Fill Your Cup til it Overflows

“You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings.” Psalm 23:5

In the Bible, oil is symbolic of the anointing of God. Do you know what oil does? It makes things “flow”. Whenever there is friction or something gets stuck, putting oil on it makes it become more fluid, more smooth. I’m thinking about cooking ~ you put oil in the skillet so things cook better, more evenly and without sticking ALSO WD-40 sure helps that door from sticking and squeaking every time you open or close it, right? Well that’s what God wants to do for you ~ He wants to anoint your head with oil and when He does that, notice what David says in Psalm 23, “Because God anoints me, because I walk in His favor; surely, goodness and mercy will follow me everywhere I go.”

You know, God’s anointing makes things easier ~ people will go out of their way to be good to you for no reason ~ His feast prepared for only you right in the presence of your enemies ~ enemies that are human/people, intangible/sickness and/or materials/money. You are given creativity, wisdom and good ideas. God’s anointing on your life will cause the right doors to open and it will bring the right people across your path. It will make things go and flow smoother and the good news is, all you have to do is ask Him for it. Remember, He longs to be good to you, you can trust that His anointing will make things easier, and He will lead you into the abundant life He has in store for you!

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your favor in my life today. Thank You for causing me to be at the right place at the right time. Anoint my head with Your oil so that I can move forward in the path You have for me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
