Psalm 23:2 “He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters.”
The Scene: A peaceful, restful, eye pleasing greenery–a landscape scene: for the Christian, green is a sign of life and a color that is restful to the eye (with the birds nearby; a sign of the Holy Trinity.)
Psalm 52:8 “But I am like a green olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever.”
So, when life becomes stressful to the mind and heart, call on the Holy Spirit to show the way out–to peace, through the green valley.
Psalm4:8 “I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.”
Romans 8:6-9 “The mind of the sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace; the sinful mind is hostile to God. It does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those controlled by the sinful nature cannot please God. You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ.”
