Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Genesis 1:20-23. On the fifth day of creation, God said, “Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.”
God created all the fish of the sea and every living thing that moves, with which the waters swarmed, according to their kind. He also created every flying bird according to its kind. God beheld at His creation and saw that it was good.
God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.”
The evening and morning were the fifth day.
Think about all the different kinds of fish and sea creatures that exist. They all are different sizes and shapes.There is nothing more majestic than watching a dolphin spring up out of the ocean.
Then, consider all the different kinds of birds that fly all around the earth. I love to sit outside and listen to sweet music of the birds as they sing. God created them all!
Psalm 104:24-25 says, “O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches. So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.”
Daily Bible Reading:
20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
Things to think about:
- What is your favorite sea creature?
- What is your favorite bird?
- Can you imagine God speaking all these things into existence?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
As we read this passage and consider the awesome creations that You made. When we consider all the fish and birds that You created we are overwhelmed with Your creativity. Help us to be grateful for all your creatures. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

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.
This part of the book of Psalms contains fifteen of the Songs of degrees. They were the songs or chants that the people of Israel sang as they journeyed to Jerusalem. It also contains some of the Psalms of David.
