Psalm 23:5 “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows”.
After leading the sheep through the dark valleys, the shepherd would then bring the sheep to the flat tablelands to rest easy and to be healed of their hurts. The shepherd would examine the sheep as they entered the fold, to be sure none of them were bruised, injured or sick.
To the hurts he applied soothing oil, and for the thirsty he had his large two handled cup filled with water. He would also apply the oil to the sheep to help keep the flies and insects away. The sheep knew they were safe and they could sleep without fear.
Allowing the Good Shepherd to shepherd you makes good sense.
Are you resting easy?
