“Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.”
In spite of the desire of our enemies for us to suffer destruction, the Lord prepares a table from which we can feast.
What a picture of the abundant blessings we receive from the Lord!
“The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.”
When we make praying for others a priority, we will see a difference in our lives as well.
Picture a few glasses side-by-side, each filled with differing levels of water.
One glass nearly full, two about half-full, and one with just a small amount of water inside.
If the levels of water represented how our week was going and the level of encouragement and blessings we possessed today, which glass would best represent you?
Is your glass half-full or half-empty?
Are you full almost to brim, or just barely getting by?
Those days when our glass is nearly full are the times when we can pour ourselves into other people so that they too can remember to find comfort in the Lord.
“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”
Sometimes we need a friend to remind us that the Lord is our Shepherd that is Able to restore us.
“He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.”
The abundance of the Lord’s blessings will make our cup overflow.
When our cup runs over, drinking from the saucer should make us want more of Him.
“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.”
