Today's reading: Psalm 23:1-6
Psalm 23 is a cherished, well-known and often-quoted Psalm. 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. Today the absolutely personal nature of verse 1 touched my heart.
"The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want." (emphasis mine)
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 mean to you? What does God taking a personal interest in you reveal about God's heart and love for you? Tami
