Psalm 23 (28 July 2020)

Morning Encounter:


You let me rest in fields of green grass. You lead me to streams of peaceful water, and you refresh my life.

(Psalm 23.2-3)


An important part of a shepherd’s role, was to consider provision of food, water and places to rest. This part of the Psalm can refer to sheep that need retrieving because they are lost or reviving because they are tired. God is committed to restoring and renewing us.


Where can you find a place of rest today? Jesus was incredibly busy, but took time out to be alone with his Father. Where and when can you do this today?

Midday Meditation:

Lord, we do not know what today or this week may bring, but you do. We rest in your plan and in your goodness. Help us surrender control to you rather than trying to take it into our own hands. Amen.

Evening Reflection:

Our Father,
Thank you for the rest you can bring. Help us remember that true rest for our souls is only found with you. Often times we are too busy. Help us slow down and give our souls time to rest. Amen.
