Dining at the King's Table

And from that time on, Mehibosheth ate regularly with David, as though he were one of his own sons. (2 Samuel 9:11b NLT

   Believers in Jesus Christ have been invited to dine at the King's table.  David said in Psalm 23, "You prepare a feast for me in the presence of enemies.  You welcome me as a guest, anointing my head with oil" (Psalm 23:5 NLT).  

   Sometimes God piles our plate with the good things of life and we have to loosen our belts.  At other time we are faced with broccoli and spinach.  Times of adversity are difficult to swallow.  When this happens we need to go to the garden and talk to God like his son Jesus did. Jesus was handed a cup of suffering and it was so bitter that he wanted to hand it back, but in complete submission he said, "If it is possible take this cup from me; yet not as I will, but as you will."  (Matthew 26:39)

   Have you ever been maligned and falsely accused?  Of course you have.  All of us have suffered at the hands of the accuser.  When this happens, remember you are seated at the King's table.  Nothing can separate you from the love of God, your King.
