You lead me to streams
of peaceful water
Today we continue sharing the song, Psalm 23, Lord, You Are My Shepherd (click track title to play song). It is from our latest CD, Before Your Throne.
So far we have learned that God is our Shepherd who gives us everything we need and also provides a place for us to rest.
Today let us look at the fourth phrase in Psalm 23.
You lead me to streams of peaceful water.
Sheep cannot be driven. Sheep hear the shepherd’s voice and follow him, just as we listen to Christ's Word and obey Him. The image of still or peaceful waters is rich with the sense of comfort, care and rest. It may also represent love, peace, beauty and harmony. God desires us to trust in His promises without worrying about anything. He refreshes us with the water of His word so that we will never be thirsty again.
Let us choose to always drink from the living water of Jesus.
Lord, lead us and guide us as the Shepherd to Your streams of peaceful water. We thank You for Your comfort and peace. Amen.
