He Leads
Psalm 232 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.Click here for other translations

David lived the life of a shepherd. He understood the "heart" of a shepherd. Therefore, he compared his life to the life of the flock. God was his shepherd. God would always supply his needs. God would lead him to the "green pastures" for nourishment and rest. God would also lead him to the still waters for drink.David makes it clear that God leads him to "still" waters.

A good shepherd would make the extra effort to be sure that his sheep were drinking from calm waters because water that was moving rapidly could prove dangerous to the sheep's life if it fell into it.Today, we could follow any shepherd, but only the "Good Shepherd" will lead us to the "still waters".

In the stress of the job, the home, and the finances, I fail, many times, to recognize the peace that can be found in the "green pastures" and by the "still waters" of God. Our God is all sufficient. He offers us a peace beyond our understanding. Are you letting him guide your life?May God bless your day with peace,

Greetings from Auckland, I came to your blog via Deborah, who had left a message on Gail's blog (sounds long winded). Anyway, a pleasure to stumble across your blog, and I hope to read more soon. This forthcoming conference in Christchurch sounds very interesting!
