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 forever.
Let us reflect on those scriptures for a moment.
David knew this place. Esther knew this place. Daniel knew this place, and so did many saints before us. They feared no evil because THE LORD 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.
Psa. 27:1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
Psa. 119:165 Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.
As you abide in Him and He abides in you, every situation you face will unfold in victory. You will stand strong 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!
Joh 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
2Co 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.
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 spiritual 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!
2Ch. 20:15 ….Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s
Pro 16:7 When a man’s ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.
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, Goodness and Mercy 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 gives you another chance. Then you “will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” AMEN! AMEN! AMEN!
Psa. 121:7-8 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
Pro 24:16 For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again:
IN THE NAME OF JESUS, Satan take that!
