“He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters”. – Psalm 23:2
It is blessed assurance to know that an omnipotent and loving God guides you from day to day. The Lord does not promise that all the pastures will always be green – sometimes they will be barren and desolate. He has also not promised that the waters will always be tranquil – sometimes the waves will break turbulently over us and the sky will be covered with ominous storm clouds. But the promise is that God, in His time will bring us to green pastures and quiet waters.
If we put our childlike and unconditional trust in Him, we may rest assured in the knowledge that God will guide us in our everyday lives.
Lord God, it is a glorious reassurance to me that you are my Shepherd and that in your hands I am safe and secure. Amen.
