i have been meditating on what it means to have a seat at the table with Father Son and Holy Spirit. First I sometimes forget that the title God belongs to the Trinity, a 3 person entity. The table discussion is Them including you in on what They are doing. You get to hear Their heart and plan. They give you a place to express yourself and what part you could play in the God plan.
Isaiah in Chapter six come into the heavenly realm and heard the plan . His first revelation was about his unworthiness.
However in the end he said send me. The table cleansed him to do so.
What being at the table is not , is you telling God what you think he should do . You have not acquired the love compassion and heart that God has for the people, Nor do you see the big picture.
As aparent we train our children ,hopefully to be contributors to the family dynamic in the ways we see that they can.
If you set them at your family planning table It is mostly about what is on your agenda and what it will take to fulfill the plan. You would no doubt leave a time to hear the children's hearts and what they believe they need.
As a loving parent you would address it all. Soe Can be assigned tasks because of their skills and capabilities.You may assign a task just to grow them that they are unsure of . However you would work closely with them to help them be successful. Their would probably be other things that you see would delight their heart to do. Some would be willing to make sacrifices to accomplish the plan because they have come to understand the important meaning of it and their heart is with yours. He is a good Father and we are part of a great family.
