The Feast

in Introduction to Kingdom Calling

The Feast“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.  You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.  Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.” (Psalm 23:5-6)

The Feast is the time where you enjoy the fruits of your labor.  We step back from the process and take a moment to enjoy the progress that you’ve made.

Kingdom Calling’s methodology for helping you convert your finances from haphazard, to focused and ready for purposeful use following your unique calling is carefully designed.  From the insight and learning of the first four stages, into the action steps of The River, they are ordered to get you in line with God and what he has planned for you.  They’re also designed to work – to protect everything God has given you to steward, improve cash flow, and impart financial freedom.

In stage 6 –The Feast – we review just how well things are working.

We’ll review questions like: What progress was made?   What did you implement, and what was the subsequent outcome?  Are there additional adjustments or tweaks necessary?

Have you ever noticed those diet programs that have the before and after pictures?  They’re used as marketing, but such pictures also encourage the individual to take a picture of themselves and hang it on the mirror.  The reason for this is that progress happens slowly.  And you don’t notice the change happening day to day, but when you look back, you can see that enormous progress being made over the course of months.

The same is true in your financial life.  As you make the small changes over the course of this process, each one is very manageable.  But now as we sit back and look at what’s happened in your life, you begin to see that you’re able to function in the world in an entirely different way.  You are a much more responsible, prudent, and productive steward of what God has given you.  This stage is about enjoying this breakthrough.

The Lord has prepared a feast for those who truly hunger to eat from His table above all others of this world.  The food He offers is His Life which He desires to give you more of each day.  And there is no reason to diet from this banquet!  The Steward’s Calling process up until now will have helped you be more prepared to eat of His table as you have become more aligned with His will for your life and have subsequently aligned your financial life with this reality.

A feast indeed!
