It is always necessary to download a shader that is compatible with the specs of your device and if you download some shader that has high graphics and your device doesn’t support it then it may crash or lag.
Always verify the shader version. It means if you have 1.16 mc version and the shader is just for 1.14 then it will not work for you.

It is only because of your device and if you are facing this problem then you should firstly understand that a shader may have High graphics and High performance consumption.
So, if you use a shader which is not supported by your device then you can’t use that shader, in that case you should go for a new one.
