Personal God

Today's reading: Psalm 23:1-6

Psalm 23 is a cherished and well-known Psalm that is often quoted. It's a favorite because of its comforting and hope-giving message. I can't tell you how many times I've read this psalm, but today the absolutely personal nature of verse 1 touched my heart.

"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want."

I love that this verse is directed to each of us individually ("my" shepherd; "I" shall not want), which lets me know that God sees and is watching over every detail of my life. Thank you, God!!

What does the Lord being "your" shepherd (verse 1) mean to you? Do you believe that God is interested in you? Tami

The Lord as my Shepherd means to me that He meets all of my needs and more!
I NEED Him! Yes,He is interested in me and everybody!

Tami, I like the personal nature of this whole Psa. 23 and I have put my name where there were pronouns.

Thanks for this thought-provoking and encouraging Bible study!

I have made this psalm my own personal prayer each night.
It reminds me of how blessed I am to belong to him and in his
care through the night. I rest in his peace.
