Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 95:1-6. In Psalm 95 the Psalmist reminds us to sing to the Lord. He encourages us to make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. He tells us to come before His presence with thanksgiving.
When we hear the word “Thanksgiving,” we may think of the day in November when we in North America come together to celebrate with our families. In this instance it is a time of giving thanks to God for who He is and all He has done for us.
There are many ways we can give thanks to the LORD. We can sing praises to Him. We can play an instrument with songs of praise. We can read His Word and recite Scripture to Him. We can pray and thank Him for who He is and all He does. What are some other ways you may give thanks to God?
Why should we come before His presence with thanksgiving? The Lord is a great God and King. He is above all other gods. He is the creator of the earth. He made the seas and the dry land. He also created man in His own image. He is the rock of our salvation. He provided a way of forgiveness for us. Let’s sing praises to Him and worship Him. Let’s bow down before Him and honor Him. Let’s come into His presence with thanksgiving showing Him the gratitude that we have in our hearts for who He is and all He has done for us.
Daily Bible Reading:
1 O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.
3 For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
4 In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also.
5 The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.
6 O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.
Things to think about:
- How can we show our gratitude to the LORD?
- In what ways do you praise the LORD?
- What are some things for which we can thank God?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank You LORD, for You are the creator of the earth and all that is in it. You are a great God and King above all gods. You are our maker. You are the rock of our salvation. Help us to come before You with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto You with psalms and hymns of praise. We love You, LORD. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

About the book:
The Book of Psalms: Part 4 Chapters 91-118 by Deborah H. Bateman is the 29th book in the Daily Bible Reading Series. The book of Psalms contains 150 chapters. Deborah divided The Book of Psalms into five books to make it easier to read and study. Each book contains approximately thirty chapters from the book of Psalms.
Psalm 119 has already been published in a book about it called: Psalm 119: Thy Word is a Lamp unto My Feet. The book of Psalms is one of Deborah’s favorite books of the Bible. It is a great book to read if you’re ever feeling down or need to renew your relationship with Christ. King David went through a lot of tough times in his lifetime, but he loved God and trusted God to protect him from his enemies.
The book of Psalms was written by various people. About half of it was attributed to King David, whether they were written by David or for David is questioned by some biblical scholars. Some of the Psalms were written by Asaph and some say they were written for the sons of Korah and even Moses and Solomon were writers of the Psalms. The Psalms consists of poetry that was primarily meant to be used as songs of praise to the Lord.
The Book of Psalms: Part 4 Chapters 91-118 contains thirty-six Daily Bible Reading Lessons. Each lesson contains a brief commentary by the author, the Daily Bible Reading Scriptures, a few questions for contemplation or discussion, and a prayer of the day. It is a great Bible study for individuals or group studies.
