Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 136:17-26. This Scripture talks about how God slew some of the most powerful and well known kings, which refers to Deuteronomy 1:4, “After he had slain Sihon the king of the Amorites, which dwelt in Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, which dwelt at Astaroth in Edrei.”
Then, He gave the land of the enemy to Israel as a heritage. God redeemed them from their enemies and they declared, “His mercy endures forever.” The Psalmist also talks about God providing food for all beings and gives thanks to the God of heaven. Not only does God provide for His children, but He provides for the beast of the field, the foul of the air, and every living creature on the earth.
Whether we look at His creation, His protection, and His provision for His people, or His judgment on the enemies of His people, we see God’s strong mighty power and we are reminded, “His mercy endures forever.”
