In our Focal Scripture, the psalmist described the Lord as his Shepherd. The psalmist didn’t begin by speaking of what the Shepherd is able to provide. He began by speaking of what the Shepherd is to him. He identified the Shepherd as his Lord. The psalmist first acknowledged the Lordship of the One who is his Shepherd. Before speaking of what the Lord could do for him, he spoke of the fact that he had the Lord over him.
Notice that whilst making mention of Lordship, the psalmist made mention of the role of the Shepherd. In speaking of the Lord, the psalmist began speaking of how the same Lord functions as his Shepherd. The fate, destiny, life, etc. of the sheep was hinged on the Lord. There were benefits for the psalmist because of the Lord. The psalmist inferred that there is something for him in the Lord. The psalmist alluded to benefits from the Lord.
