Words of Comfort: Podded pea.


Have you ever made the mistake of eating a meal when you are stressed? When the human nerves are as tight as piano wire it's not good to even eat a podded pea. If you do, your food will sit in your stomach like an indigestible rock for ages. 

The Bible teaches that Christians live in the midst of a world that is an enemy of God, and that He has prepared a table for us in their contentious presence.  So we live among their warring against God and digest the Bread of Life, with  a peace that passes all understanding. Nothing can take that peace from us. We are no deterred, discouraged, distresses, distracted or deceived, because it is God Himself Who prepared the table: "You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies" (Psalm 23:5).
