The Overflowing Cup
“You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.” Psalm 23:5
God wants to bless you above all you can ask or imagine. Have you settled for a minimum mentality? God doesn’t want to give you the bare minimum. He is a maximum God. In yesterday’s devotion, five thousand ate until they were full. There were even baskets of leftovers! They were receiving from an overflowing cup that didn’t just meet the need. It exceeded the need. God is a generous God.
You may feel like your cup has gone dry, but you are wrong. The enemy wants you to focus on what you don’t have. In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve’s cups were overflowing. They took their eyes off their cups when the enemy said, “Why can’t you have fruit from that tree?” They overlooked the 99.9 percent they did have. Always remember, if you have Jesus, you have way more blessings in your life than problems.
When you decide to follow Him, blessings will not only follow you, but they will also follow your children. Your cup will overflow onto them. There’s no limit or end to God’s love. Psalm 23 concludes with a beautiful promise, “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
