God desires an up-close and personal relationship with us. Do you believe that? Do you live like that is the truth, or are you more apt to live like God sits apart, looking down from above – a kind observer maybe? This week, take time to examine scripture that details God’s love and desire to have a real relationship with you – not from afar, but side by side – right where you are. Journal, meditate and pray about what God reveals to you in His Word this week.
God, my shepherd!
I don’t need a thing.
You have bedded me down in lush meadows,
you find me quiet pools to drink from.
True to your word,
you let me catch my breath
and send me in the right direction.
Even when the way goes through
I’m not afraid
when you walk at my side.
Your trusty shepherd’s crook
makes me feel secure.
You serve me a six-course dinner
right in front of my enemies.
You revive my drooping head;
my cup brims with blessing.
Your beauty and love chase after me
every day of my life.
I’m back home in the house of God
for the rest of my life.
