November 24

[thanksgiving]  Around the Father’s Table

Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the lamb!

Revelation 19:9, niv

For the past several years, my husband and I, along with our family, have celebrated Thanksgiving at my father’s house. . . . The meal is always abundant and delicious—turkey with dressing and gravy, ham, green beans,  . . . my mouth waters just thinking about it! But the highlight of Thanksgiving is not the food, or the televised football games, or the fun. The highlight is always the fellowship around the dining room table. As we sip our coffee and gorge on one last piece of pie, my father presides at the head of the table as each person shares what he or she is most thankful for. . . .

One day, in My Father’s House, the table will be set and supper will be ready. One day you and I and all of the Father’s children will be seated around that table. One day our Father will preside as He gathers us to Himself, listening intently and lovingly as we share our love for each other and our love for Him. One day My Father’s House will be filled with His family, and it won’t get any better than that!

Heaven

Edited following Danny’s passing:

For years our family, have celebrated Thanksgiving at my father's house.  The meal was always abundant and delicious - turkey with dressing and gravy, ham, green beans . . . my mouth waters just thinking about it! But the highlight of Thanksgiving was not the food, or the televised football games, or the fun. The highlight was always the fellowship around the dining room table. As we sipped our coffee and gorged on one last piece of pie, my father presided at the head of the table as each person shared what he or she was most thankful for. . .  We still celebrate this way today, although our family circle is so large we have our dinner at a conference center.  But the highlight is sill the story of thanks.

One day, in My Father's House, the table will be set and supper will be ready. One day you and I and all of the Father's children will be seated around that table. One day our Father will preside as He gathers us to Himself, listening intently and lovingly as we share our love for each other and our love for Him. One day My Father's House will be filled with His family, and it won't get any better than that!

In Daniel chapter nine, Daniel poured out his heart in prayer. What happened? Heaven was moved, a nation was changed, and generations felt the impact. This is the kind of prayer that’s possible for your life, and one that Anne Graham Lotz will help you understand in The Daniel Prayer.
