God is our refuge. He is their help and shield. He gently leads the nursing ewes. Yet the wind will carry off all of them, a breath will take them away.
Finding Safe Pasture
But he who seeks refuge in Me will inherit the land and possess My holy mountain. They cannot fend for themselves; if they ever find themselves separated from the directing voice of their shepherd, they are completely lost.
And the most important task of the shepherd is to lead a flock of sheep to green pastures where they may safely graze. Sheep literally feed on the faithfulness of their shepherds, but this feeding is facilitated by the fact that they trust the voices of their shepherds more than they trust their own understanding, and so they go wherever the shepherd leads. Often when shepherds led their flocks out in search of greener pastures, there were threats of wild animals and bandits to contend with.
The sheep were oblivious to such threats because it was the job of the shepherd to deal with them.
“Enjoying Safe Pasture”
The shepherd lived in constant alert; the sheep lived in constant peace. And this is what our walk with God is supposed to look like.

There is a difference between our position and our experience. Positionally, we are seated with Christ in heavenly places far above all powers and principalities and dominion and might and every name that is named, both in this age and that which is to come.
Safe Pasture - Benjamin Israel Robinson
But for some reason this truth is experientially elusive. Experientially, we seem to be seated somewhere beneath the bake sale, rush hour traffic, and the rent! We do not see the reality of our place of exaltation in Christ on a daily basis.
