“Psalm 23.vs 5 You prepare a table before me, in the presence of my enemies”
I find I’m pondering over this… I’m guessing like you that it’s a food table here, that the writer meant God would be the chef. So now I’m wondering about a food table, right in front of my enemies! Sounds great! 
But wait a minute! Enemies? I don’t have any of those! I’m a good person, and even when I’m not being so good, I’m not so bad as to have anyone want to be my enemy. 
Say again? 
No enemies right? Have fun comparing having a feast made by God Himself, amidst friends only, with having ‘enemies’ around, or at least ‘frienemies’
I’m thinking it would be a whole lot more fun to have enemies around though. 
Scriptures say I have enemies, I better believe that. They even insinuate that there may be enemies among my family members, so who am I to say I have none? Some intentional, some accidental, some clueless, and some simply envious. 
Whichever way I made my enemies, I believe I have them, and it’s OK, cos I’m gonna need them around when my table is set. 
They are my audience; They are my stepping stones to success; My enemies are my ultimate push to greatness. I need them to grow. 
And when God’s done with me, I need them to be around and watch me dine at this table.
