Provision in an unlikely place Psalm 23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. For the Lord to prepare a table for us is something all would like. Our loving heavenly Father would no doubt provide the very best for His children. But where He prepares it, to the human mind is somewhat peculiar. We prefer to do our work, labor, battle, or whatever we are employed in and then retire to a safe secluded place to recuperate. "But God" whose ways are far above our ways, will cause His children to sit in the presence of their enemies and enjoy His abundant provision. What a privilege to be a child of the King. We do not have to worry about avenging ourselves because God will take care of all of our enemies, and part of their reward for iniquity they have to watch as the ones they wanted to destroy sit at the table of the King enjoying His great blessings and abundant supply. Be encouraged and stay faithful, dinner is being prepared.
