Your Invitation to Dine

"As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me. This is the bread which came down from heaven...he who eats this bread will live forever.”   John 6:57-58

In its beautiful simplicity, the significance of the table moves my heart in awe of God's goodness.  He wants to meet with us daily and fill us with His truth.

The table represents communion with God, fellowship with Him, dwelling with Him and feeding on the Bread of Life. 

God invites us to come and dine with Him.  He invites us to come receive our portion daily.

Sometimes I approach the table in hushed reverence completely aware of my wretchedness and His holiness.  Other times, I limp my way there knowing my brokenness needs to be made whole by His perfect love. And still at times I dance my way to the table rejoicing in His faithfulness, mercy and provision. 

Whatever the condition of my heart, by His grace, I go.  Without pretension, I go.  I go because He is faithful to meet us in His Word and in prayer.

"Receive the Bible as it is in truth, the Word of God, which works mightily in those who believe.  Hold fellowship with God through the Word.  Take time to speak with Him about it, to give an answer to Him concerning it. Then you will understand what the Lord Jesus says: 'The words which I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.' (John 6:63)"
~ Andrew Murray

Let's dine with Him in His Word.  His gives us the richest of fare.  "Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and your soul will delight in the richest of fare."  (Isaiah 55:2)

Journal

Saying grace ~ Bringing my heart to God in prayer.

My Portion ~ Where Has God met me in His Word today?

Nourishment ~ How does God want to mold and change my heart?

Second Helpings ~ Where does God want me to be a doer of the Word and take action?

Time for Dessert ~ What can I share with others from what God showed me today?

"Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!"
Psalm 34:8

Oh, this is absolutely beautiful...just like you. You will feed many women from this table. I pray now for the Lord to bless richly the work of your hands and your heart, sweet friend. And I know He will because you make yourself available to hear His voice and you humbly pray for His leading.

Love,

Wendy
