Psalm 23 Part 8
He Anoints Our Head with Oil,
and We Are Running Over

“Where lives change and where life can begin again”

The anointing is a special touch from God that gives us a special ability to do

the works of God. All priests were anointed by oil to bring them into the

ministry for the work of God.


Psalm 133:2 (NIV)

It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard,

running down on Aaron’s beard, down on the collar of his robe.


Leviticus 8:10

10 Also Moses took the anointing oil and anointed the tabernacle and all

that was in it and consecrated them. 11 He sprinkled some of it on the altar

seven times, anointed the altar and all its utensils, and the laver and its

base, to consecrate them. 12 And he poured some of the anointing oil on

Aaron’s head and anointed him, to consecrate him.


Let’s define some special words for better understanding…


Anointing – is to consecrate, bless, ordain; hallow

Hallow – to honor as holy

Consecrate – to set apart for the use of God.

Ordain – to appoint, anoint, consecrate, install, invest, induct


Psalm 23

“You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.”


God anoints (consecrates, sets apart for His use), ordains and hallows (honors

as holy) our head with oil, and our cups runs over with the anointing of God

to do the service of the Kingdom.


I bet you didn’t know all that about yourself! We are heirs and joint-heirs

with Christ. (Romans 8:17)


1 Peter 2:9 (NKJV)

9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own

special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out

of darkness into His marvelous light;


If you were to stop and meditate these scriptures and really get a true

spiritual view of yourself, you would see yourself totally different than who

Satan tries to tell you that you are.

God anoints our head with the oil of His Spirit and empowers us to be, and to

do the work of God in the earth. Therefore, the baptism of the Holy Spirit is

so vitally important.


Take some time to look up an heir and a priest this week. God calls you these

things, so find out what that means. God has a high opinion of you and it is

time we had high opinions of ourselves. Not in an arrogant way, but to the

glory of God. No more excuses; you have what it takes, with Christ on the

inside of you! So, before next week, take some time to look up heir and

priest and meditate on who you are in relation to these words. If you are

doing a bible study right now with this, stop and look up these words and talk

about what that means in relation to you.


Remember, our cup runs over with the anointing that God places in our lives.

Holy Spirit anoints us with the oil of His presence to minister, to see

spiritually the things we need to see and to do the things that we need to

do. He is our helper, guide and strength. We come to church and bible study

and other gatherings in the name of Jesus to be filled up and then “running

over” on everyone that we meet. This power runs over in our service to the

King and Lord of all. This anointing will balance some, encourage others, and

it will bring healing and freedom to all those you meet. It’s your job to run

over and their job to receive it. You just keep getting filled up!


Share Jesus with someone today! Let your cup run over!


Next week we will be talking about:

“Goodness and Mercy Are Following You All the Days

of Your Life”
