This psalm wasn’t a cute thought to David. He had tapped into the truth that even when enemies were lurking around every corner, God Himself could be found preparing a table. David felt served, cared for, and covered even when the enemy was upon him.
This is an incredible picture of God. He delights in serving us not just when things are calm but also when trials are upon us. In the moments we want to explode into frantic activity to protect ourselves from our enemies, God says, “Have a seat, child. Look, I have prepared a table for you, and I will serve you. Even though you are in a trial, your cup will overflow.”
Father, thank you that you fight my enemies and serve me at the same time.
Have you experienced a time that you felt served by God in the middle of a trial?
