God Restores Our Soul

God is our shepherd, our bulwark, our awesome strength. In Him, we have everything and lack nothing. He encourages us to rest in pleasant fields where He gives us relief. He takes us by the hand and leads us to calm waters where we find peace.

He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.

(Psalm 23:2-3)

God shows us the path to walk, which leads to righteousness. All glory belongs to His name. Even in our darkest moment, we will not fear, for He is with us. He is our comfort and our hope. Whatever evil surrounds us will be no more.

God will bless us in the presence of our enemies. The outpouring of His love is generous such that at times we will not know what to do with it all. Our cup will overflow daily with His blessings.

God’s mercy for us will never end. His goodness surrounds our lives always. When all else fails, God is there to keep us safe and to lead us to dwell with Him forever.

God restores our soul.

  1. And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,
    Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
    Ephesians 1:22,23

    For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
    For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
    But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.
    Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
    For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
    The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
    For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.
    And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
    1 Corinthians 15:21-28

  2. Reading your post today reminds of several funerals I have spoken at, using Psalm 23 to bring God’s comfort to the mourning.God does indeed offer His simple direction: to lie down where He has provided the space to and at other times to keep moving as we follow His leading, even through the valley of the shadow death. This reminds me not to linger in my grief, but rather to remain focused on the One who has the very best path always prepared for me.

    1. Pastor Chuck, when writing this, I wanted to capture Psalm 23 in my own words because of its significant impact in my life during times of trial. I’m thankful I could encourage others to lay all their faith on God, for He will never abandon us in our time of need. God bless.
