18 Aug A table is being prepared for you. Get Ready!
Psalm 23:5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies: you anoint my head with oil;
my cup runs over.
You see what the word of God said, he is preparing a table for you. You have people that don’t want to see you well, don’t want to see you prosper. Your enemies can be your family, co-worker, boss,
even those that you call friends. But no matter what they try to do to you, stay blameless, stay faithful no matter what. God will soon promote you and increase you in front of your enemies. Your cup will run over.
There is a story in the bible about Mordecai Esther’s cousin. He had an enemy named Haman.
Haman wanted not only to kill Mordecai but the whole Jewish people during those time. He had set a
plot to have Mordecai hanged.
Esther 6: 9. And let this apparel and horse be delivered to the hand of
one of the king’s most noble princes, that they may array the man with whom the king delights to honor
and bring him on horseback through the street of the city, and proclaim before him, thus shall it be done
to the man whom the king delights to honor.
10. Then the king said to Haman, make haste, and take the apparel and the horse, as you have said, and
do even so to Mordecai the Jew, that sits at the king’s gate: let nothing fail of all that you have spoken.
11. Then took Haman the apparel and the horse, and arrayed Mordecai, and brought him on horseback
through the street of the city, and proclaimed before him, thus shall it be done to the man whom the
king delights to honor. 12. And Mordecai came again to the king’s gate. But Haman hurried to his house
mourning, and having his head covered.
Esther 7:9. And Harbonah, one of the chamberlains, said before the king, behold also, the gallows fifty
cubits high, which Haman had made for Mordecai, who spoken good for the king, stands in the house of
Haman. Then the king said, Hang him thereon.10. So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had
prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king’s wrath pacified.
Esther 9:3. And all the rulers of the provinces, and the lieutenants, and the deputies, and officers of the
king, helped the Jews, because the fear of Mordecai fell on them. 4. For Mordecai was great in the king’s
house, and his fame went out throughout all the provinces: for this man Mordecai waxed greater and greater.
Just like Haman was plotting for Mordecai’s demise, you have enemies trying to plot your downfall but like Mordecai, God will handle the enemies that hate you for no reason. The tables will turn on your enemies. Get ready to be promoted, get ready for wonderful surprises, get ready for increase. A table is being prepared for you. Hold on! You will soon be rejoicing instead of crying. Be encouraged, you will soon be recognized for your hard work, your dedication, and your faithfulness.
Let me be the first to say congratulations to you!
