Dining with the King

An invitation to find rest at Jesus' feet by Wanani Dube

Dining with the King


Living out God’s promises for us will be determined by what we keep in our hearts, what we feed our minds and what we speak about. All this affects the kind of life we live. What is hidden in your heart will affect your thoughts which in turn influences your beliefs and language ultimately giving birth to your lifestyle.

“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him and he with me.” Revelations 3:20.

Imagine Jesus knocking on the door of your heart and you responding by allowing him to come in and dine with you. As you continue to dine with him, you discover more about him and eventually create the best space for him, your heart, to abide in you forever. Imagine how the abiding presence of Christ can affect your mind, your talk and lifestyle on a daily basis. Join me as we discover The Power of his abiding presence one day at a time. Watch how it begins to affect your:

  • Mindset
  • Language
  • Lifestyle

“Be not conformed to the ways of the world but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind so that you will be able to test and approve God’s good, pleasing and perfect will.”┬áRomans 12:2.

Dining with the King

Picking the highest position before the King which is at his feet;

As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. She has a sister called Mary who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” Martha, Martha, the Lord answered, you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”┬áLuke 10:38-42.

Mary chose to sit at the feet of Jesus and I believe that that’s where she found rest, peace and direction for her life. When we dine with the King, we don’t always have to be busy trying to make everything right because we get distracted and miss the main purpose of the visit. The king has come to dine with you because he delights in you, takes pleasure in spending time with you and wants to bless you. All he desires is that you take that moment and be still in his presence and allow him to serve you. Jesus is a different kind of King because he visits and renders service to you. Open your heart, embrace him and enjoy his abiding presence.
