Seasons of Rest

Seasons of Rest

David paints a picture of rest and refreshment in Psalm 23:1-2. We can imagine ourselves in the green pastures, see the sunlight glinting off the rippling water, and sense the shepherd nearby. Just a few phrases later, David speaks of dark valleys, lurking pressures and enemies, yet he finds comfort and courage in the Lord’s guidance, presence, and goodness. Seasons of rest are God’s provision to strengthen us for the challenging work of leading like Jesus. Take advantage of the seasons of rest He gives you, then renewed and refreshed, rise to lead, knowing that He goes with you.

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.—Psalm 23:1-3

Prayer: Lord, our shepherd, thank You for leading us into seasons of rest to refresh our souls. May our leadership reflect that we have been with You. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
