What is it about Psalm 23 and its writer that minister to us? Whether we live in green pastures and waters of rest; or find ourselves in the valley of the shadow of death; we all can relate to the song of this sling hurling ancient shepherd boy who cried a lot and whose songs could soothe a crazed king. David; the only person in the Bible called a man after God’s own heart; inspires us with his vulnerability and his yearning for intimacy with God. Each of us; in our own broken way; yearns for such an intimacy with God. So join the author in exploring how a man like David—who was definitely human; definitely a sinner; definitely broken—could be viewed by an all-knowing God as a man after His own heart. “But God removed Saul and replaced him with David; a man about whom God said; ‘I have found David son of Jesse; a man after my own heart” (Acts 13:22 NLT).
