Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 62:1-12. Psalm 62 is a Psalm of David to the Chief Musician. David says his soul waits on God, from Him comes his salvation.
David declares that God is the rock of his strength. God is his salvation. God is his glory. God is his refuge, and his defense, therefore he will not be moved.
David says his soul waits on the LORD, because his expectation is from Him. David encourages us to put our trust in God at all times. He tells us to pour our hearts out to God. He reminds us that God is our refuge.
David warns us about trusting in our wealth. He tells us that power belongs to God. David reminds us that God is a merciful God and rewards every man according to his work.
When I used to work in the corporate world I trusted more in my job to supply my needs than God. When I lost my job, I learned to trust God more to supply my needs. I learned that God could supply my needs any way He chooses. For the most part, he has used my husband to supply my needs since that time. I had to learn to accept that as God’s provision for me. In what ways does God supply your needs?
Daily Bible Reading:
1 [[To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun, A Psalm of David.]] Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.
2 He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.
3 How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence.
4 They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah.
5 My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.
6 He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved.
7 In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.
8 Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.
9 Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity.
10 Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
11 God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.
12 Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.
Things to think about:
- In what ways is God your refuge and your defense?
- How can we learn to trust in God at all times?
- Have you accepted God as your rock and your salvation as David did? If so, describe your experience.

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 will not be included in The Book of Psalms since Deborah has already published 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.

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.
