THE PSALMS SERIES

The Divine Shepherd (pt 3 of 3)

Psalm 23:5-6

Introduction

Last week:

• T

Read Psalm 23:5-6/ Pray

Trans: First, notice the end of vs 5 says…

1. You Prepare A Table Before Me in the Presence of My Enemies (vs 5) – THAT’S HOPE

HOPE defined – a feeling that what is wanted can be had

Heb 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”

Table in Hebrew is “shell khan” (shulchan) which means “kings table”

Think for a minute what the setting would be like on a King’s table who is about to eat

The best of everything has been prepared for the King…nothing is lacking

The Lord is not just preparing any table…He is preparing for me a table to dine with THE KING

No matter what my lot in this life and on this earth is…one day…even in the midst of my enemies

I can have HOPE because I will sit at the KING’S table

He is preparing a place for me (John 14:1-3) – I have a reservation with eternity to dine with Him forever

Trans: Second…

2. You Anoint My Head with Oil – THAT’S CONSECRATION!

Consecration means being dedicated to service and worship of God

God has set each of us aside…called us out unto Himself…dedicated to serve and worship Him

David was anointed as a young boy to be King – he was set aside to serve and worship God and to lead God’s people to do the same

The word “anoint” literally means “to make prosperous” – not of this world’s wealth but to prosper in the Kingdom

You and I have been consecrated…anointed…to serve and worship God and to lead others into the same

Trans: Notice that in God’s provision, he says…

3. My Cup overflows – THAT’S ABUNDANCE!

When I am fully consecrated to the Lord…to serve and worship Him…I will have an overflowing abundance of His grace

John 10:10 “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

Abundant in Greek means – “over and above, more than necessary”

Overflow means “saturation”

Like a sponge that can’t absorb anymore…it overflows…that God’s abundant grace

God’s grace is over and above, more than necessary so that we are saturated with it

It is a bottomless and endless supply of all that I need from Him

He will satisfy and quench my thirst and I have more than enough to be able to share of His grace with others around me

God’s kingdom…His presence resides in us…and it should overflow to others around us

John 7:38 “He that believes in me, as scripture has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water”

Trans: As God prepares my table, and anoints me, and overflows my cup he says…

4. Surely Goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life – THAT’S BLESSING!
