Scripture Meditation: How to Restore Your Soul


“He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters; he restores my soul.”
Psalm 23:2-3a



Seasons of weariness are coming. There’s no guarantee that God will shield us from hard times, from weakness, and from souls that desperately need restoration. While we can anticipate draining, difficult seasons, we are assured that God will restore us.

Are we prepared to receive the restoration that comes from God?

Restoration may look like stopping, lying down, and seeking places of peace and stillness. Perhaps we will resist God’s restoration to the point that he will “make” us lie down.

Finding God’s rest takes faith, trusting that God can lead us and sustain us, especially when we stop trying to maintain control. May we have eyes to see the gentle hand of God leading us to restoration.



Why have you resisted restoration?

When has your soul grown weary lately?

What does it look like to trust God with restoring your soul today?
