Psa 23:4-6 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
Let us reflect on those scriptures for a moment.
Some of us are going through hard times right now, and we feel as though we are walking this journey all alone. I want you to listen to what King David said when he was going through some very hard times, “I will fear no evil, for Thou are with me.” He would fear no evil. Do you know there is a place in the Lord where you simply fear no evil? No circumstances can shake you. Your faith does not waver. Everything is “Yes, Lord.” David knew this place. Esther knew this place, Daniel knew this place, and so did many saints before us. They feared no evil because THOU WAS WITH THEM. The Lord was with them every step of the way. Jesus is offering this same place to you right now. This place; this special place is with the Lord. It is in loving the Lord and abiding in His word.
119:165 Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.
Every situation you face will unfold in victory, because you love the Lord, and you know beyond the shadow of a doubt that Jesus is with you. Your Father has already conquered everything you will ever face. There is nothing the enemy can think of that God hasn’t ALREADY given you the victory! PRAISE THE LORD!
David felt so good about what God was doing for him, he went on to say, “He prepares a table for me” And not just any table, but a table “in the presence of his enemies.” Look at God showing out! The same table the Lord prepared for King David, He will prepare for you. The Lord “will prepare a table for you in the presence of your enemies.” Your battle will become a feast in the face of your enemies. He will prepare for you a meal that will nourish you, and lift your spirit life to a level no demon can touch. Think about this, in the midst of the battle you are facing this very day our Lord is saying, “Sit, rest, and eat with Me“. This battle is not yours; it is Mine. I got this.” Oh, thank you Jesus!
You don’t even have to worry about anyone stabbing you in the back while you are eating with the Lord, because “His Goodness and Mercy are following you.” (Watch out, I feel a sermon coming) Imagine God’s Mercy and Goodness following you everywhere you go. In other words, they have your back. If you start slipping you do not have to say, “I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up.” Goodness catches you before you fall. Mercy steps in to set you back on your feet, and give you another chance. Then guess what, you “will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” AMEN! AMEN! AMEN!
IN THE NAME OF JESUS, satan take that!
BECAUSE JESUS SAID IT, I KNOW IT IS TRUE: Therefore, I shall confess with my mouth and believe in my heart that my needs are met according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus. I am blessed. I am rich because Jesus Christ became poor for me. I am blessed by His great and mighty promises. He has opened the window of His storehouse and poured out blessings I cannot contain. I can be a blessing to others, because my cup overflows with His promises. Whatever I need, God will provide. He is the solution to every problem in my life. It is His good pleasure to give me the kingdom. I will only believe! I will not be afraid, I will believe!
