He Makes Me

He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul.” Psalm 23:2,3a

Sometimes God has to make me do things. I’m sure that’s not a surprise to any of us. There are commands and principles that are clearly defined in His Word. One of those things is the concept of a Sabbath. God modeled this – He rested on the 7th day. When I don’t willingly obey, sometimes out of sheer love for me, “He makes me.” What a patient loving heavenly Father. He knows my soul needs restoration and sometimes I’m too stubborn to slow down on my own. Thank you Lord, for “making me” lie down in green pastures.
