Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies : thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Psalms 23 verse 5 KJV
We each face those times.
You know the ones. Where we go through some very difficult times and it’s very easy to allow those times to pull us down and push us deep into a quicksand of despair and despondency…
…there’s also a time to get over the gloom and doom and hold our heads up high!
And That’s a SHOUTING MOMENT!
God is pictured as caring for us so much that in the midst of the forces of evil that attempt to destroy our life and soul, He is preparing a table for us!
In the very presence of our enemies!
They can’t see what is happening right in front of their eyes. They think we’re done in– washed up – down and out.
But a table is being prepared – right in their presence!
They only see the process we went through to get here and they think it’s all over.
Our faith in God tells us otherwise.
The Pharisees and Sadducees only saw the crucifixion – they didn’t see the Ascension into heaven!
“Eyes have not seen and ears have not heard….”
There is an anointing coming on our heads. This means God’s blessing will be poured out on us by the Holy Spirit, and a cup that runneth over will be given to us. This refers to the shepherd’s cup, that was a hollowed out stone and held 30 to 50 gallons of water and which the sheep drank.
This is a shouting moment!
So lift your heads and rejoice in the Lord!
Rejoice – rejoice – rejoice
