Still waters. This is where the Lord is trying to lead us. It is hard to drink when the river is wild and busy. The Lord brings His sheep to a place of calm so that they might enjoy His provision and His presence.
In this strange time of everything shutting down perhaps it is a good time to take stock of how busy our lives are. In a culture where being busy proves your worth it is hard to sit by the still waters of the Lord. Our worth is not found in what we do but in whose we are. The Lord calls us to serve Him but he does not call us to busyness. As we sit in our homes and contemplate all that we need to do, or wish we could do, let us remember that the Lord leads his sheep to still waters. Be still before the Lord and let that be enough for today.
