The spirit of the Lord is decreeing ‘Encounters around the dining table!’, over you and yours during this holiday season. He continues ‘I love when families gather and eat together. I love the sounds of laughter between husband and wife, parent and child. I bless friends who sit and share life-stories with one another. I pour forth my glory into homes where distant and near relatives and friends come together and spend time belonging.’
As you gather with family over this holiday time to celebrate Jesus and His coming to earth, remember that His first days were marked by unity and celebration in a stable and glory was there. There are encounters both great and simple to be had as you delight in those God has surrounded you with.
How truly wonderful and delightful to see brothers and sisters living together in sweet unity! It’s as precious as the sacred scented oil flowing from the head of the high priest Aaron, dripping down upon his beard and running all the way down to the hem of his priestly robes. This heavenly harmony can be compared to the dew dripping down from the skies upon Mount Hermon, refreshing the mountain slopes of Israel. For from this realm of sweet harmony God will release his eternal blessing, the promise of life forever!
