It is the nature of sheep to be unable to rest, drink, or eat if they are in anxiety, the good shepherd, leads his charge into the center of the sheepfold, so the sheep have the peace they need to eat, drink, and rest.
We follow our Good Shepherd into His protective sheepfold, where our souls find all we need.
Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. 22 For indeed Jews ask for signs, and Greeks search for wisdom; 23 but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block, and to Gentiles foolishness, 24 but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
1 Corinthians 1:20-25
The wisdom of this world tells us we are the result of cosmic lightning, mysterious forces, and luck, none of which bring us to salvation.
We rest in Christ, the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
Glory to God. Our haven of rest is in Him and Him alone.
And since He bids me seek His face,
Believe His Word and trust His grace,
I'll cast on Him my every care,
And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!"
