My Cup Runs Over December 10, 2010

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. – Psalms 23:5 NKJV

This morning I made coffee, like most other mornings. I put the filter in the basket, coffee grounds in filter, water in the tank, pot on the heating plate, and pushed the on button and walked away. Several minutes later, after having occupied myself with facebook and e-mails, I realized it was taking longer than usual. When I checked the pot, I noticed it had been placed in an unsettled position, not far enough back to depress the release lever that lets the coffee drain from the basket into the pot.

While not a common occurrence in life, it seems to be common in spiritual life. We sit unsettled, waiting on our cups to overflow with His grace, love, and mercy, occupying ourselves with the world as we wait. Settle in, Word in hand, and know Him. The relationship is the lever that releases. You won’t have to wait long. Most days, He’s the one waiting on you.
