Psalm 23:1-3 AMP … THE LORD is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall not lack. He makes me lie down in [fresh, tender] green pastures; He leads me beside the still and restful waters. He refreshes and restores my life (my self);
From Barnes’ Notes on the Bible
He leadeth me beside the still waters – Margin, “waters of quietness.” Not stagnant waters, but waters not tempestuous and stormy; waters so calm, gentle, and still, as to suggest the idea of repose, and such as prompt to repose. As applied to the people of God, this denotes the calmness – the peace – the repose of the soul, when salvation flows as in a gently running stream; when there is no apprehension of want; when the heart is at; peace with God.From NetBible Ps 23:2still waters = waters of quietness, peaceful streams, refreshing waters => refreshment from God who is the source of living waters -Jer2:13
From NetBible Ps 23:3
NKJ … He restores my soul
NLT … He renews my strength
BBE … He gives new life to my soul
AMP …He refreshes and restores my life (my self)

Peace like a river flows when you follow His lead.
