Its hard to imagine just sitting down and being quiet for awahile, but that's what our souls need for rest and restoration. Monday, we looked at who our Shepherd is – it is a personal relationship with our Lord. Today, we are going to dive into green pastures and still waters so that we may find rest and restoration for a weary soul.
Main Thought: As the shepherd, the Lord goes before us to prepare a pasture that is lush and inviting. He knows that we need to rest our weary bodies and more importantly our weary souls. Each day we are bombarded with noise. Our phones, computers, our networks all are clamoring for a piece of us; however, God knows that what we need is a disconnect from our devices – a power off moment – and that is what the green pastures represent. The still waters that He finds for us are just right – not too fast, not too slow – He has our best intentions in mind. God is asking us, inviting us to spend time with him. He longs to hear our voices. Only God has the power to restore our souls. Our souls are weary from whatever burdens we have been carrying around. It is time that we drop them at the feet of the Shepherd so that we be refreshed and restored.
Application: If we do not slow down long enough to rest, we will eventually explode. Find a place that speaks to your soul, pull up a chair, and talk with God today. He is beckoning you to rest.
Food for Thought: Dare to do something different – power off your devices so that your soul can be restored.
