Get to the table

Standard

Get to the tableIt makes me laugh the way God talks to me. I’m sure the Hollywood bigwigs did not anticipate their movies being blog material, at least not this kind of blog. But for this girl, movies are ripe for the picking.

Psalm 23 says that God will prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. I have felt the embrace of that scripture before when it seemed like the world was against me, but today, a dear friend pointed out another aspect that tweaked my thinking. She told me the Lord showed her that the enemy there is not necessarily a human enemy, but anything that may be blocking our way or causing us pain… sickness, financial strain, relationship problems, fear, whatever it may be that is keeping us from freedom and victory in this life.

You see, no matter what problem we may be facing, there is a table set before us that has answers. That table has bread if we’re hungry and medicine if we’re sick. It has what we need to survive… kind of like the cornucopia in the Hunger Games. Except we won’t get killed on the way to the table.

The table is there, and it is set for a feast. But the feast will never be consumed unless we get there. We have to do something. We have to walk up to the table and pull up a chair. We have to accept the gifts. They are not dropped in our laps, they are spread out in front of us, but it’s still up to us to get to the table.
