Today's Word with Joel & Victoria

He Restores Your Soul


“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul…”
(Psalm 23:1–3, NASB)


God wants to restore your soul. Your soul is your mind, your will and your emotions. You are a three-part being: you have a spirit — that’s the part of you that lives for eternity, you have a soul, and you have your body while you’re here on earth. Your soul is where the enemy tries to wound you and hold you back. Your soul is where you may have brokenness from the past, or hurts and disappointments. But when God restores your soul, He brings His healing power to those broken places. He makes you whole again. When God restores you, He makes you better off than you were before!

Notice the picture painted in this verse: He leads us beside quiet waters. He makes us lie down in green pastures. This is a picture of rest. When we are resting in Him, He is able to do a work in our lives. He is able to bring that restoration. Don’t let the busyness of life keep you going so fast that you don’t stop and rest. Take time to be still before the Lord and meditate on His Word. Let Him restore and heal your soul so you can live the life of victory God has prepared for you!


“Father, thank You for another day to praise You. Thank You for Your plan to lead me into rest so that You can restore my soul. I surrender my brokenness to You and open my heart to receive Your healing in every area of my life today in Jesus’ name. Amen”
