"Overflowing" - Painted Day 1005, reviveINDIANA
"You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows." (Psalm 23:5)
The 23rd Psalm may be the most beautiful of all chapters in the Bible because it gives an accurate description of the Great Shepherd’s protection, provisions, and praises. David writes “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows” (23:5) so the question is; what does the “cup” represent? In the context of this verse and chapter, it speaks about God’s provisions and blessings. The cup is our normal portion in life that God gives each man and woman as He pleases. This psalm made sense to the Jews because when they received a guest, they would intentionally overfill the cup and allow it to run over and by doing this, the guest would know that they’re welcome to stay as long as they want. The psalmist says that God has prepared the table for him (and us) us, He anointed us with oil (representative of the Holy Spirit), and has provided all that we will ever need, even in our times of need. Our cup is not half empty…it is overflowing. ~ Jack Wellman
This is also a picture of fellowship, preparing a table with friends. Do not let your fine china sit in a cupboard and never use it. The Lord wants us to use our best and be a blessing for others. Not store it up for later.
