Lent Day 23-God’s Table

For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plan to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11) Because the world is so fractured and full of pain, people tend to think dark thoughts and feel hopeless about the future. Unless you stay alert, you are vulnerable to such thoughts and feelings too. This makes you easy prey for your adversary, the devil, who prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Jesus gave his body on the cross to provide eternal  nourishment for you, but the evil one wants to devour you! The contrast is crystal-clear, and the stakes are immeasurably high.

Mankind has a voracious appetite for finding out what the future will bring. Astrologers and fortune-tellers capitalize on this lust to peer into secret things, things that belong to the Lord. However, to feast on Him you must live in the present moment. This is where you can encounter the Lord and enjoy His presence. As you come to the table of His delight, be sure to bring your fork of trust and your spoon of thankfulness. Take plenty of time enjoying Jesus, and your soul will delight in the riches of fare.

Grace and Peace to You My Friends
