Here are a few things to note from Psalm 23

1. He is personally interested in you

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

There is something personal about that. “The Lord is my…” It didn’t say the Lord is “our shepherd.”

“He is my….”

He will attend to me personally. He does not deal with me generally. Only God can do that. He attends to billions of people with billions of requests in billions of places at the same time without missing a beat or wiping sweat off His brow. He doesn’t make mistakes. He would not mistakenly give me a bicycle when my request was for a car.

The shepherding grace of God then is what I enjoy when I have a personal relationship with God, not just by being a member of a church.

The first thing I need to do then is to develop a conscious relationship with God, who is my shepherd.

No wonder Jesus Christ said:

I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.

John 10:14

There must of necessity be a personal knowing, a connectedness, a relationship with God upon which every successful courtship and marriage will stand.

He will personally attend specifically to my marital needs. He knows who I am, who I need, and who I don’t need!

He is my shepherd!

2. He wants your submission and obedience

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:

He wants you to lie down and feed on His Word, and He doesn’t want you running around all over the place. Adam couldn’t get a wife until He slept. Some of us are just too awake. Sometimes, you just need to be still and know that He is God and that He is your shepherd.

It is not only your toasting skill that will get you a spouse, sometimes it is just your ability to be still and follow His direction. It is not all about the dressing and the perfumes alone, there is a place for His fragrance which comes by His favour!

Psalm 46:10Be still, and know that I am God:

Message translations says, “Step out of the traffic…”

That is why He calls you a sheep, even though you might not like that particular creature. You probably prefer a lion. But the sheep actually shows the true vulnerability of the Homo-Sapien. However, the sheep that stay with the shepherd is even more powerful than the lion!

Stay obedient to Him!

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want a good spouse

Lord, guide me with your shepherding grace to find the right spouse.

Psalm 46:11The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.
