In The Presence Of My Enemies

by Hazel Straub

It does not matter how strong and adversarial the enemy appears. Our covenant keeping God is much stronger. He prepares a lavish covenant banquet meal, for us with every provision we need, along with delightful favorite dishes just because he loves us.

What is truly amazing, he prepares and serves this savory tasty feast, while our enemies look but do not get to partake. Our God, Yahweh, exists in our present and abundantly blesses us with a special celebration meal because he loves and delights in us. He pours the wine until it overflows, because he wants us, joyful. Healing oil pours over our head.  Yahweh captures our attention and we forget the enemies that look with harmless envy, in our presence. Yahweh’s goodness and mercy triumphs over our enemies!

Enjoy the banquet and rejoice in Yahweh!

You spread out a table before me,
provisions in the midst of attack from my enemies;
You care for all my needs, anointing my head with soothing, fragrant oil,
filling my cup again and again with Your grace.
Certainly Your faithful protection and loving provision will pursue me
where I go, always, everywhere.
I will always be with the Eternal,
in Your house forever. (Psalm 23:5-6 VOICE)

  1. I found the timing of your post to be interesting as we approach Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) 🙂 The anticipation of turkey, family favorite sides, and all that food instills joy (and for those who cook: work!) But God gives us a banquet each day that we can’t earn, it is given out of grace!

    • Thank you Yahweh for grace and your wonderful banquet table. Blessings to you Debbie! May God’s banqueting table supersede the physical holiday celebration of Thanksgiving.
