God: knows how to bless us to the utmost…
Psalms 23:5 (KJV) “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over”.
Sometimes we shudder and retreat when we know that we have folks who don’t like us and are after us to do us ill; but if it wasn’t for our enemies, it would not be necessary for the Psalmist to acknowledge that God must needs to prepare a table….in the presence of mine enemies.
You see, those who hate or abhor us, propels us to the forefront of God’s attention so that He acts on our behalf.
Then next time you come face to face with such a one who hates you, take the time to smile and thank them for that table being prepared.
