Psalm 23 - Lesson 6 “The Goodness of God”

Speaker: Pastor Brock Peters

Sermon Summary: 
Psalm 23:5 (ESV), "You prepare a table for me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows."

LIFEPOINT: Don’t fall for Satan’s oldest trick in the book. God has what’s best for you!

One of Satan's oldest tricks is to get us to have a distorted view of God.  If he can get us to believe that God is not for us, then he can get us to dive into any number of  sins. In today's sermon, we will address how important it is for us to recognize God's goodness.  Psalm 23:5 reminds us of just that! 

Sermon Notes

Psalm 23:1-6 (ESV), “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. 3 He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4 Even 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. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”

LifePoint - Don’t fall for Satan’s oldest trick in the book. God has what’s best for you!

John 10:10 (NIV), “The thief comes only to steal and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

Genesis 3:1-5 (NLT), “The serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild animals the Lord God had made.  One day he asked the woman, ‘Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any tree in the garden?’ ‘Of course we may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,’ the woman replied. ‘It’s only the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden that we’re not allowed to eat.  God said, ‘You must not eat it or even touch it; if you do, you will die.’ ‘You won’t die!’ the serpent replied to the woman.  ‘God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.’”

Psalm 23:5, “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.”

  1. “You have prepared a table before me” - a prepared table is symbolic of God’s provision, abundance, and hospitality.  
  • Divine Provision 
   Philippians 4:19 (NIV), “And my God will meet all of your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”  

  • Abundance
Ephesians 3:20 (NLT), “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.”
  • Hospitality
Revelation 3:20 (NLT), “Look!  I stand at the door and knock.  If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.”

2. “You anoint my head with oil” - anointing with oil is a symbolic gesture of blessing and favor.  
  • Blessing
Ephesians 1:3 (NLT), “All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.”

  • Favor
Proverbs 3:3-6 (NLT), “Never let loyalty and kindness leave you! Tie them around your neck as a reminder.  Write them deep within your heart.  Then you will find favor with both God and people, and you will earn a good reputation.  Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.  Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.”

3. “My cup overflows” - the overflowing cup shows God’s divine generosity and provides us with joy and fulfillment even in the midst of life’s challenges and uncertainties.

  • Divine Generosity 
Ephesians 1:7,8 (NLT), “He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins.  He has showered his kindness on us, along with wisdom and understanding.”

  • Joy 
John 15:11 (NLT), I have told you these things so that you may be filled with my joy.  Yes, your joy will overflow!”

  • Fulfillment 
1 Timothy 6:6 (NIV), “But godliness with contentment is great gain.”
