Psalms 23: Preparation-3
Psalms 23:5 “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.”
Friend, wait for your prepared table. Even though it tarries, kindly wait. God’s timing is always superb. Preparation takes time!
Job 14:14 “If a man die, shall he live [again]? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.”
Job said he is prepared to wait for his prepared table even if it will take his whole lifetime. Indeed he waited for long but his table eventually came and it was glorious.
Abraham waited for twenty five years, Isaac waited, Moses waited forty years after a grave impatience. Jesus waited thirty years, friend you must learn to wait.
The word prepare as used in our focal scripture for the day is the Hebrew word “ârak” which means to arrange, set or put or lay in order, handle and direct amongst others. Those are powerful words that gave me a clearer understanding of preparation.
Friend, when God is preparing your table, He is simply making arrangements for you. When you place an order for a precious item, you know from the moment you place the order that time will be involved, the question is; Why not apply the same technique in waiting on God?
Another thing our shepherd does with preparation is to put order back into our lives. Our shepherd knows that several things are out of order in the life of his sheep which must be fixed. Friend, let him fix and put back order into your career, health, finances, family and other scattered areas. Allow him work on every aspect of your life.
Handle is another interpretation for the word prepare, I love this one. David was simply saying; I have no worry about the enemies against me simply because my shepherd will handle them! What an affirmation.
