute, ordinance, limit, something prescribed, due.
The Proverbs woman instructed her household, giving her servants portions, or tasks, each morning. In a similar way we have God-given talents and creativity, portions from Him, assignments and tasks that carry corresponding mandates to utilize those wisely, be available to lead in those areas if necessary, and train others when the opportunity arises.
As worshippers . . . the Lord is our portion, another use of the word meaning we are joined to Him because of His goodness to us; He is our portion, our reward and relationship makes all the difference. We are not servants but sons!
As sons . . . we steward the Kingdom through portionsGod gives. Today, declare new strength and resolve for proper use of your time and talents. Ask the Holy Spirit to direct use of your time and help to guard your choices for stewardship of the treasure within.
Make a list of those you are impacting now. Make a second list of those who are waiting! See the destiny involved—theirs and yours. Enlarge your vision. Get portions and go!
