“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters.

“He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” Psalms 23:1-3

You find rest when the Lord is leading you. Jesus Christ is the good and faithful shepherd. Let Him lead you to a place of rest.

Sheep trust their shepherd to lead them to a place where there are green pastures and still waters.

They do not find that place on their own. They are led there by the shepherd. Their role is to hear his voice and follow him.

When you hear His voice, do not harden your heart. Be quick to respond. Follow Him to the special place He has prepared for you.

When God is your shepherd, you do not need to worry. No wonder David says: “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” (Psalms 23:1)

God has all the power to provide us with everything we need.

We have no reason to ever worry or be anxious about anything in this life. Anxiety and worry mean there is a lack of trust in God’s sovereign power to provide for us.

Honestly, can you do it on your own? Learn to trust God.

In Him, you need to rest securely, fully knowing that even though you walk through the valley of the shadow of death, you will fear no evil: for thou art with you; His rod and His staff they comfort you.

Find rest in the shadow of the Almighty, in the secret place of the Most High. Being in Christ is being in the secret place of the Highest God.

In His presence, you are safe. There is no better place to be than being in the presence of God.

Find rest in His presence.Psalms 91:1-2 reads: “Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

“This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God, and I trust Him.”

Cast all your worries on Him for He will take care of them all. Worry not; find rest in Him, believing that He will take care of everything that concerns you. After all, He is your shepherd.
