"You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over." (Psalm 23:5, NKJV)
In the Bible, oil is symbolic of the anointing of God. Do you know what oil does? It makes things flow. Whenever there is friction or something gets stuck, oil is used to lubricate it and make it more fluid. That’s what God wants to do for you. He wants to anoint your head with oil. When He does that, notice what David says in Psalm 23, “Because God anoints
me, because I walk in His favor; surely, goodness and mercy will follow me everywhere I go." His anointing makes things easier. For no reason, people will go out of their way to be good to you.
You’re going to have creativity, wisdom and good ideas. God’s anointing on your life will cause the right doors to open. It will bring the right people across your path. It will make things go smoother. And the good news is, all you have to do is ask Him for it. Remember, He longs to be good
to you. You can trust that His anointing will make things easier, and He will lead you into the abundant life He has in store for you!
