Can you imagine a world renown chef taking the time to prepare sumptuous meals for his guests, setting the meal on the table and not putting any serving spoons for the guests to dish the meals unto their plate?
That would be disastrous for the hungry guests to stand by the buffet table looking longingly at the yummy food and not being able to partake of it.
Matthew chapter 25 talks about The Father separating the sheep from the goat. This is a metaphor describing people who belong to The Lord, who served him and lived for him while in the earth compared with those who were rebellious.
Matthew 25: 34 Then shall the King say unto them on His right hand, ‘Come, ye blessed of My Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
Like a chef, God has prepared a super abundant inheritance for us from the foundation of the world and has set it on a table before us. I call this God’s Grace Buffet Table. This table has righteousness, deliverances from evil, favor, spiritual healing, emotional healing, physical healing and all of God’s goodness already prepared and spread out for the sheep; those that belong to God.
Psalm 23: 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Now, a buffet table requires all that come to the table to dish the food themselves. We usually call it; serve yourself. The guest uses the serving spoons to serve the food unto their plate. As long as there are serving spoons on the table guests can serve the food for themselves at any time.
Grace is the blessing and provision of God spread out before us on the table while Faith is the serving spoon we use to move the food from the serving table unto our plate so we can enjoy our blessing meal.
God has provided the blessing food; however, it is our responsibility to use our faith to serve ourselves the healing, deliverance, wholeness, favor at any time.
Faith is the serving spoon for Grace.
God’s part is already done from the foundation of the world. Our part is using the serving spoon of faith to take possession of the inheritance already provided for us.
So how do we get faith? How do we get the serving spoon?
Faith comes by hearing the word of God about the provisions set on the Grace Buffet Table and how Jesus defeated the devil and broke down the wall of partition hindering us from being able to access the buffet table.
When we believe this, we come with confidence and boldness using our faith serving spoon to dish our inheritance and partake of God’s goodness to us.
Have you received Jesus as your Lord?
Are you enjoying the blessing of salvation?
Today is a good day to do so. Say this prayer; Lord Jesus Thank you for the punishment you took on my behalf on calvary, because of what you did I can now partake of the blessing of salvation, I now receive you as my Lord and Savior. Come into my heart today, forgive me of my sins, live within my heart be my God and My Lord. I choose to live for you from now on.
