5You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
I don’t usually like waiting, but sometimes, there’s nothing that you can do about it. When you go out to a restaurant and it is around dinner time on the weekend, there could be a lot of people waiting for a table. There were other times when I am able to make a reservation and just walk in, passing all of those who need to wait.
The Bible says that heaven will be like a banquet. God has prepared a table before us. It has been setup and reserved for us. We just don’t know when it is our time to go to this table. Our life is full of ups and downs, but we can be comforted to know that there is space for us and that God cares enough to prepare this table for us. It gives us hope that there will be space for us.
