More than likely you had someone in your life rather it was a parent or a grandparent that you thought hung the moon. If they spoke you listened because they spoke with authority. They taught us things, gardening, working on cars, sewing, etc… Just as they taught us to help us in life, so does God. He tries to teach us everyday through His word. How to handle our children, marriage, jobs, our finances. He wants us to know how to be triumphant through Him.
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. Psalm 23:1
