Daily Bible Reading “Hear My Voice, O God” (Psalm 64:1-10)

 Psalm 64 1Hear My Voice, O God

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 64:1-10. Psalm 64 is a Psalm of David, to the Chief Musician. David cries out to God to hear his prayer and save his life from fear of the enemy. He asks God to hide him from the lies of the wicked.

David was constantly praying to God for protection from his enemies. David put his faith and hope in God. Do you put your faith and hope in God, as David did?

The wicked get together secretly and conspire to destroy others. They may use such tactics as lies, wickedness, greed, or pure meanness. They may conspire in secret, but God is all knowing. They can’t hide from Him.

God knows the thoughts and intents of our hearts. If we put our hope in other things, they will fail us; only God will protect us to the end.

David set the example by showing us how he talked to God. He poured his heart out to God. He talked to God about whatever was troubling him at the time.

David didn’t try to handle his problems on his own. He leaned on God for help, support, and protection. David knew that as long as he had God on his side he could win the battle.

Even Jesus, when He was facing the enemy, cried out to God for help. Don’t think you have to handle your problems on your own. God loves you and cares for you.

God cares about what you are going through. Turn your life over to Him and ask for His help. God is available day or night to hear your cries. He’s waiting for you to call out to Him.

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Psalm 64:1-10

1 [[To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.]] Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
2 Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity:
3 Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words:
4 That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.
5 They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them?
6 They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.
7 But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.
8 So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves: all that see them shall flee away.
9 And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall wisely consider of his doing.
10 The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.

 

Things to think about:

  • How much time do you spend daily going to God in prayer?
  • How can you put your trust in God to protect you from the enemy?
  • In what ways do you praise God for all He does for you?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for this Scripture in Psalm 64. David shows us that he depends on You to protect him and keep him from the enemy. You are a righteous God, so You won’t tolerate the wickedness of the unrighteous. David communicates with You through prayer. Help us to remember to bring our cares and concerns to You in prayer. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Daily Bible Reading “My Soul Thirsts for Thee” (Psalm 63:1-11)

 psalm 63_1My Soul Thirsts for Thee

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 63:1-11. Psalm 63 is a Psalm of David. It was written when he was in the wilderness of Judah. David declares that he’ll seek God early in the morning because his soul thirsts for God. Have you ever been really thirsty on a hot, dry day? David had a deep longing in his soul to spend time with God. Do you thirst for Him?

David longs to see God’s power and glory. He praises God for His loving kindness. David proclaims that he’ll praise and worship God as long as he lives because his soul is satisfied in God. Not only does David seek God in the morning, but he also meditates on God at night while lying in his bed.

Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night and have trouble falling back to sleep? I find when this happens, if I fix my thoughts on God, start to pray and talk to Him, I will relax and fall back to sleep, because my soul is satisfied.

David loves God. He has been David’s helper. God has protected him from the enemy and kept him close, under the shadow of His wings. David feels safe. David says God holds him up with His right hand.

David speaks of his enemies saying they’ll be destroyed and those who tell lies about him will be stopped. Even among all the threats for his life and the turmoil of being constantly sought by the enemy David declares that he will rejoice in God all the days of his life. Do you rejoice in God regardless of your circumstances?

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Psalm 63:1-11

1 [[A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.]] O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
2 To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
3 Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
4 Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.
5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:
6 When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.
7 Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
8 My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.
9 But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
10 They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for foxes.
11 But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.

 

Things to think about:

  • Does your soul long to spend time with God? How do you satisfy that longing?
  • Do you seek him both in the morning and at night? How can we make a habit of seeking God’s face morning and night?
  • How does spending time with God satisfy the longing in your soul?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

We thank You for this Scripture in Psalm 63. David says he thirsts for You. His soul longs to spend time with You. He seeks You early in the morning and at night. He enjoys spending time with You. Help us to take time out of our busy schedules to spend time with You. Help us to realize there is a longing in our souls that only You can fill. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Daily Bible Reading “God is My Rock and My Salvation” (Psalm 62:1-12)

Psalm 62God is My Rock and My Salvation

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 62:1-12. Psalm 62 is a Psalm of David to the Chief Musician. David says his soul waits on God, from Him comes his salvation.

David declares that God is the rock of his strength. God is his salvation. God is his glory. God is his refuge, and his defense, therefore he will not be moved.

David says his soul waits on the LORD, because his expectation is from Him. David encourages us to put our trust in God at all times. He tells us to pour our hearts out to God. He reminds us that God is our refuge.

David warns us about trusting in our wealth. He tells us that power belongs to God. David reminds us that God is a merciful God and rewards every man according to his work.

When I used to work in the corporate world I trusted more in my job to supply my needs than God. When I lost my job, I learned to trust God more to supply my needs. I learned that God could supply my needs any way He chooses. For the most part, he has used my husband to supply my needs since that time. I had to learn to accept that as God’s provision for me. In what ways does God supply your needs?

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Psalm 62:1-12

1 [[To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun, A Psalm of David.]] Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.
2 He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.
3 How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence.
4 They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah.
5 My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.
6 He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved.
7 In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.
8 Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.
9 Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity.
10 Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
11 God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.
12 Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.

 

Things to think about:

  • In what ways is God your refuge and your defense?
  • How can we learn to trust in God at all times?
  • Have you accepted God as your rock and your salvation as David did? If so, describe your experience.

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

We thank You for this Scripture in Psalm 62. You are our rock and our salvation. You are our refuge and our defense. You are a merciful God and You love us. Help us to trust in You at all times. Help us to pour our hearts out to You in prayer knowing that You will hear and answer our prayers. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Daily Bible Reading “Lead Me to the Rock” (Psalm 61:1-8)

 Psalm 61 2Lead Me to the Rock

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 61:1-8.  Psalm 61 is a Psalm of David to the Chief Musician. David cries out to God to hear his prayer. David says when his heart is overwhelmed he will cry out to God to lead him to the rock. What do you do when your heart is overwhelmed?

What are some words that you would use to describe the word “rock”? A rock is a solid mass. A large rock may be called a boulder. Smaller rocks may be considered as stones. Some rocks may be sharp and in biblical times may have been used to make weapons. In the Scriptures the word “rock” may be a reference to strength, to deity, to God, the mighty one.

Figuratively speaking the word “rock” may symbolize a refuge. As we think of all the meanings of the word “rock” and compare them to God we can visualize God as being our rock, our strength, a large boulder to lean or rest upon.

Deuteronomy 32:4 describes God as the Rock, “He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.”

First Samuel 2:2 tells us that there is no rock like our God. “There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God.”

David spoke of the LORD as his rock when God delivered him from his enemies in 2 Samuel 22:2-3, “And he said, The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence.”

David declares that God is his shelter, his strong tower from the enemy. He proclaims that he will abide in God’s tabernacle, and be safe under the wings of God.

David knows that God has heard his prayers and will answer his cry. He trusted God to prolong his life and to give him the heritage of those who fear God. David promises to praise God forever and perform his vows daily to God. Do you have a habit of praising and worshiping God on a daily basis?

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Psalm 61:1-8

1 [[To the chief Musician upon Neginah, [A Psalm] of David.]] Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3 For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.
4 I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.
5 For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name.
6 Thou wilt prolong the king’s life: and his years as many generations.
7 He shall abide before God for ever: O prepare mercy and truth, which may preserve him.
8 So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.

 

Things to think about:

  • In what ways do you trust in God’s mercy and truth?
  • In what ways do you think of God as your rock?
  • How do you look to God as a shelter from the enemy?
  • In what ways do you give God praise daily?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

We thank You for this Scripture in Psalm 61. We see in this Scripture that David had complete faith and trust in You. He trusted in Your mercy and truth to preserve and prolong his life. He set the example for us to praise and worship You daily, no matter what is going on in our lives. Help us to follow the example and praise and worship you as David did. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Daily Bible Reading “Vain is the Help of Man” (Psalm 60:1-12)

Psalm 60 If God is for usVain is the Help of Man

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 60:1-12. Psalm 60 is a Psalm of David to the Chief Musician. It was meant to be played on the Shushaneduth, to the tune of “The Lily of the Covenant.” It was to be used as a teaching tool. This psalm was written when David fought with Aramnaharaim and Aramzobah, and Joab, David’s general, returned and smote twelve thousand Edomites in the valley of salt. The meaning of Joab’s name is “Jehovah is father.” When we make God our father, we can win in any battle that faces us.

David cried out to God, “O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us, thou hast been displeased; O turn thyself to us again.” In verses 2-4 David describes what they had been through. It seems like he is describing an earthquake. He then pleads to God to help him win the battle.

Sometimes we put our trust and faith in men and they fail us. David had strong armies of men to fight with, but he knew he needed God to be on his side and give him favor in the midst of the battle. Do you call on God to help you in the battles of life?

Daily Bible Reading:

Psalm 60:1-12

1 [[To the Chief Musician upon Shushaneduth, Michtam of David, to teach; when he strove with Aramnaharaim and with Aramzobah, when Joab returned, and smote of Edom in the valley of salt twelve thousand.]] O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us, thou hast been displeased; O turn thyself to us again.
2 Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it: heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.
3 Thou hast shewed thy people hard things: thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment.
4 Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.
5 That thy beloved may be delivered; save with thy right hand, and hear me.
6 God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
7 Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver;
8 Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe: Philistia, triumph thou because of me.
9 Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?
10 Wilt not thou, O God, which hadst cast us off? and thou, O God, which didst not go out with our armies?
11 Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.
12 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.

 

Things to think about:

  • In what ways do you lean on God to lead you in life?
  • Have you ever felt like God turned His back on you? If so, describe the situation.
  • Was it God who turned His back on you or did you lose fellowship with God?
  • Why should we repent and ask God to forgive us and return His favor to us?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for this Scripture in Psalm 60. Thank You for the example of David who shows us even people who are strong and mighty need Your help. Help us not to put our faith and trust in men, but in You, God. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
