The Lord sets the table for us and puts on the table exactly what we are to eat and the right amount for our personal time and season, or corporate season.
Where is your table?
Where are you eating, from what table? And how much are you eating? Is it God's choice for you? God forbid that we should try to eat from the devils table and God's table both. But even if we are not eating from satan's table at all we can be deceived by the mass amount of food put out in the "so called table of the lord", Christian material. We go after all the food on the shelves and in the refrigerators that are available that looks good and it is fast revelation, but it does not feed our spirits what the Lord prepared for us at the time. It feeds our mind and makes us junkie's on someone else's anointing and revelation that never really becomes ours, but it does pacify our minds and makes us think we are feeding ourselves properly. For the most part we do not pick the right amount or the right diet for our spiritual wellness. We want it sweet and fast.
Where is your table?
Why do we not just desire His table set for us? And surrender to His will only for us. First he sets a table in the quiet of your intimate time with His person and scripture. There he will give you His first course. It takes time and discipline at first but when you taste of its benefits and blessings and you allow a habit and stronghold of God to take over you can't live with out it. It is your personal table with Him. Then he may set your table in the wilderness where you dig deep for the food and water but it is priceless when you find it. Or He may set your food in a situational circumstances that drives you to almost exhaustion or death, but then the food He gives is so special and wonderfully life changing. Secondly, If you surrender, He will appoint your table and set you in the God destined places with people where the anointing will teach you through another what is His divine provision, purpose, and time for you. His table set for you is when you are faithful to get in the right place at the right time; hearing what He has provided for you, what He has appointed for you for the now. He may point a certain book out to you but if He does not, then leave them alone and stay in THE BOOK. He may point out a certain tape, or certain conference or whatever, but if God does not point it out then leave it alone. We have an overload, excessive, surfeiting culture and church. It is a sign of the end of the age. There is an overload of stuff available, too much, but it is not all for you and not for you at this time. If we will only stop the incessant hunger for just information, If we will only stop our cultured influenced desire for the excessive overeating.(spiritually) If we will only wake up and just rest and follow Him for what we are to eat and drink of spiritually, then we will grow much quicker and easier into a full healthy and whole spirit/soul measure of Christ. Our lives will be richer and less cluttered and less confusing. What are you allowing to come through the portals of your body, through reading stuff, watching stuff, hearing stuff, company you keep, who you talk with regularly also becomes, activities, and etc. Are all influencing what you spirit is able to discern, able to receive, able to respond to, able to hunger after, and able to love. The portals of your body are first entry, the portals of your soul are the second entry to your spirit……………..STOP! LOOK! And LISTEN……….What do you allow your mind to focus on, to feed on, what do you allow to touch your emotions, to experience, what do you go after that you think you have to have to feel good about you. Stop! Let God show you! Let Him choose your food, and your table, and your influences. Let the portals of you whole body soul and spirit be His, and be wholly sanctified for His use only. God alone knows what your spirit needs now. The love and power of the Kingdom of God will only come as you eat of Him and drink of Him from the table of the Lord set for you.
