Psalm 23 KJV 1900
A Psalm of David. 1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: And I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
THE 23RD Psalm paints such a pretty picture of the Lord leading us his sheep in verse 5 we get to the our cup running over meaning that God has blessed us with more than we need… But to be honest we find that life has beaten and abused us, our ends don’t meet and some of us can’t even find our cup to have it filled by God. Lets try to help some of us today..
We must look at the scene closely as we see the table is set but my cup is still empty why is it that some of our cups are being filled while others still sit empty.. I present you with this as a table is set the cups are normally placed upside down on the table ..

We must fist prepare ourselves to accept what God has for us .. let me make it a little clearer we must be open to what GOD has to say about our lives and how we should live our lives..

Some of us most of us our cups are still sitting at the table up side down how many of you know you can’t fill an up side down cup…

Jesus described people with upside down cups being one of the reasons he taught in parables

(KJV 1900)
Matthew 13:13–15 KJV 1900
13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. 14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: 15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
We hear all that the world has to say but nothing God has to say we live our lives according to the madness sin has in store for us instead of hearing what sayest the Lord only you can turn your cup right side up..
Romans 10:8–12 KJV 1900
8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. 12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
How shall you open your cup how shall you hear I’m glad you asked
Romans 10:14 KJV 1900
14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
Romans 10:17 KJV 1900
17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
"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."
I hear you Lord I’ve learned to hear your voice and yet I still find that my cup is not filled.. some us have have been beaten and abused by life done some things we are now proud of .. Some of us even wonder just how can God forgive some like me.. Upon closer inspection we find that these cups have cracks or we’ve let life beat us so that we went off got upset and in a raged turned over the table and knocked our cup on the floor… sin has a way of keeping us from receiving all that God has for us, sin will always keep you longer then you wanted to stay and take you further then you had planned on going.. whatever it is that you dealing with that has you feeling unworthy or prevents you from living the rich life that God has for you..

In the military we had to keep our gear clean and shinning they gave some called brasso that we would take and begin to polish and rub and polish to remove the tarnish that had built up .. SOME STAINS you just have to scrub to get out… there is product on the market that says sometimes when scrubbing wont do. We need to shout it out is there someone in the house today that no matter how hard you try to get your life right (life still happens) you may need to shout it out, no matter how much you try to go in the right direction you find your self down the wrong road you need to shout it out
