Devotional Guide

Preparation

  1. Read Psalm 23.
  2. Read Psalm 23 again and pay attention to words and phrases that stand out to you.
  3. Pray, thanking God for being a shepherd to you; then, ask God to open your heart and mind to what He wants to teach you (finish your reflection time by coming back to this prayer).

Reflection Questions

  1. What words or phrases stand out to you in this psalm (write them down)?
  2. In what ways has God provided for you (“he makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters”)?
  3. In what ways does God “restore” your soul?
  4. In what ways has God been present to you during times of difficulty (vs. 4-5)?
  5. In what ways have you experienced the goodness and mercy of God?
  6. In what ways does God’s promise of eternity (v. 6) help you with daily living?
