THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
To ALL Christians:
1 Peter 2:9
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood,
an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should
shew forth the praises of him who hath called you
out of darkness into his marvellous light:
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
thou anointest my head with oil;
my cup runneth over.
Light from the Word.
David had experienced several times in his life when God had
prepared food for him and all those with him even when he was
surrounded by the enemy.
In life, Christians are surrounded by the enemy.
But God provides the "food" we need for daily sustenance.
He not only provides physical food, but also spiritual food which
strengthens us even more.
The anointing of the "head with oil" was a sign of God's divine
providential care and His divine election.
David had been anointed to be king over Israel even while Saul
was still king.
God had CHOSEN him for a special task, and God would be sure
that he completed that task.
These provisions of God, as THE SHEPHERD of our souls, is
enough to make our "cup" run over with the fullness of joy!
BUT THERE IS YET MORE!!!
