God is faithful and God is love. The Love He has for us is not even comprehend-able, we cannot try to fathom God’s love. The verse says that He makes us to lie down; that is God recognizes when we need to rest and in fact we can live a life of rest always, not necessarily when it is time to go to bed. God gives us PEACE!. It goes further to say that He not only makes us to lie down or rest, but it is in “green pastures” a place of abundance, a beautiful place, a conducive environment where we can thrive and stretch our potential, where we do not constantly have to fear or worry.
The second part says that He leads us. God is our leader, He knows that life could be confusing sometimes so He guides us because He is our Father, He doesn’t want us to miss it. He shows us the way and if at all we have missed it, He redirects our paths. Also, He not only leads but leads besides the still waters”. That is, He does not lead us to and in a confused place, He leads out of confusion, and even when we are confused, He first of all stills the waters and calms the storm so we can hear His voice. God is not an author of confusion but of peace.
God can be trusted with your life, He loves you and wants the absolute best for you, He wants to showcase you to the world, God wants to colour your life and make you a shinning star.Trust in Him with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path. Lean and depend on God, He is reliable and dependable.
Confession: Lord. I know nothing of my own, I lean on You and I trust in Your guidance and leadership. I trust you to make me lie in green pastures and I trust you to lead me beside still waters. Amen!
