THE GRASS IS GREENER
Read: Psalm 23
Key Verse: “He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters” Psalm 23:2
People often wonder if there is a better option where the grass is greener. More money, a new drug, affairs, bigger houses, and the world of entertainment are empty solutions for your soul. The Bible confirms that your longings can be satisfied. It only happens when you fully yield to God.
David describes how a shepherd makes the sheep lie down in green pastures. On their own, sheep end up in destruction, disillusionment, and despair. With the wisdom of the shepherd, however, sheep experience true freedom and fulfillment. The shepherd knows where quiet waters are and how to lead the sheep into contentment. What areas of your life are you resisting God’s leading?
The grass is greener when you decide to trust God.
