Delight in the Feast

Today’s Reading: Isaiah 25:1-9


Isaiah 25:6 — On this mountain the Lord of hosts will make for all peoples a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wine, of rich food full of marrow, of aged wine well refined.


God promises a rich feast in Jesus’ presence. The Lord of hosts is the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, Jesus Christ. Jesus will return to the earth as a mighty warrior king riding a white horse and leading the armies of heaven (Revelation 19:11-16). When Christ has defeated all His foes and rescued Israel from her enemies, He will host a feast in Jerusalem for all peoples to celebrate His victory.


This will be no ordinary celebration feast because the Jesus will not only be feeding people but also swallowing up death forever and wiping away every tear from people’s eyes. Christ will be comforting people who have experienced loss and turning mourning into dancing and joy (Jeremiah 31:13; Psalm 30:11). 


Jesus has the wonderful ability to turn a bad situation into a time of feasting and fellowship. He prepares a table for us in the presence of our enemies (Psalm 23:5) and He can prepare a table in the wilderness where there is no food or water (Psalm 78:19). The Lord meets His children where we least expect Him and provides what they need in amazing ways.


Were the disciples expecting Jesus to walk on the water in the raging storm to bring peace to their boat? Was Saul expecting Jesus to interrupt his journey to Damascus to save him from his life of religious sin? When Jesus arrived to late for Lazarus’ burial, were Mary and Martha expecting Jesus to call Lazarus out of the tomb to live again?


How many testimonies have there been of people receiving money they desperately needed from unexpected sources? How many people have gone to the doctor and been told that the cancer that had been ravaging their body was now unexpectedly gone? Jesus loves to bless us with surprises of joy and life. “For the Lord takes pleasure in his people; He adorns the humble with salvation” (Psalm 149:4). Delight in Him.
