The Bible says in Psalms 23:1 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. It also says in verse 5, You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
I thought about when I prepare a table for dinner or for a special gathering. I don’t call my guest to the table until I have finished dressing the table and putting the necessary food items on it. Lots of times when we are waiting on God for the manifestation of a request, we become anxious and impatient. We want to sit at the table NOW! God says he is preparing a table before me in the presence of my enemies. Preparation, by its very name involves time to plan and set the right situations in place.
As we wait on God to complete preparations for us, continue to thank him for the wonderful table of abundance we will soon partake of!
“Until He opens that door, praise Him in the hallway!” He will call you to the “table” soon!
