What does Lamentations 3:24 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Lamentations 3:24

The Lord [is] my portion, saith my soul
The prophet, or the church, whom he represents, rises and increases in the exercise of faith; from considering the mercies, compassions, and faithfulness of God, concludes a sure and firm interest in him, as a portion and inheritance. The Lord is the portion of his people in life and in death, in time and to eternity; all he is, and has, is theirs; they are heirs of him, and shall enjoy him for ever, and therefore shall not be consumed; he is a portion large and full, inexpressibly rich and great, a soul satisfying one, and will last for ever. And happy are those, who from their hearts, and with their souls, under a testimony of the Spirit of God to their spirits, and through a gracious experience of him, can say he is their portion and exceeding great reward, as the church here did; and these may say with her, as follows: therefore will I hope in him:
for deliverance from all evils and enemies; for present supplies of grace; and for the enjoyment of future glory and happiness.
