“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want” Psalm 23:1
David knew from a young age that he has been despised and rejected but at the backside of the desert, he began to pursue God.
He committed himself to loving, serving and obeying God. That was why he said in Psalm 23 that “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.” He knew that as long as the shepherd is with the sheep, there can be no need unmet. In verse two he said “He maketh me to lie down in green pastures.” He was saying “I don’t make myself, God makes me and as long as it is God making you, you are made. He also said “He leadeth me beside the still waters” again, as long as God leads you, you remain safe and you can’t miss the way.
Did you notice that when he stopped heeding to God’s leading and started working by his own dictates in verse 4; he began to walk in the valley of shadow of death! Beloved you expose yourself to danger the moment you dump God and you start doing things your own way. Except the Lord builds a house, those who build do it in vain. Your talent, smartness, skills etc are wonderful but when the chips are down, it is what you do with His presence that will sustain you. If there is anything to pursue today, it’s the presence of the shepherd and His ways.
Smith Wigglesworth at the age of fifty told himself if he will ever learn how to read, it will be because of the Bible and nothing else. It produced the presence of God in his life to the extent that we still quote him till today. Today I see a lot of people with heart ache, I see many who are frustrated in life because they do not care about the presence of the shepherd. Like David, make the Lord your shepherd today, listen and yield to Him in all things and you will experience the richness you have always desired for your life.
