11 March 2023 ‘My cup runs over.’ Psalm 23:5 NKJV

David said: ‘Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over’ (v.4-5 NKJV). God didn’t promise that we wouldn’t have to deal with death, or fear, or evil, or enemies. He simply said that in spite of them, and sometimes in the midst of them, He’ll still pour His abundant blessings over us. Next time you pour a cup of tea or coffee and it laps over onto the saucer, you have an ‘overflowing’ or a ‘surplus’. Our God is a God of surplus, of plenty. Paul wrote, ‘God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others’ (2 Corinthians 9:8 NLT). He saturates us with joy and peace ‘so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit’ (Romans 15:13 NIV). He generously gives a surplus of joy – He causes us to ‘rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory’ (1 Peter 1:8 NKJV). He also provides a surplus of peace – He gives ‘the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding’ (Philippians 4:7 NKJV). So whenever we’re struggling, or fearing the future, we can gain some confidence back by saying out loud, ‘God is my source; I have more than enough, my cup overflows.’ We don’t even have to wait until we’re in times of need or crisis; we can make it a habit every day.
