You’re invited

You prepare a table for me in the presence of my enemies ~ Psalm 23:5

I love Psalm 23. It’s comforting and reassuring, reminding me God is with me no matter what.
I mostly focused though on the first few verses but recently verse 5 has been on my mind and in my heart.

In these difficult and often unsocial times we find ourselves in I’m kind of excited at the prospect of being invited to dinner!
When I read this line, I can’t help but get excited. It’s so full of promise I don’t know how I missed it. I guess it is a word for such a time as this
You see, God is preparing a table for us, yep, you’re invited too, in the presence of our enemies. Just let that soak in.
Firstly, hooray we made the guest list.
God has not left us out. Don’t count yourself out. I know it has seemed like nothings happening but that’s because God has been so busy preparing this bountiful, exquisite table for us
And guess what? He’s doing it right in the presence of our enemies!!! But why? Why in their presence? I’m sure you’d eat better if they weren’t there….right?
But you see God is showing us off, yep its a power move. He’s doing it right in the presence of our enemies and no our enemies don’t go by names like Joan and Jack, our enemies are named lack, poverty, unemployment, unbelief, doubt and fear.
God is showing us that He is able to meet all our needs according to His riches and glory in Christ Jesus. So right when it looks like things are not working out, when things seem not to be moving when lack knocks at the door, God is saying I invite you to sit down and feast with me. Despite whatever challenges we face, God has a table prepared for His children. His supply goes beyond whatever natural limitations we see. He is our host and as such, He is our provider and our protector. As long as we are seated with Christ He has us covered. Be seated with Him today. Rest in Him, enjoy His presence and allow Him to be your host as you partake in the goodness of God.
