Can’t Sleep - May 12, 2023

Millions of Americans have trouble sleeping, and you may be one of them. Only one other living creature has as much trouble resting as we do. They are woolly, simple-minded, and slow – sheep! Sheep can’t sleep.

For sheep to sleep, everything must be just right. No predators, no tension in the flock. Everything just so. Sheep need help. They need a shepherd to “lead them”and help them “lie down in green pastures.” Without a shepherd, they cannot rest.

Without a shepherd, neither can we. Psalm 23:2 says, “He, (speaking of the Shepherd) makes me to lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside the still waters.” Note he makes me, he leads me. Who’s the active one? Who’s in charge? The Shepherd is.
