Beside Still Waters

From He Restores My Soul

He[The Good Shepherd] restores: breathes refreshment and new life into my soul! -Ps 23:3

THE LORD is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall not lack. He makes me lie down in [fresh, tender] green pastures; He leads me beside the still and restful waters. He refreshes and restores my life (my self); -Ps 23:1-3 AMP

Beside still waters

waters of quietness and rest
peaceful streams
waters of refreshment and life

He[The Good Shepherd] restores: breathes refreshment and new life into my soul!

For the Lamb Who is in the midst of the throne will be their Shepherd, and He will guide them to the springs of the waters of life{living fountains of waters}; and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. -Rev 7:17

Today, may you follow the Lamb to living fountains of waters where every tear is wiped away. Beside still waters He restores the soul.

From Barnes’ Notes on the Bible

  • He leadeth me beside the still waters – Margin, “waters of quietness.” Not stagnant waters, but waters not tempestuous and stormy; waters so calm, gentle, and still, as to suggest the idea of repose, and such as prompt to repose. As applied to the people of God, this denotes the calmness – the peace – the repose of the soul, when salvation flows as in a gently running stream; when there is no apprehension of want; when the heart is at; peace with God.
