Women for the Nations is a ministry that aims to be an interdednominational, international fellowship of women. The aim of WFN is to empower women to discover their purpose, realise their potential, become women of passion, being aware of who they are in Jesus Christ, having an intimate relationship with God, knowing Him in all His ways and having a mature understanding of the Word of God.
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, KerryThe Floodgate Ministry Team
