Psalms 23: Still waters
Psalms 23:2 “He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.”
I love this great Shepherd; he leads the sheep to the exact type of water that is ideal for them. Other animals can drink from fast flowing waters and streams but not the sheep.
The noise of great waters or fast flowing rivers easily frightens the sheep and expose them to the danger of drowning by being carried away by their swiftness and violence pattern. Sheep therefore stay away from violent streams.
Beloved, our shepherd sure knows what we need. He will always take us to peaceful and peaceable places. The still waters talk about quietness and calmness.
Beloved, if their is chaos and trouble around you, try and look out for the traces of the fingers of the enemy. Our shepherd is the Prince of Peace. It is the enemy that thrives in violence and trouble.
Job 34:29 “When he giveth quietness, who then can make trouble?”
Job says once he takes us to the place of quiet waters nobody can disturb us. Stop running after “fast and furiuos”, slowdown and enjoy his peace. Don’t desire fast flowing river so as not to drown or get swept away.
The word “still” as used here also means: comfortable, ease, quiet and restful place.
Our Great Shepherd always lead us to comfortable places. A place of ease and restfulness. No wonder he said:
Matthew 11:28 “Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
Matthew 11:28 “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest.”(MSG)
I want you to know that in a world of chaos, recession, oppression, wars, sicknesses and frustration your case can be different.
So friend, Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out and exhausted? Then it’s high time you run to the Shepherd, get away with him for a total recovery of your life and come enjoy real rest.
Love you BiG!
