Are you tired? There is someone who offers rest, but not any rest, but a true one, the one that the human being needs, and is called God, who is not busy enough not to attend your prayers. He is the good shepherd, and if we trust Him, then we will have peace.
Psalm 23 is a well-known song, possibly even many non-Christian people know that it says “The Lord is my shepherd,” at least that part. And in the churches, well, come on, I think we mostly recite it by heart.
Now, that it is a Psalm so well known and cited, means that they are truly deep words and that they fill and give hope to our soul. Think for a moment about David, for the moment that perhaps he was happening, and in that difficult moment he could say:
1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 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.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
The Lord is our good shepherd and when we are tired of the storm, dejected, afflicted, when we are in those moments from which we think we will not leave, just there He will make us rest, and beside the still waters he will shepherd us.
