My Cup Overflows

I was thinking recently about the words of Psalm 23:5. . . "You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows." With Christ as the foundation of our lives, He fills our cup to overflowing.

It is sobering to see so many people, those who have rejected Christ as their foundation, wasting their lives, desperately seeking fulfillment from the things of this world. But fulfillment can be found only in Christ. He not only fills us, He enables us to be filled, and He fills us to overflowing. Those who live without Christ spend their lives trying to find fulfillment from the things of this world, attempting to "fill their cup" by piling in money, possessions, and pleasures, only to realize, sooner or later, their emptiness. Their cup has no foundation. It cannot be filled. They cannot be fulfilled.

But "my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever" (v. 5-6). To Him be all glory.
