Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 107:32-43. The Psalmist reminds us to exalt and praise the LORD in the congregation and assemblies of elders. What does the word “exalt” mean? Some of the words we may use to describe the word exalt are: to lift up, magnify, or glorify.
The Psalmist reminds us of God’s awesome power. God has the power to turn rivers into a wilderness and streams into dry ground, or vice versa. He can change a fruitful land into barren land. He causes the hungry to dwell there so they can plant crops and vineyards and watch His blessings cause food to grow and increase. He blesses the people and their cattle.
The people may go through seasons of being diminished and brought low by oppression, affliction, and sorrow. Have you ever noticed this in your own life cycle? You may go through times of everything going great. Then, you may have other times when sorrow and pain are prevalent in your life.
God pours contempt on princes and makes them to wander in the wilderness. He sets the poor on high and causes them to multiply and make families. The righteous see the works of the LORD and rejoice. Those who are wise will observe the ways of the LORD and understand His loving-kindness. What amazes you about the way the LORD works?
Daily Bible Reading:
32 Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.
33 He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into dry ground;
34 A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.
35 He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings.
36 And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation;
37 And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase.
38 He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and suffereth not their cattle to decrease.
39 Again, they are minished and brought low through oppression, affliction, and sorrow.
40 He poureth contempt upon princes, and causeth them to wander in the wilderness, where there is no way.
41 Yet setteth he the poor on high from affliction, and maketh him families like a flock.
42 The righteous shall see it, and rejoice: and all iniquity shall stop her mouth.
43 Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the LORD.
Things to think about:
- What are some ways we can exalt the LORD?
- How do you praise the LORD for His wondrous works?
- Have you ever noticed how sometimes the poor are raised up and the wealthy brought low? How does that make you feel or how do you react?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank You for this Scripture in Psalm 107, where the Psalmist reminds us to exalt and worship You. Help us to remember to lift You up not only when we are gathered as a congregation, but in our daily lives. Give us strength and courage during the many seasons of our lives. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

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.
