I have set before you a banquet of goodness to feast upon. As you sit with me, focus on my goodness towards you. Deliberately choose to think about my love for you, my favour resting upon you, and my care and protection of you. Posture your heart in thankfulness. In doing so, know that you are diminishing the enemy’s hold over you.
When you choose to prioritise time in my presence – lingering at the table of bounty with me – it diminishes the magnitude of your enemies in relation to me. The enemy of your soul would like to make himself big in your eyes. He would like to draw your gaze away from me and make himself the centre of your attention. Know that where you choose to let your mind dwell will fill your thoughts, affect your emotions, and occupy space in your life.
Come dine with me and allow your gaze to rest on me as my eyes hold yours. I am always waiting for you. I am always ready to sit with you. I am always available. I am never late. I am never a disappointment. Let me fill your mind, emotions, and heart with my goodness and love.
Activation: Allow Holy Spirit to show you where you have allowed the enemy, your problems, or circumstances to eclipse the majesty, might, and glory of God. Allow him to put things into a godly order by refocusing your gaze on him. Spend time meditating on the characteristics of God that he brings to mind.
You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honour me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings.Psalm 23:5 (NLT)
He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.Song of Solomon 2:4 (ESV)
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.1 John 4:4 (NIVUK)
