Turning Over Tables
This morning during a powerful time of worship I saw a picture of Jesus coming in and turning over tables in our lives. I wondered what this meant and then the Lord spoke these words,
“I am going to every place in My people’s lives where the enemy has been making exchanges with them and giving them something false rather than the pure things that I have for them and I am turning those tables over and now a Holy and Pure exchange will happen for many. I am now bringing them to the Table of the Lord.”
We were speaking this morning and I was able to share about this vision that I saw and then I shared how God has been turning over the tables in my life of anything that is not holy. I shared how the Lord has been dealing deeply with roots of doubt in my life and the security that I still return to that are rooted in mammon (money) more than Him alone. God has been breaking off every last vestige of false security. As I finished sharing this, the pastor of the church, who had been interviewing us around a table (in front of the congregation) asked the people if they would come and set a financial offering for us on the table that was in front of us.
When it was done a lady came up to me and said, “Did you see how when you shared about God overturning the table of false securities in your life that immediately He made the table before you one of blessing, honor and provision?”
I didn’t even realize the prophetic act that was taking place right in front of me. God was showing everyone that as He turns the tables that the enemy set up, it makes room for us to see the table that He has set before us. It is a banqueting table with all that we need rather than a table of buying, selling and exchanging the pure offering for something impure. We are called to be a house of prayer, all robbery from His glory and honor must cease.
Wow, let Jesus overturn every table that is sitting before you and keeping you from the true table of the Lord that He is inviting you to. He is preparing a people for Himself that walk in a pure pursuit for His presence and that will hunger for His righteousness alone. They will eat from the table of the Lord.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
