“My cup runs over.” Ps 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” (vv. 4–5 NKJV). Notice, God didn’t promise that you 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, your cup will still overflow with His blessing. Next time you pour a cup of tea or coffee and it overflows onto the saucer, you have an “overflowing” or a “surplus.” Your God is a God of surplus. Paul writes, “God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others” (2Co 9:8 NLT). He saturates you with joy and peace, “so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” (Ro 15:13 NIV). He bestows a surplus of joy—He causes you to “rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory” (1Pe 1:8 NKJV). He also provides of a surplus of peace—He gives “the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding” (Php 4:7 NKJV). So when you’re struggling to make ends meet, or you fear the future, look in the mirror and say, “God is my source; I have more than enough, my cup overflows.” And don’t just do that in times of need or crisis; make it a habit you practice every day.
