Verse to Quiet the Soul

Psalm 23:1-3a
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.  He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters,  he refreshes my soul.

COMMENTARY
A shepherd looks after the well-being of his flock. Even though this is true, sheep sometimes wander. Our verse today comes from a sheep who recognizes the goodness of his shepherd, and lives covered under his care. There is a promise to meet our needs, a promise of restoration, and a promise of relationship; not only in this Psalm, but throughout scripture. Our amazing shepherd, Jesus Christ, has led us to salvation and he has promised rest for those for those who come to Him. This is not a rest promising an easy life, but it is rest with our Father who yearns to shepherd and restore us.
