Summary: David tells us in Psalm 23:5 that he is experiencing the "Overflow." The "Overflow" is only experienced by those Sheep who have declared the LORD to be their Only Shepherd, and are seeking to bring every aspect of their life under the Total Lordship of J
"My Cup Runneth Over."
Jesus said that one of His objectives for entering this time-space continuum, which we call Earth, was that we might have life on a permanent basis, and that we might enjoy the possession of living More Abundantly. Said Jesus in St. John 10:10, "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it More Abundantly."
David tells us in Psalm 23:5 that he is experiencing that "Overflow." The "Overflow" is only experienced by those Sheep who have declared the LORD to be their Only Shepherd, and are seeking to bring every aspect of their life under the Total Lordship of Jesus Christ.
This Overflow comes as a direct result of Following the Lord’s Liberating Leadership - He Leadeth Me, He
Maketh Me,He Restoreth My Soul.And in time of Trouble, to rest upon His Awesome Presence and Protection-Yea, though I walk thru the valley .... And knowing that the Lord will Bring You Thru, you can look forward to His Perfect Provisions - He prepares a Table before me, He Anoints My Head with Oil.
I tell you, Possessing and Feeling the Lord’s Anointing on Your Life will cause YOUR CUP TO RUN
OVER!!! It’s that Spillage, that Overflow, that RUN
OVER THING that is missing in most of our lives; and
in particular, in our GIVING, OUR FINANCES.
And so, our concern tonight is HOW DO WE GET TO THIS RUNNING OVER STAGE IN OUR WALK WITH THE LORD? WHAT ARE THE STEPS INVOLVED IN GOING FROM A TRICKLE TO RUNNING OVER?
I. STEP ONE IS TO TURN YOUR CUP RIGHT SIDE UP!
In most good resturants the coffee cups are placed up-side down on the saucer. And if you desire coffee, you just turn your cup right-side up. And a good waitress/waiter takes that signal as your desire for coffee. If you want the coffee, just turn your cup right-side up!
Many of us are trying to Live the Abundant Life with Up Side-Down Cups!
Our Cup Must Be Turned Right Side-Up. Be Open To Believe God. To Receive of His Fullness.
TURN YOUR CUP RIGHT SIDE-UP!!
II. STEP TWO IS TO HAVE YOUR CRACKED CUP MENDED!
Some of Our Cups are Not Running Over because They Are Cracked!
Cracked from Disobedience!
Cracked from Selfishness!
TAKE YOUR CRACKED CUP TO THE POTTER TO BE MENDED!!!
Now, when Our Upside-Down Cups have been Turned Right Side-Up and Our Cracked Cups have become Mended Cup,
With the ANOINTING,OUR CUP WILL RUN OVER!!!
Turn Your Cup Right Side Up and say:
"Fill my cup, Lord;
I Lift it up, Lord;
Come and quench this thirsting of my Soul.
Bread of Heaven,
Feed me ’til I want no More.
Fill My Cup.
I Lift It Up.
Lord, Make Me Whole."
