Can I Hear God Concerning My Relationship?

We’ll take a look at Psalm 23 this morning.

 
1. It is personal
 
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 you enjoy when you have a personal relationship with God, not just by being a member of a church.
 
The first thing you need to do then is to develop a conscious relationship with God, who is your shepherd.
 
No wonder Jesus Christ said:
 
John 10:14
I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
 
There must of necessity be a personal knowing, a connectedness, a relationship with God upon which every successful courtship and marriage will stand.
 
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 gallivanting 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, sometime 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 46:10
Be 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 stays with the shepherd is even more powerful than the lion!
 
Stay obedient to Him!
 
3. God speaks in the stillness
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
 
The waters represent the word of the living God. He would lead you by His word in your heart. He would not necessarily speak to you through thunder and lightening neither will He slap you to get your attention, He leads you gently and will never force you to do anything.
 
He would not speak outside His word. If you cannot hear Him, then you have not been beside the still waters. Maybe, it has been long since you opened your Bible.
 
The still waters is not in the romantic soap operas or in the football matches. It is not in Time Magazine neither is it in philosophical novels. Not even in John Grisham. It is not i movies. If that is all you spend your time doing at the expense of God’s word, you will have a hard time knowing His voice.
 
You have to consciously dedicate some time for Him, in the mornings, afternoons or nights.
 
You don’t need any pastor or prophet to help you see something. You can see for your self and you are the prophet of your own life.
 
Your pastor is to teach and guide you, not give you direction! Your pastor is not to choose a spouse for you; he can give suggestions though.
 
Direction only comes beside the still waters, in God’s word. When you want to hear Him clearly, study His word dearly!
 
Before being caught up in love by that lover, be caught up in His word first.
