"The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want, He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside still waters." Psalm 23:1
IN JESUS TODAY!
This is one of the most quoted, and one of the most recognized scriptures of the Bible, and in my opinion one of the most beautiful! The promise of green pastures and still waters takes us far away from the troubles of our lives and brings us to that place of peace that we all desire. Here is Jesus leading us from our troubles and into that heavenly peace that we experience when all but his goodness is blocked from our minds and we stand in his presence, still waters where we know our life is blessed, where the waves of life are calm and Jesus is walking with us, where we are still before him, yet fruit grows and prosperity to the spirit and soul blossoms because Jesus gives us a life more abundant. Jesus truly is the way, and the truth, and the life, as it is written, "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me." John 14:6 See here that Jesus is here to lead us to peace, to lead us into his righteousness, and to protect us from all danger! And we read, "He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his names sake." Psalm 23:2
Friends, Jesus has invested his reputation and his name into you and your life for his name's sake, he keeps us, he protects us, and is our guardian to our soul! We can trust Jesus to love us and keep us always in perfect peace when our minds and our hearts are stayed upon him.
