SETTLED IN PASTURES

20th June 2023

Scripture Reading: PSALMS 23: 1-6

Focus

“He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.” (Psalm 23: 2)

Our Focal Scripture speaks of that moment when the psalmist spoke about how the Lord makes him to lie down in green pastures. To lie down is to relax. So the psalmist affirmed that the Lord makes him to lie down in green pastures. There may be situations that could have made the sheep to be agitated or tensed up in the green pastures, but the psalmist affirmed that the Shepherd makes him to stay relaxed in his green pastures.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: you will be relaxed in your green pastures. You will be relaxed in your abundance. You will be relaxed in your increase. You will be relaxed in your congratulations. You will be relaxed in the new doors and gates that God is opening unto you. You will be relaxed in the good news that God is making happen for you. You will be relaxed in the new territories that God is giving to you. You will relax in your pasture.

The battles that cause men to abandon their green pastures will not come your way. It will never be said that your green pasture became a crown of thorns. It will never be said that the good things that God caused to come your way later turned against you. It will never be said that you received the blessings of the Lord and same blessings swallowed you. It will never be said that your green pastures became your nemesis.

Today, I decree, you will be relaxed in every pasture that God has brought your way. You will be comfortable in your increase. You will be settled in your promotion. You will enjoy your new levels. You will not be counted amongst them who were swallowed in their pasture. You will not be counted amongst those whose resources became their nemesis. You will not be counted amongst those whose miracles took them down.

Every enemy that has arisen to unsettle you in your green pastures is not of God, and therefore lacks the mandate to remain. As surely as the Lord lives, you will be settled in your green pastures.

Declaration

I am settled in my green pastures, in Jesus’ name!
