MY CUP OVERFLOWS 2


“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.”

Psalm 23:5 (NKJV)


Precious one, the cup which our Shepherd-Host serves us with is an overflowing cup.

“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Psalm 23:5 (ESV).

The reality is that whatever the Lord (who is our Shepherd-Host) serves you with, He serves it superabundantly. One may think it is wrong to say Our Lord serves. He is King and we must serve Him. That is the irony here. Our Lord is not the King who demands service. He serves you and any service you may render to Him, He does it with you. For without Him you can do nothing. (John 15:5).

“For even the Son of Man did not come expecting to be served by everyone, but to serve everyone, and to give his life as the ransom price in exchange for the salvation of many.” Mark 10:45 (TPT).

The Lord serves you with His best.

The term or word “Cup” in Psalm 23:5, has been given several meanings. Considering the various figurative meanings of “Cup” in all through scriptures.

This word is used in scriptures in both figurative sense and literally. Literally, it is a usual cup (either of horn or some precious metal); it is used for drinking during meals or ceremonies. It is used during a family or a solemn sacred meal.

At such sacramental meals, the head or father of the family pronounced certain blessings over the cup. That makes the cup, a cup of blessing. Depending on the pronouncement made over the cup. (These cups are mostly filled with wine). After tasting it, the head or father passes it around to the company and his whole family, who will also partake of it. (Just as it happened during the “Lord’s supper“).

All through the scriptures, you will find expressions such as:
The “cup of salvation” (Psalm 116:13) The “cup of consolation” (Jeremiah 16:7)
There is the cup of death, the cup of trembling, and the cup of wrath.

These are figurative expressions.

In ancient East and even Egypt, there was also an art of divining by means of a cup (Genesis 44:2-17)

The concept of the cup in a figurative or metaphoric sense depicts an individual’s fate, destiny, and satisfaction of time and life.

For example,
In Psalm 16, the Psalmist said,
O Lord, You are the portion of my inheritance and my cup; You maintain my lot.” Psalm 16:5 (NKJV).

Read it in The Passion Translation:

“Lord, I have chosen you alone as my inheritance. You are my prize, my pleasure, and my portion. I leave my destiny and its timing in your hands.”

However, Psalm 23:5 gives emphasis to an abundant life with an overflowing cup (portion of blessings and satisfaction). In an arid or semiarid topography, this is an overwhelming or mighty picturesque.

Now from the above point, I want you to know that YOUR CUP which runs over is not merely an object you have in your hand.

It is your LIFE.

The Psalmist said, “MY CUP“. This points to “HIS LIFE AND LIVING“.

The Shepherd-Host doesn’t put an object or cup into your hand, just for you to receive His precious wine. His LIFE becomes your LIFE (John 10:10; Colossians 3:4). And this LIFE is the CUP which overflows with HIS RICH ABUNDANT SUPPLY of His drink.

“Now on the last and most important day of the feast, Jesus stood and called out [in a loud voice], “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink! He who believes in Me [who adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Me], as the Scripture has said, ‘From his innermost being will flow continually rivers of living water.” John 7:37-38 (Amplified Bible).

ENJOY THE OVERFLOWING GRACIOUS BLESSINGS OF THE LORD.

Selah.

This our king is simply different and on another Level. His Love is unmatchable.
A king that serves his people and does not necessarily request for service. And any service you would like to render to him , he does it with you again.. hahahahah. Too much.
