He Restores My Soul

by Laurie Aker

He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. (Ps. 23:3)

The Lord our shepherd watches closely over His sheep and restores them to himself when they wan- der. Not one of God’s creatures will lose its way sooner than a sheep, which are so inclined to go astray and so incapable of finding their way back. David knew well what it was to be a shepherd, but he also knew what it was to be a sheep. He had wandered from the Lord, and the Lord restored him. The Lord watches over us and keeps us. As we grow in Christ, we learn more and more how vulnerable we are to temptation and understand our propensity to sin. Ask the Lord to meet you right where you are. Ask Him to tenderly minister to your soul and show you any areas of vulnerability, sin, pride, or unbelief. Take time to confess where you might be weary, struggling, or wandering. And trust Him to lead you in the right path.
