"You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over."

PSALM 23:5

The Lord prepares our table in the presence of our enemies, and there is nothing they can do to stop Him. Nothing.

So, our enemies have to convince us to remove ourselves from the table of blessings. They understand that "without faith, it is impossible to please Him," so they make every effort to influence us to doubt and discouragement.

Is your life experience full of 'darkness' right now? Remember that God walks with us in, 'the valley of the shadow of death' (Psalm 23:4).

Do your circumstances seem completely hopeless? Remember that God prepares a table of abundance for His children in the desert Psalm 105:40-41).

Call to Action

Believe, and be encouraged! Cheerfulness and hope come from faith in God's promises and power. Believe, and you will receive blessings from your table.
