I will meditate on your majestic,
and your wonderful miracles. (Psalm 145:5 NLT)
Over the years, we have been blessed and inspired by other Christians’ love for God’s Word and desire to grow in faith. Together, we are equipping and encouraging people who love God’s Word so much that they want everyone to have access to it. As we do this, we also continue to allow God’s Word to speak into our own lives and transform us into the likeness of Jesus Christ through the work of his Holy Spirit.
And so, we invite you to take the Psalm 23 Challenge. After reflecting on Psalm 23, your challenge is to answer one or more of the 5 reflection questions below by January 31.
We will write up a compilation of our favourite Psalm 23 Challenge answers next month. This will be an encouragement to all of us, a resource for your own Bible study, and application points for sermons or talks.
Respond in the comments section below. Or if you wish to remain anonymous to others, email your response to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 31.
Are you ready to take the Psalm 23 Challenge?
Step 1 – Read Psalm 23 through slowly in your preferred Bible translation.
Step 2 – Read through Psalm 23 again, this time savoring whatever words or phrases stand out to you. Pause and let these sink in.
Step 3 – Read through Psalm 23 a third time, and remember ways that you have experienced the truth of this passage. Reflect on one or more of the following questions:
- In what ways in your life have you experienced the Lord as your good Shepherd providing everything that you need?
- When in your life have you experienced the Lord restoring your soul as a Shepherd leading you to green pastures and good waters?
- How has the Lord’s presence with you helped you through a dark time?
- In what ways have you experienced the Lord’s goodness and faithful love pursuing you lately?
- How is Psalm 23 as a whole speaking into your life right now and inviting you to live in light of its truths?
To take up the Psalm 23 challenge, write your response to one or more of these reflection questions in the comments below by January 31.
Thank you! We can’t wait to hear your responses and see the ways God’s Word is living and active in our lives!
Love and Hugs,
Graham and Ellie
