He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters.
When I was little I begged dad to let me mow and hoe, but he said I was too small. Then I grew. I mowed, and decided hoeing was better. After hoeing, bagging groceries at our country store seemed preferable. Finally I reached a disappointing conclusion—there “ain’t no” green grass! God’s green pastures span the heart yielded to Him. Paul said he was content anywhere (Philippians 4:11). If you’re looking for green pastures in circumstances and places, you’ll find them browning over when you get there. Let God lead you to the green pastures of the heart, and you will find lushness no matter where you are.
