(Psa 23:2) – He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
For the Christian, two of the most overlooked gifts of grace are peace and rest. Through the work of Christ on the cross, we can rest knowing we are at peace with Him and are being held secure by Him.
In Psa 23:2, the Psalmist centered on these two gifts. To be “led beside still waters” speaks of the peace that we are given when we follow His path to salvation and Godly service. To be “made to lie down in green pastures”, speaks of the rest we can enjoy knowing we are at peace with Him.
Do you know that your sins have been forgiven and you are in a right standing with God? This is the first step to being able to rest and be eternally protected in Him.
May the Lord bless each one of us as we “Think On These Things”.
