Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 89:33-41. The Psalmist reminds God of His promises to David. God promised to be faithful to David and show His loving-kindness toward him. He promised not to break His covenant with David. God promised His seed to endure forever.
All these promises God made to David, but the Psalmist was concerned about the trouble David was going through at the time. He couldn’t understand why David seemed to be cast away from God. The Psalmist questions why God had broken His covenant with David. Why has David become a reproach to his neighbors? There were times in David’s life when he was disobedient to God and it caused turmoil in his life.
Remember the Psalmist doesn’t know what we know today, that Jesus came out of the seed of David, which means David’s seed will last forever as God promised. Jesus sits on the right hand of God on His throne. We may fail God, but God’s promises will never fail. He is faithful.
Daily Bible Reading:
33 Nevertheless my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail.
34 My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.
35 Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David.
36 His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me.
37 It shall be established for ever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven. Selah.
38 But thou hast cast off and abhorred, thou hast been wroth with thine anointed.
39 Thou hast made void the covenant of thy servant: thou hast profaned his crown by casting it to the ground.
40 Thou hast broken down all his hedges; thou hast brought his strong holds to ruin.
41 All that pass by the way spoil him: he is a reproach to his neighbours.
Things to think about:
- What are some of the promises of God we can hold onto?
- Why does the Psalmist think God has turned His back on David and forsaken His promises to him?
- What makes you believe God is faithful?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank You for this Scripture in Psalm 89, where the Psalmist reminds us of Your promises to David. Help us to know that Your promises stand. We can count on You to be faithful to us. Help us to be obedient and stand by our promises to You. Forgive us of the times we have failed You. 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.
