Eat, Drink and Be Merry

“How precious is your steadfast love, O God! The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your delights. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light.” Psalms‬ ‭36:7-9‬ ESV

Read this and just loved the picture of feasts and fountains.

When walking with God we will become aware that everything we need for life is available in Him. Yet we often live life as if we have forgotten this simple truth.

His steadfast love provides a safe place for us, a place of protection. But more than that, we can benefit from all that is ours. 

We can feast on all that God provides.

We can drink from the river of life. 

We can stand under the fountain that brings us life.

It’s so simple – eat, drink and be merry. 

These verses reminded me today that all I need really is found in God, He is more than enough.

The challenge for me is remembering this and choosing at the start of each day to position myself well, within the safety of His precious love, as close to Him as possible.
