Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 136:10-16. This Scripture talks about God’s judgment on Egypt and His provision and protection for the children of Israel.
We’re reminded how He brought the children of Israel out of Egypt and established them as His people. This refers back to Exodus 20:2 which says, “I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.”
It also talks about God’s judgment and the miracle He performed by dividing the Red Sea and letting the children of Israel pass through it. Exodus 14:16 tells us, “But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.”
He then overthrew Pharaoh and his armies with the same waters of the Red Sea as mentioned in Exodus 3-6, “The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name. Pharaoh’s chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea.
The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone. Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.”
This Scripture also reminds us of how God led the children of Israel through the wilderness. Exodus 13:18, “But God led the people about, through the way of the wilderness of the Red sea: and the children of Israel went up harnessed out of the land of Egypt.”
In this Scripture we are reminded of God’s provision and His protection for His children. Sometimes the battles of life are too big for us to fight alone. Do you trust God to provide for you and protect you?
Daily Bible Reading:
10 To him that smote Egypt in their firstborn: for his mercy endureth for ever:
11 And brought out Israel from among them: for his mercy endureth for ever:
12 With a strong hand, and with a stretched out arm: for his mercy endureth for ever.
13 To him which divided the Red sea into parts: for his mercy endureth for ever:
14 And made Israel to pass through the midst of it: for his mercy endureth for ever:
15 But overthrew Pharaoh and his host in the Red sea: for his mercy endureth for ever.
16 To him which led his people through the wilderness: for his mercy endureth for ever.
Things to think about:
- Why were the firstborn of Egypt smote, or struck by God?
- Why were the children of Israel brought out of Egypt?
- Can you imagine being there when God parted the Red Sea?

Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank You for this Scripture from Psalm 136. We see Your mercy throughout the Bible for Your children, but we also see Your judgment on their enemies. Help us to trust in Your provision and protection in our lives. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
