A Psalm of David

 Early this morning when I woke before sunrise, I began to pray. As I did these words came to my mind and heart...

Psalm 23  A Psalm of David.
 The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside still waters,
  he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
   for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
   through the Valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
   for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
   they comfort me.
  You prepare a table before me
   in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
   my cup overflows.
 Surely your goodness and love will follow me
   all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD

  The Lord provides for all.  But it made me wonder why would the Lord 'make me lie down in green pastures'?

Is it a directional thing that we are wandering in life in our own selfish ways? 
Constantly we are working harder and wanting more not giving Him credit for what we have in hand. I truly lack for nothing.  Why do I push for more?

 "He leads me beside the still waters, He refreshes my soul."
He makes peace so attainable and yet we tend to wander the other direction going our way. 

"He guides me along the right paths for his name's sake"  and even when we are in darkness and fear, He promises to be there to care for us. He promises comfort, a full table and a full life, protection from evil, as well as goodness and mercy... if we abide in Him.  

"Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever." Psalm 23:6
