The Good Shepherd

Psalm 23: 2

He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside quiet waters.
Do you notice that Jesus doesn’t lead us into valleys of destruction? He leads us to mountain tops and to green pastures. We get the crazed notion, sometimes, that God is leading us into the storms. Nope, He is trying to lead you out of the storm. He is there helping you out of the trials and tribulations. He always leads you to the light.
David wrote in verse four that even though he, David, walks through the valley of the shadow of death he would not fear because his shepherd, Jesus, would keep him. Interestingly enough, David wasn’t pitching a tent in the valley of the shadow of death. He was walking through. Challenges sometimes come but Jesus is there to lead you out and he will keep you safe in the interim.

The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are all leading us to quiet green pastures where there is plenty of food and cool, clear water. All things are good where they lead us. There is always plenty. Just follow your shepherd.
