10 Things God does in Psalm 23

Praise is not always the easiest thing to do. In fact, sometimes it’s difficult. Very difficult.

10 Things God does is Psalm 23

The struggles of this life tell me lies and cause me to forget the things that God does for me. I become consumed by my own battles and God’s activity is overlooked. It’s when I become nearsighted that praise is the most difficult. I need a jump start and swift reminder of all the things that God is doing for me.

Aside from John 3:16, Psalm 23 is probably one of the most recognized passages in the Bible. It’s often quoted at funerals but the activity of God is for us, the living. When weariness, struggles, and forgetfulness cause me to lose sight of God’s actions, I turn back to these six verses for a reminder of the things I should be praising God for.
