Our Father God has prepared a lavish banquet. His tables are piled high with the very best he has to offer –
* purpose for our lives.
* blessing for our families and friends.
* provisions for all of our needs.
Everything is ready. We just need to go to the banquet and accept all of God’s blessings.
Many of us have accepted God’s invitation, have felt his grace, his acceptance and his love.
But sometimes we have problems staying at the banquet – we wander outside to the patio and start to worry and fret, instead of sitting at his table filled with trust that he’s got this.
We wander upstairs to plan and plot and try to control our world instead of relaxing in God’s presence, knowing he’s in charge.
Or we concentrate on the dessert table when we really need to be diving into the meat God has for us in his Word.
We may get distracted by wanting to know all of the ingredients of every dish when God’s desire is that we “Be still …… and know I am God.”
We might leave the party early because we are so busy, our calendars are over-flowing. We only penciled in one hour for God. So we miss the fun, we miss the deep relationship we could have had with God if we took the time. If we made Him our priority.
It’s possible to go to the banquet and accept salvation but miss most of the blessings God has for us here on earth.
Dear Father, Please help us to stay at the banquet, bowed and blessed at your feet. Today. And everyday.
