When God Becomes Personal

Psalm 23 (A Psalm of David)
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
(TRANSITION- A Change in Intimacy in the Relationship Occurs)
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. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 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.

Notice how David’s walk with God changed because of his walk through the valley of the shadow of death. Instead of having a relationship in which he talked about God, he had a relationship in which he talked to God. His focus changed.

Please look and ponder this Psalm. What do you see in the passage that we sometimes miss because it is so familiar to us?
