He Is Here
1 The king shall have joy in Your strength, O LORD;
And in Your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!
2 You have given him his heart’s desire,
And have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah
3 For You meet him with the blessings of goodness;
You set a crown of pure gold upon his head.
4 He asked life from You, and You gave it to him—
Length of days forever and ever.
5 His glory is great in Your salvation;
Honor and majesty You have placed upon him.
6 For You have made him most blessed forever;
You have made him exceedingly glad with Your presence.
The presence of Jesus at His table is a precious truth to His people. It was in the eating of food that the disciples in the upper room on Easter evening knew and were glad that Jesus was really with them. It was in the blessing, breaking and giving of the bread that the Emmaus Road disciples recognized Him. The question for us is whether we will realize He is here. It’s possible to breeze through and just not think much about it. Do you believe He is alive? Do you realize that means life for you? Is He your Lord and your God? If so, then Jesus gives you a seat here at His table. Enjoy communion and fellowship with Him.
