Psalm 23 Part 3

We are still in verse 2 of Psalm 23: “He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.” (KJV)

Today we will be looking at the fact that God makes us to lie down in green pastures. We can read this text and easily miss the fact that green pastures were not easily found in this part of the world. They were sometimes created by shepherds. Work was required in either finding green pastures or in cultivating green pastures. This text shows the planning that goes into God’s care for us. God provides for us more than we can accept. He blesses us even when where we are does not seem like there are possibilities for pleasantness to come from it.

Although I am far from an expert on things Middle Eastern, I do remember flying over miles and miles of desert and seeing one vast area of green appearing out of, seemingly, nowhere among desert land. It was a sight for sore eyes. In this context, the desert, the green area seemed extra beautiful. I asked myself, “How could such beauty be found in such a barren place?” In the middle of miles of desert, there was a place where grass grew freely and palm trees grew in abundance.

God is not limited by appearances; do you remember David fighting Goliath – a man over 9 feet tall?

God is not limited by time; do you remember Abraham and Sarah – they had a child well past child bearing age (Sarah 90 and Abraham 100 years old).

God is not limited by resources; do you remember the children of Israel – they were fed in a desert for 40 years.

When you see dried up looking circumstances know that God can find and / provide green pastures for you to rest in. God sees far beyond what we can, and because He is a good shepherd He has provided what we need in advance, so let’s trust Him!
