I grew up hearing this word from parents, guidance, elderly ones and even my mate too.
I kept wondering, what is this Greener Pasture this people are saying, all about?
What is this thing, they meant by Greener Pasture?
Then I was told, as my curiosity grew, that this is where you earn amazingly for a better living.
I’m not talking dictionary here and I don’t want us to even take a look at the dictionary so we can have a grounded and better understanding of this Study.
Perhaps, I have seen people especially young ones and matured men and women travelling overseas and most often, I hear words like they do say and people too, who are advanced in age and knowledge that, they are looking for a Greener pastures, a better living per se, (as I later got to know).
Wow! That’s a great move, I knew. It’s okay to hustle and become great. It’s okay, to stay up and look out for something good to do for a better living.
But, I came also to personally understand that Greener pastures as there migration suggested, is not what you do actually but the location or destination you go to do that.
This is my discovery and just follow me carefully through this study. You’ll surely be blessed.
Powerfully, as I searched the Scriptures and by divine illumination into this knowledge I’m about sharing now, I came to understand that this system is not just ordinary or common. It has a supernatural origin. The system is also tied with what we can find in our kingdom…. The kingdom of God.
God blesses and establish Men not in all places, I discovered.
Often, just like in the case of Abraham, whom God told to leave his mother and father, loved ones and friends to a land, he’ll show him… For that was were his blessings for him was domiciled – the land of Cannan.
Also, Joseph had to leave his father’s land to Egypt though through hard circumstances, so God can enthrone or establish him as king, as he was destined. Egypt was his Greener pasture.
What about Daniel, the captive in the land of Babylon who came up to later become one among the rulers of the land – a foreign land, where he should serve and remain a slave, like others.
That’s the system of God, God shift men to the location where there are meant to be, so as to be manifested and reign as destined. Hope, you got me right… The location not any or every location.
Now let’s take a look at the Scripture,
Psalms 23:1, “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
Psalms 23:2, “He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
Can you see that, “He maketh me to lie down in green pastures. This is powerful.
Remember, this is God speaking here through the Psalmist. The Bible says, He maketh me… Who makes – God.
However, it’s also important you note this, you don’t lie down on a skill if you think your skill or what you or one do, is the Greener pasture or what it is meant to be.
Perhaps, one can only lie down on the ground or the land.
Those days, as you will discover, when you study the old testaments, that often they lie plain on the earth, using stones for pillows and just mindlessly sleep off, not minding the unforseen dangers.
Alright, now we have established that, firstly, Greener pasture is a location or a place and secondly, only God can get a there man.
Believers, it’s high time, we knew this truth and start doing it right and not the world system or conventional way of doing it, if the right result will be established.
Wow! American is a nice country, they have this, they have that and everyone is now moving over there for a better living.
Ooh… Dubia has jobs opportunities and better chance of survival. Everyone wants to move-in there and then including you too – A believer… Hmm.
But the Bible made us know;
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
Believers, listen to me, that’s why people get there and still frustrated. Get there and come back with nothing to show forth. Go there and start messing up, just to make it and put shame away.
However, We need to start doing it right. They said, but what is God saying, I ask you? That it work out for someone, doesn’t mean it’ll work out for you, be guided. Our destined are unique and different too.
God knows you and knows your route. Your destination can be to stay here in Nigeria and you’re packing to move to America or Canada or you’re destined to move out of Nigeria while you have decided to reside here in Nigeria. These are errors.
If you’re doing otherwise, know this, you’re on you own and will bear the consequences of the outcome.
Hmm… It can be to move into a given rejected Rural area and reside and then overwhelming doors of abudance will be opened for you and you’ll travelling to Abuja or Lagos, big cities, because you heard these are big cities… Hmm.
Why then do God gave us an hearing ears?
Isaiah 30:21, “And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk.
Why do the Bible advices us to make inquires.
Jeremiah 33:3, “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
Your Greener Pastures is where your God had willed for your satisfaction, not men or your own definition.
Maybe, you’re on the wrong route now and just don’t know what next to do, however, confused.
Go to God in prayers sincerely. In that hard and terrible city can be where God wants you to stay and dominate.
The location is not the factor, his will is.
Dangote is the richest man in African and ranking in the world also. Do you know, he’s here with us in Nigeria, he’s not leaving or doing business abroad. He started here and stayed here.
Mind you, that doesn’t mean you are not permitted to move round the world. You can, as the Lord wills.
All I’m saying is that you have a primary location for your manifestation however, there can be secondary, as God permits.
Go to God with sincerity of heart and purpose and let him, lie you in your green pasture.
Your Greener Pasture can be discovered in the secret place. Men of prayer are men with directions. Don’t move, without inquiring. It’s God that makes men lie down.
Pray now, oh Lord show me your direction for my manifestation.
Thanks for reading. I pray that God will grant you understanding in Jesus name.
