Psalm 23 (5b)

“You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.” – Psalm 23:5b NKJV

“So we, like sheep get wounded. And we, like sheep have a shepherd. Remember the words we read? ‘We belong to Him; we are his people, the sheep he tends’ (Ps. 100:3). He will do for you what the shepherd does for the sheep.”

– Max Lucado, “Traveling Light”

“In a sense we are a stiff-necked lot, and were it not for Christ’s continuing compassion and concern for us, most of us would be beyond hope or help. Sometimes I am quite sure Christ comes to us and applies the oil of His own Spirit to our minds in spite of our own objections. Were this not so, where would most of us be? Surely every gracious thought that enters my mind had its origin in Him.”

– W. Phillip Keller, “A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23”

Consider the precious oil of the Good Shepherd…

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for you are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.” – Psalm 23:1-5 NKJV
