In Psalm 23:5 it reads You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings. This verse is just part of a beautiful Psalm that is one of my favorites. In fact it is my go to Psalm when I need to remind myself of The Good Shepherd.
A week ago I had just come home from a great conference and as I was worshipping the Lord I got such a beautiful picture of what this really looks like. Jesus our beloved King of Kings was sitting on a throne looking out upon millions of people that were singing praises such as Holy, Holy, Holy or We Exalt Thee. As I was looking at Jesus I commented that he does not Lord over his people. He then stood up and walked down among the people that were worshipping him. He was hugging and embracing them and was prepared to eat the feast amongst his people not sitting above his people.
There were tables that were 100-200 ft long and 4-6 ft wide, lavished with so much food. I can’t even begin to describe how beautiful and bountiful it was. Way off in the far distance you could see the enemy watching but unable to advance upon us as we were going to be feasting with our King Jesus.
So when you feel like the enemy has the upper hand I pray that you can remember this. Walk in the knowledge that when we call on Jesus we get him and heaven’s armies to fight the battles for us. Remember we do not fight against flesh and blood. Take time and enjoy the table that Jesus has prepared for you to feast in the presence of your enemies. Relax and trust in Jesus, enjoy the bountiful feast and just worship Jesus and watch it all change.
