Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 75:1-10. Psalm 75 is a Psalm of Asaph. It is a song to the director of music, to the tune of “Do Not Destroy.” Asaph gives thanks to God for His name and His wondrous works. This Psalm is thought to possibly be a speech that was made when David was appointed governor and was then penned by Asaph.
David declared that he would do the job that was appointed for him to do and would judge the matters that were brought before him as governor. David took his duties seriously. He knew that God had allowed him to be placed in a position of authority. He didn’t take the job lightly. He wanted God and the people to know he would do his best to serve those over whom he’d been given authority. David promised to do his duty and judge the people fairly.
God will receive the congregation of the church one day. God will not only welcome us into His kingdom, but we will stand before Him as a righteous judge. Sometimes people only think of God as a loving God. He is a loving God, but He is also the judge of the earth. How do you feel about standing before God as your judge?
He warned the wicked not to lift up their horn against God. He reminded the people that promotion doesn’t come from the east or west, but from God, who exalts some and brings down others. He declared that the horns of the wicked would be cut off and the righteous would be exalted. He proclaimed that he would sing praises to the God of Jacob forever. This meant that he would honor God forever as well. Do you enjoy singing praises to God and honoring Him as your heavenly Father?
Daily Bible Reading:
1 [[To the chief Musician, Altaschith, A Psalm or Song of Asaph.]] Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.
2 When I shall receive the congregation I will judge uprightly.
3 The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I bear up the pillars of it. Selah.
4 I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly: and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn:
5 Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck.
6 For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.
7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.
8 For in the hand of the LORD there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is full of mixture; and he poureth out of the same: but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out, and drink them.
9 But I will declare for ever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10 All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
Things to think about:
- Are you going to be among the righteous whom God exalts or the wicked He cuts off?
- In what ways do you give thanks to God?
- What are some things for which you thank God?
- What are some ways you worship God?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank You for this Scripture in Psalm 75.We give You thanks, dear God, for everything You have provided for us. You are a great God. You are a righteous judge. Help us to repent of our sins and cleanse our hearts so we can be part of the righteous You exalt and not the wicked You cut down. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

About the book:
The Book of Psalms:Part 3 Chapters 61-90 by Deborah H. Bateman is 28th book in the Daily Bible Reading Series. The book of Psalms contains 150 chapters. 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.
The Book of Psalms: Part 3 Chapters 61-90 contains fifty 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.
