It's Personal

Today's Scripture

"The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need." - Psalm 23:1 NIV.

Thoughts for Today

Studying the facets of God's character helps us see how he meets human need at the right time and in the right way. He cares for uspersonally. He is Jehovah-rohi: the Lord is my Shepherd. God is our heavenly Father who tends to, watches over, feeds, keeps company with, and is a personal friend.

Many children do not have the benefit of an earthly father who shepherds them with care, security, consistency, gentleness, or as a personal friend. Some children grow into adulthood with this vacuum. The best of earthly fathers cannot provide the gentleness, consistency, or personal friendship our heavenly Father brings.

Consider this...

David wrote Psalm 23. Having a close relationship with his heavenly Father, David sought the heart of God. Psalm 23 describes this picture of God as his shepherd. He related to his heavenly Father in a personal way. "The Lord is my shepherd." My shepherd. David didn't see God as a shepherd or the shepherd. He saw his heavenly father as his personal Shepherd who would provide his needs.

How to you view God? Is he personal to you? Do you trust him to provide your needs?

He loves you personally. He loves you so much, he sent his only Son, Jesus, to die on the cross for your sins so you can be forgiven and have a personal relationship with himforever. He cares about everything that concerns you. He wants to meet your every need. Will you let him?

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, thank you for loving me. I thank you that Jesus died on the cross for me, personally. Please forgive my sins and help me follow you. Help me stop looking at my problems and focus on you, my Shepherd.Help me trust you to meet my needs at the right time in the right way. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen.

Have a Blessed Tuesday and God Bless you.
