Today's featured devotional...
scotlandsheepYears ago, I was on a trip to Scotland and Ireland. You haven’t seen green grass until you’ve been to Scotland and Ireland. They have some of the most beautiful countryside and rolling green hills I’ve ever seen. You also see many sheep. They graze in these green never-ending pastures. Places like this make me think about Psalm 23:2: “The Lord makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.”

When I am in places like this, I can’t help but see God and all of His creation in everything I gaze upon. I think, God’s will is to lead me to these kinds of places and atmospheres. When He does, it illuminates how magnificent and powerful He is and that the Creator of all these things loves me as His child and wants to lead me beside still waters.

Green pastures and still waters may be more the exception than the experience for most of us. Someone recently said to me, It seems like there’s always something negative going on that wants to spoil my day or current season of life. The truth is, we do have an enemy of our soul. His name is Satan, and He hates God and anything that represents God. Jesus said that this enemy has come to kill, steal, and destroy. Much of the world has seen destruction and death from hurricanes and tornadoes. Did God cause that? Of course not. We live in a defiled world.

The Bible says that because of the choices of man, Satan has become the god of this world. Killing and destruction is what he attempts to do. Even when people pray for help, for too many, it’s like breaking a wishbone. They have no real faith in God or in His love and divine protection. God is moved by relationship in Jesus and by faith in His Word. In the absence of that, the devil has a heyday and tries to destroy. Death and destruction are his playground.

Yet, God even has a plan for those surrounded by destruction and death. We also see that in Psalm 23:4: “Even when I walk through the shadow of death, I will not be afraid. For You, O Lord are close with me. Your rod and your staff (His word and promise) protect and comfort me.”

I’ll tell a bad story on myself. I was one of ten children. When I was about seven years old, I lived in a bedroom with one other younger brother and two younger sisters. I was the big shot because I was the oldest of us four. At night when we were in bed and it was dark, I would pull out my flashlight and make shadows of a spider on the wall. Those shadows scared the ba-geebers out of my younger siblings. I thought it was funny. I regret that now. Obviously, there really was no real danger, but only shadows. Interesting enough though, shadows can and do produce fear.
