Many people read and are blessed by my DIG on a daily basis, but I am delighted to say that the DIG today was written by one of you, so thank you for your input Zan. I pray that you are all blessed and encouraged today with my “guest DIG”……..
Psalm 23 is such a good picture of what Jesus is and what he has done for us.
Verse 5 especially speaks of His provision when it says He has prepared a table before us in the presence of our enemies.
Why do we need a table of food set before us and in front of our enemies?
Well, I believe that this table is a type and shadow of the cross and the things He has placed on the table is a picture of all that Jesus has bought for us at the cross.
And I believe that “in the presence of my enemies” means all the wiles of the enemy that he throws at us and tempts us with to steal, kill and destroy us.
Notice that this verse comes after ‘though I walk through the shadow of death’ which is an awful time for us to endure but Jesus had made provision for us to overcome our trials by laying out before us His gifts and promises to help us.
The Holy Spirit gives out His gifts to us as we require them whether it is healing , finances, prosperity, words of knowledge, prophecy etc. and His promises are all written in His word.
It is up to us to put our faith into action and believe that we have the power in us to overcome all our inadequacies because of what He has done for us.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that your Kingdom has come and is working in us and through us”.
Psalm 23 v 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over
