Ask for the water of the word of God and ye shall receive that ye may be refreshed
He makes me to lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside the still waters; Psalms 23:2
Whatever the Good Shepherd does, it is always consistent with the needs of the sheep. If the herd is moving on, He leads it: no sheep has to find its own way. But pauses for rest just as necessary as the travelling. Then the shepherd attends to the need for rest, food and refreshment.
“He makes me to lie down in green pastures.” This is the chance to rest. What a contrast to the hectic business life, the uneasiness of political activity or modern mans constant lack of time!
To everything there is a season… Ecc 3:1-8
