He restores my soul…



Psalm 23:1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters; 3 he restores my soul. He leads me in right paths for his name’s sake.

This morning I’m struck by the verbs associated with the shepherd: “makes”, “leads”, “restores”, “leads” again. The shepherd is taking initiative, not the sheep. Sheep wander off. Sheep frighten easily. They can be anxious animals. It is the shepherd who brings peace and safety.

Lord Jesus seek me when I wander. Calm me when I fret. Restore me when I’m broken. Amen.
