Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 102:15-28. Have you ever felt desperate for God to hear and answer your prayer? The Psalmist earlier in the chapter cried out for God to hear his prayer. In this portion of the chapter he declares the greatness of the LORD.
He says the heathen will fear the name of the LORD and all the kings of the earth will fear His glory. When the LORD comes back in all His glory, He will build up Zion. He will remember the prayer of the destitute.
The Psalmist reminds us, this is written for the generation to come. It is a prophetic statement to let us know that the LORD does hear and answer our prayers and He will return one day to take His children home.
The LORD looks down from His sanctuary in heaven and hears the cries of the prisoner. He will come back to proclaim the name of the LORD in Zion. His people will gather in Jerusalem to praise and worship the LORD.
This man is weak in his body and believes he is close to the end of his days. He is begging the LORD to spare his life.
The Psalmist professes the LORD as the creator of the world and that His name will last forever. The name of the LORD will be passed down from generation to generation. It is our duty as believers to make sure that the Word of the LORD is passed down to the next generation.
We need to teach our children and grandchildren about the LORD. Are you doing your part to spread the good news of the Gospel to the next generation? Thank God for those who came before us and sacrificed to make sure we knew about the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our lifetime.
Daily Bible Reading:
15 So the heathen shall fear the name of the LORD, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.
16 When the LORD shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory.
17 He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.
18 This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the LORD.
19 For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the LORD behold the earth;
20 To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death;
21 To declare the name of the LORD in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem;
22 When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve the LORD.
23 He weakened my strength in the way; he shortened my days.
24 I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days: thy years are throughout all generations.
25 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.
26 They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed:
27 But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.
28 The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall be established before thee.
Things to think about:
- In what ways do you show reverence for the name of the LORD?
- In what ways can we prepare for the return of the LORD?
- How do you acknowledge God as being the creator of the world?
- What are some things we can do to make sure future generations have a chance to hear the Gospel?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank You for this Scripture in Psalm 102 in which the Psalmist reminds us of Your greatness and holiness. Help us to acknowledge You as LORD of this earth and as LORD of our lives. Help us to share the Gospel with the next generation. Help us to look forward to Your return. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

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 has already been published in a book 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.
The Book of Psalms: Part 4 Chapters 91-118 contains thirty-six Daily Bible Reading Lessons. 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. It is a great Bible study for individuals or group studies.
