Thou dost prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
God has prepared a table for us that is laden with everything we have inherited through Christ—every spiritual blessing, every physical blessing, every weapon we will ever need, every provision we will ever need. All there—laid out for us when we are in the presence of our enemies. The God who spoke this world into existence and created the many species and ecosystems, and gave each exactly what they needed—not only for survival, but also to work in relation to other ecosystems for mutual survival prepared a table for us … for me! An orderly, lavishly decorated table with everything we have need of, in the face of our enemies.
Jehovah Jireh—the God who sees ahead and provides for us, even before we are aware we have a need has prepared a table filled with anything and everything, and all things we have need of to stand victorious in the presence of our enemies!
When the enemy of fear comes against us, all we have to do is look at the table prepared before us and find what God has provided to combat fear—His peace, truth, and the spirit of power and a sound mind.
When the enemy of pain or sickness comes against us, we can find on this table the healing Christ paid for on the cross.
Whatever enemy comes against us—trials, distresses, financial burdens, relationship problems, addictions, worry—whatever the enemy sends our way, there on the table we will find the perfect weapon to use to defeat that enemy and stand victorious. The table is piled to overflowing, a banquet prepared by the Lord. And all we have to do is believe and feast on His provision.
Thank You Jehovah Jireh, my provider. Thank You for providing the weapons I need to stand firm against the enemy. What do I need to fear when You have provided all I need for victory? What an awesome God You are! What an amazing God You are! Amen.
I would love to hear from you. Please let me know if I can be praying for you as well.
