TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Come in and have a meal with Me. Sit at My table and take your time. We have eternity to share together as family. You are always welcome to share your daily bread for I Am the Bread of Life.
PULL UP A CHAIR
Down through the years, the table has become a symbolic picture of family. The people we loved the most sat with us at the table. At the table we’ve shared meals, stories, and dreams. We laughed and cried together. We prayed, invited God to become part of our family, and gave Him thanks for all He’s done for our family.
Honestly, we shouldn’t be surprised that throughout the Bible God has a way of showing up at tables. He is, after all, a Father and what’s a family meal without daddy?
In fact, one of the Biblical symbols for the Kingdom is the table. It’s where life is shared and Father God so wants you to share your heart with Him. The table is that place. It’s there, you are filled time and time again. Him being the “Bread of Life” and His word being our “daily bread” means we literally ingest His word into our deepest being and let it nourish us to the bones.
In short, He is life and the table is the place He chooses to feed that life to us. But know this: the enemy has a table too. While his offerings are always tempting and may taste sweet, there is always a bitter ending to dining with the devil.
You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord’s table and of the table of demons. – 1 Corinthians 10:21
Are you getting the picture that tables are places of deep fellowship? Of secrets spoken, dreams unveiled, hope, hurt and healing? That’s what happens at Father God’s table. Pull up a chair. Your Daddy is always waiting for you.
