Fruit of the Spirit in Psalm 23

The fruit of the Spirit is love joy peace etc.

Ps 23 says You lay before me a table in the presence of my enemies.

Eph 6:12 says we don’t wrestle against flesh and blood but against spiritual forces of evil.

Lets add these together and take an example.

Enemy ‘I feel unloved’. What is on the table to eat in the presence of this enemy? Love. A fruit of the Spirit!

What do you do with fruit? EAT IT!

Enemy – depression. Fruit of the Spirit – joy and peace. Eat this fruit laid on the table of the word of God.

Enemy – anger against someone who’s hurt you. Fruit on table – kindness. Etc etc

God provides the fruit of the Spirit for us to eat in the presence of our enemies.

Oh – and it can grow on us too as character.
