In Psalm 23 David lists 5 supreme benefit of being a sheep in the fold of the the Lord his Shepherd: 1) we shall not be in want; 2) he makes us lie down in green pastures; 3) he leads us beside quiet waters; 4) he restores our souls; 5) he leads us in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. In other words, choosing to follow the Good Shepherd means provision, safety, security, protection, leading, restoration and rest. No wonder this is one of the most beloved passages in the Bible!
On Sunday we looked into Isaiah’s story, along with excerpts from the undone worship of both Jonah and Paul. Undone worship means coming to the end of ourselves so that God can restore us, heal us and send us into ministry!
