»You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies…» Psalm 23:5

If you are going through a difficult time right now, read these words: ‘You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life…’ (vv. 5-6 NKJV). Underline the word ‘surely’. It’s God’s guarantee! When does God cause your cup to overflow with blessing? When does He empower you to overcome? When does He demonstrate His goodness and mercy? In the presence of your enemies! The odds and the opposition can’t stop God from blessing you. ‘But I’m really struggling,’ you say. Struggle is proof that you haven’t been conquered, that you refuse to surrender, that victory is still possible, and that you’re growing. As long as you keep walking with God and trusting Him, He will work on your behalf. He will send His Spirit to guide you, His Word to illuminate your mind, and friends to strengthen you in your time of struggle. If you’re teachable, you’re reachable. Keep your heart open, keep listening to God, keep obeying Him and you will see that your problem is just a platform for Him to ‘show himself strong on your behalf’ (2 Chronicles 16:9). You’ll also discover that His strength comes when you’re at your weakest point (2 Corinthians 12:7-9). Finally, you’ll be able to thank God for your enemies, because He’s promised to bless you right there in front of them. People and circumstances don’t decide your future, God does — so look to Him!
