Psalm 23:1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
Psalm 23:2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
Psalm 23:3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Psalm 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Psalm 23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Psalm 23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
How do you read this Psalm? How do you read the Bible? How do you consider God?
When you read, “The Lord is my shepherd”, do you think, “Well, where is he?” Thus calling God into question for not being what and where you would have him to be.
Or do you think, “Is he my shepherd?” Calling yourself into question and asking, “Am I really allowing him to lead me?”
The real question is, “Do I want God to be what I want him to be, or am I striving to be what he wants me to be?”
