Quiet Waters

Psalm 23:2-3 (NIV). He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.......

Thoughts on This Verse... Some of us won't slow down for anything! Well, almost anything. ...When we get''too full ourselves'' and too caught up in our own plans, the LORD, our Shepherd, slows us down and makes us lie down. Our Shepherd knows we need rest, nourishment, and refreshment and helps us, yes and even sometimes makes us, find''green pastures'' and''still waters.'' He then leads us in the direction of his righteousness and holiness once we are rested and refreshed. Isn't it interesting that God's order for our life is always grace and then glory?


God you are amazing!!!Thank you for this very timely message, Lord I pray that I'll be refreshed and rested in your presence today.
