Psalm 23:5 – You prepare a table before me…
Such an amazing statement. It’s actually an invitation, don’t you think? If the LORD is preparing a table and setting it before us, then surely He expects us to come… and sit… and dine… with Him.
Imagine yourself in His company enjoying a lavish meal He prepared just for you! The quiet stillness of His Presence surrounding you as you interact with The Savior comforts and excites at the same time. Listening as He shares His plans for you, the realization of His love (John 3:16) overwhelms your very soul knowing He created you for this moment (Esther 4:14). Your days are established (Job 14:5). Your time is in His Hands (Psalm 31:15). His plan for you is perfect and full of hope (Jeremiah 29:11).
So come to the table and enjoy the experience of a lifetime in His Presence. If you contemplate skipping the invitation, listen as He whispers, “Why do you settle for crumbs when you have a seat at My Table?”
Let’s pray: Gracious Heavenly Father, I come to Your table today with expectancy fully receiving Your goodness and love as You surround and guide me on the path You have prepared for me. I stand on Your Word that I shall lack nothing to fulfill Your plan for my life. Thank You for the beautiful promise that I will dwell with You forever. In the precious Name of Jesus I pray and believe. Amen.

Remaining open to His still, small voice reveals much as evidenced by the statement given to her by Holy
Spirit which she shares within her devotion this month: “Why do you settle
for crumbs when you have a seat at My table?”
