Feast in the Fight

You Set A Table Before Me

You become my delicious feast even when my enemies dare to fight. You anoint me with the fragrance of your Holy Spirit; you give me all I can drink of you until my heart overflows. Psalm 23:5 TPT

I love the symbolism in this verse. Nothing like sitting down to a feast at the table of the Lord when there’s warfare all around you. I don’t know about you, but that right there is right where I’ve been.

Turmoil and strife on every side. Drama from this person, and that person. A phone call. A bad report from the doctor. Death knocking loudly. An empty bank account with a pile of unpaid bills.

Then you take a break, open your bible and read the verse above and instantly you think of another.

Drink deeply of the pleasures of this God. Experience for yourself the joyous mercies he gives to all who turn to hide themselves in him. Psalm 34:8 TPT

Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him! Psalm 34:8 NKJV

And quickly you smile because you’re partaking of the food He’s provided and your heart is stilled. Your trust is re-established and your hope renewed. Suddenly a sweet fragrance fills the room as the Holy Spirit anoints you and the worship flows from your heart.

Like a bubbling brook, your joy finds it’s way to my mouth and laughter heals my body and strengthens my mind. I will remain here with You until everything is touched by Your presence. Debt must bow. Sickness must bow. Stress must bow. Drama must bow. Death has been defeated and fear has lost it’s grip.

Until Tomorrow,

  1. And to think, I was in a seemingly unshakebale place last night. No matter how much I tried to gird my mind and thoughts with the word of God, I could not shake what I was feeling! I knew God was still large and in charge, I knew that as He’s been with me before, He was with me even then, but I COULD NOT SHAKE what I was feeling. All of a sudden I heard the voice of the Lord remind me of this….”weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning….

    The Lord tucked me in with those words, and boy did I sleep. I now see that I slept with the hope and assurance of His faithfulness even during the fight..

    What I realize now, not last night, but now, in my morning, is that there will be times when I will have to drift away into sleep, even when burdened, even when bothered, even when I don’t see a way. I believe I was looking for resolve and a certain answer last night, but this morning the Lord said, sometimes you just need to use whatever bothers you as a pillow as best as you can, looking forward to a divine manifestation of His word, in the morning….

    Whew! Talk about a struggle, last night was a booger bear, but along came a refreshing wind from the Lord this morning. I was awakened to the pitter pat of rain drops, brand new mercies, and even my joy, which He graciously gives, as the Lord walked me through Hebrews 12..

    Thanks for sharing His words…
