IN DEBT to the Believer and the Unbeliever
"Both to Greeks and to barbarians
(to the cultured and the uncultured), both to the wise and to the foolish,
I have an obligation to discharge and a duty to perform and a debt to pay."
Romans 1:14 (Amp

Feasting at the Table of Blessing

 "One thing I have desired, that will I seek,
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days
of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord,
and to inquire in His temple."
Psalm 27:4

As I spend time in God's presence and dwell in His house, these are some of the exciting truths I have discovered and have been scooping up onto my plate to feast upon at the banqueting table in the celebration hall of the Father's house. Our God has prepared a table before us in the presence of our enemies and invites us to come and dine, feast, and celebrate with Him. (Ps 23:5) There is SO MUCH revelation at this table as we feast upon His blessings.

#1  In my house I have discovered there is NO LACK, because I am a child of God living and dwelling in HIS HOUSE. Wealth and riches are in my house, because I am now living in HIS house. He has called me, and I have come through the blood of Jesus, washed from my sins and restored into right relationship with my Father, and learning to be a good manager and steward of His blessings and resources. His house is the place (the home of the Spirit) that I live in and draw upon His anointing and bring His presence and riches into my home. I live and dwell there now, and all that is His is mine to partake of, and everything that I have, I have given to Him. When I give it to Him He places His hand of blessing upon it so that it will now glorify Him. The Father wants everything in my life to glorify Him, and as I discover new places and things in my life to hand over to Him, He blesses them and releases His anointing upon them to restore and turn them around for His glory. Our Father is such a good and faithful God and a God of restoration. He knows just how to fix and restore and work all things together for our good when we turn our heart fully towards Him. Things that we can't fix and that we have messed up, He takes and does miraculous things to through His power and grace. I am amazed.....every time.
(Jer 30:17; Joel 2:25-26; Ps 51:12; Acts 3:19-21)

#2  Another truth that I have been feasting on is that we ARE HEALED......already! We just have to receive it and go get it with our faith.  Jesus paid the price for our healing with His blood. He took our sickness and disease to the cross and purchased our healing 2000 years ago.  (Is 53:5, 1 Pet 2:24) The Father was trying to give me a simple analogy of this as I feasted on this truth. He said, "It's kinda like this. What if you went online and purchased something for someone, maybe like a garment, and it was delivered to that particular store that you ordered it from. Now, know it has been purchased for them already, and it's now theirs, but they've got to pick it up. They have to claim it and receive it. It's already paid for, already registered in their name and is officially theirs, but they have got to make the effort to go get it, to take possession of it." And then He said, "But understand that sometimes they are too weak to go get it themselves, so you may have to go receive and pick it up for them and deliver it to them, maybe even help them put it on and see how good it looks on them. Sometimes people just need someone that cares enough to make the sacrifice and effort to go get what's been purchased for them already and help them receive it fully." He was trying to show me our place as a friend (intercessor) and "delivery boy" for their gift that's been purchased for them and officially belongs to them, and how to take what was theirs and just deliver and release it to them.

O this food is SO GOOD! Feasting on God's truths at His table of blessings is amazing! Things that our circumstances and that we have let others (non-believers or misled believers) tell us have built up mindsets and strongholds in our mind, but our Father God wants to tear those old mindsets and strongholds down with the truths of His kingdom that belongs to us as His children. He wants us to know, believe, and live in these truths as we walk out each day and face these circumstances and situations everyday. Our daily feasting at His table with His Word strengthens us, empowers us, and renews our mind to have the true mind of Christ and walk in the power and victory that is ours through our lives hidden in Christ.
So I invite you today to come and feast at the table of blessing and abundance that He has prepared before you, and take your position at His side. He says you will rule and reign with Him as you partake of this table that He has prepared before you even in the presence of your enemies, even in the stormy situation that you are walking through. Come and Feast!!

"You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies."
Ps 23:5
