Dear friend in Christ;
Thanksgiving Day is a special time of reflection on all the blessings we enjoy. Many will come together with family and friends to enjoy food, fellowship, and football. Most people will gather around an abundantly supplied table and fill their plates with all the turkey, dressing, mashed potato’s, sweet potatoes and cranberry sauce that their stomachs can contain! Oh; and don’t forget the pumpkin pie, pecan pie and whipped cream-
However, as delicious as a Thanksgiving table is, even more magnificent is the table God has prepared for you! Psalm 23:5 says that God prepares a table for us in the presence of our enemies. He has a chair at the table with your name on it.
When I was growing up my mother would always say, "If you don't get enough to eat, it's your fault." In other words, the food is here for you to eat. If you don't eat enough, it's on you!
The same rules apply at God's table. Jesus began to prepare the table on the cross when He said, "It is finished." Then through His burial and resurrection, He set the table with everything you need. It contains salvation, forgiveness, restoration, protection, healing, deliverance, prosperity, and many other blessings. If you don't get enough, there's no one to blame but yourself.
Jesus came so you would have life and have it more abundantly (John 10:10). Abundantly means there's plenty. God never runs out of His supply.
At an all-you-can-eat buffet, when a pan gets low on food, they lift it out and put in a full one. There is plenty to go around, and no one has to go home hungry. It's similar to God's table. It has plenty of everything you need.
So pull out your chair, sit down, pick up your plate, and fill it with whatever you need. Take a big heaping of healing. Take a drink of the Living Water. For dessert, scoop out a big helping of joy. Then rejoice as the devil looks on-because he can't do anything about it!
God's table is ready for you. You don't have to wait until everything in your life is perfect before you can enjoy it.
You can receive from God despite your circumstances. Sit down at the table and get what you need today. And don't worry about stocking up for the future because you can always go back for more!
So, may you sit at the Lords table and have a Happy Thanksgiving-
Love in His Grace,
Pastor Joe & Jacquelyn Sabolick
See You Sunday at 10AM
