Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil… Psalm 23:5 KJV
Thou: Abba, Father. The One who calls me His own. God of every invitation to be where He is. The One who says, “Come follow Me,” “Come be with Me,” “Come know Me.” The Host of all hosts, greeting me with welcome arms.
anointest my head with oil: Anointed by my King and High Priest. Anointed with the oil of gladness. Equipped. Enabled. Empowered. Holy oil—making my face to shine; causing my heart to sing; softening my hands to touch others. Refreshing my life, restoring my soul, renewing my spirit—protecting me from being sun-parched, shielding me from all that would crack, dry, deplete, blister. Fresh oil. Ever flowing. Ever being poured out upon me.
