Banquets are filled with food,

fun, fellowship and celebration. God

provides a unique banquet. His banquet

is filled with promises from His Word.

These promises are cherished,

magnificent and precious for believers.

His table comes with

reconciliation to God through Christ.

Daily, he forgives us for our sins.

His presence is with us all the time.

He is our traveling companion.

We are empowered through the work

of the Holy Spirit. He is our helper.

God serves up strength for our journey.

According to Philippians 4:13, we can

face anything in His strength. If we

walk uprightly, God will not withhold

any good thing from us.

God bears our burdens daily. His

table offers an abundance of comfort

when we are in trouble. I Corinthians

10:13 reminds us that He puts

limitations on our trials. God's Word

is filled with wisdom, rest and peace.

His banquet serves us well in old

age. In Psalm 92:12-15, we are told

that he supplies the strenth and energy

we need in our last days. In His Word,

we are reminded that nothing can ever

seperate us from Him. John 10:27-30

says God provides us with eternal

security. Finally, His Word tells us

of our final destination--heaven. His

table is full of riches from His Word.

All we have to do is taste and see that

the Lord is good.

You did a lovely job of summing up the promises Christ has made to us. What beautiful and comforting words these are.

My only red ink would be to look and see how many times you used the word banquet. Sometimes I'll challenge people to try and write on topic without using topic words. It's not easy to do but I believe you have the talent to do just that.

The last line really grabbed at my heart. It really sums up your message and God's promise.

Your writing touched my heart also. So many comforting promises from God's Word. My only "red ink" (if you can call it that) is that this reads like a beautiful piece of prose that was broken into lines to make it poetry. That doesn't take away from your ability to convey your thoughts into words, however. I enjoyed this tremendously.
