I have to Get to the Table

I have to get to the table

I have to Get to the Table

Psalm 23: 5
“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies, you anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.”

In the journey of life, God supplies all your needs according to His riches in Glory. Even when it feels like you are on your own, you are not. God is always with you, and He promises to be with you until the end of time.

 

You are never abandoned, orphaned, or neglected. As soon as you surrender your life to the Lord, He takes up the responsibility of caring for your needs and your destiny. He prepares a table before you.

 

Always lookout for the opportunities that God has sent to sustain you in all the seasons of your life. There is never a season where He has not made provision for you. The great God is looking out for you and keeping you on purpose because He is a loving Father.

1 Sam 20: 14-16
And you shall not only show me the kindness of the LORD while I live, that I may not die;
But you shall not cut off your kindness from my house forever, no not when
the LORD has cut off every one of the enemies of David from the face of the earth.
So Jonathan made a covenant with the house of David, saying, “Let the LORD require it at the hand of David’s enemies.”

 

God loves you and is in covenant with you. When you gave your life to Christ, you inherited what belongs to the Father, and you are in partnership with God.
A type of partnership you have with God is what you see Jonathan making with David. Jonathan knew that David was anointed of God, and he loved him so much that he agreed with him that all of his life, he would be kind to Jonathan and his descendants. David promised Jonathan that he would never stop being kind to his descendants because of the covenant they made. This covenant was made because Jonathan loved David and saved him when his father Saul was pursuing David.
The Lord loves you and bought you with a very high price, the blood of Jesus. God is now in a covenant with you, and you must acknowledge this every day. What a powerful thing it is to be loved by God and be in a covenant with Him. Take pride knowing that God is faithful and will always be there for you.

 

We later see that the house of Saul became weaker and the house of David stronger after Saul and Jonathan died, but David fulfilled his covenant by showing mercy to Jonathan’s household.

2 Sam 9: 1-8 tells the story of how David remembered his promise to Jonathan and looked for a surviving member of the house of Saul. David rewarded Mephibosheth because of the covenant he made with Jonathan.

 

God loves you so much; he blesses you, protects you, defends you, and supplies your every need.
Just as David was good to Mephibosheth, the Lord wants to be good to you every day and to remember you and your household, but first, you have to surrender to Him.
You may have had some bad breaks, and you sometimes wonder, does God love me? God still loves you, and he wants to do you good. Remind yourself of His covenant. He said He will never leave nor forsake you; He will come through at the appointed time. All you have to do is believe.

 

Do not stop believing in yourself because of the bad experiences you have had. God will never stop believing in you. He is committed to the process.
He is committed to seeing you be purged, purified, and prepared for service. The Lord will use you for His glory, do not forget the place of covenant. Trust that the Lord will keep the promises that He has made to you.

 

The covenant empowered David to kill the lion and the bear. The covenant helped David defeat Goliath. The covenant prompted David to give to Mephibosheth all that belonged to Saul. Be mindful of the covenant that the Lord has towards you and the covenant that you make with others.
Remember the covenant God made with you, God is not a man that He should lie Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Today choose to walk in confidence that you will be victorious because God is with you. Shalom!
