Daily Bible Reading “Our God Shall Come” (Psalm 50:1-15)

 Psalm 50 1Our God Shall Come

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 50:1-15. Psalm 50 is a Psalm of Asaph, who was one of the worship leaders in the temple. God is calling everyone on the earth to gather together before Him so He can judge His people. Are you ready for that call?

He is coming back and when He does, He will judge both the living and the dead. He will gather those together who have made a covenant with Him. The heavens will declare His righteousness. God is a righteous judge. He knows everything about us. He knows the thoughts and intentions of our hearts.

“All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all” (Isaiah 53:6).

God says He will not take any of our sacrifices, such as the animals that were sacrificed in the Old Testament. God reminds us that all the animals of the earth belong to Him anyway. God knows the animals like He knows us. God says even if He was hungry He wouldn’t tell us. Everything in this world belongs to God, He created it.

God reminds us to offer thanksgiving to Him. What God wants from us is praise and thanksgiving. God wants us to pay our vows to Him. God wants us to call on Him in the time of trouble. He will deliver us and we will glorify Him.

Do you call on God when you’re in trouble? Some people fast (go without food) and pray for God to deliver them. Have you ever wanted God’s favor in a situation bad enough to fast and pray for it?

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Psalm 50:1-15

1 [[A Psalm of Asaph.]] The mighty God, even the LORD, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.
2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.
3 Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him.
4 He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people.
5 Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.
6 And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself. Selah.
7 Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I am God, even thy God.
8 I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy burnt offerings, to have been continually before me.
9 I will take no bullock out of thy house, nor he goats out of thy folds.
10 For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.
11 I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine.
12 If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.
13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?
14 Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High:
15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

 

Things to think about:

  • Are you ready for the call of God?
  • Is there anything in your life for which you need to ask God to forgive you? If so, what?
  • How much time do you devote to giving God praise and thanksgiving?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for this Scripture in Psalm 50. We thank You that You are a righteous judge. Help us to honor You, praise You, and give thanksgiving to You for who You are. Thank You for loving us and caring about us. Help us to know we can call on You in the day of trouble and You will deliver us. Help us to glorify Your name. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

psalms Part 2-25The Book of Psalms:
Part 2 Chapters 31-60
by Deborah H. Bateman

About the book:

The Book of Psalms: Part 2 Chapters 31-60 by Deborah H. Bateman is 27th 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 will contain 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 2 Chapters 31-60 contains thirty-five 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.

Daily Bible Reading “Wise Women” (Proverbs 14:1-14)

Proverbs 14 1 A Wise Woman Build Her HouseWise Women

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 14:1-14. In this Scripture we are reminded that every wise woman builds her house: but a foolish woman tears hers down. As women we can either build up our house and the people who live in our house or we can tear them down. Many times it is up to the woman to set the tone for the home. Haven’t you heard the saying, “If mama is happy then everybody is happy, and if mama isn’t happy then nobody is happy?”

Many of these Scriptures in the book of Proverbs can teach us how to discern the people we should hang around. It can help us to know who we should choose for our best friends.

Those who walk in uprightness fear the LORD: but those who are perverse in their ways despise him.

A rod of pride is in the mouth of the foolish: but the lips of the wise will preserve them.

Where no oxen are, the crib is clean: but much increase is by the strength of the ox.

A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will tell lies.

A scorner seeks wisdom, and doesn’t find it: but knowledge is easy to those who understand.

Leave the presence of a foolish person, when you don’t  perceive knowledge in their mouth.

The wisdom of the prudent is to understand their way: but the folly of fools is deceit.

Fools mock sin: but the righteous find favor.

The heart knows its own bitterness; and a stranger does not inter-meddle with their joy.

The house of the wicked will be overthrown: but the sanctuary of the upright will flourish.

Verse 12 is one of my favorite verses from this passage of Scripture, “There is a way which seems right to a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” Sometimes we choose ways that seem right to us at the moment, but in the end they lead to destruction. We need to ask God for His leadership, guidance, and direction in our lives. Only He can help us to make the right choices.

Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful; and the end of that mirth is heaviness.

The backslider in heart will be filled with their own ways: and a good person will satisfy themselves.

These Scriptures may also help us to see some of our own short comings. If you notice something in these Scriptures that you need help with, now would be a good time to pray and ask God to forgive you, and to help you do away with these things in your life.

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Proverbs 14:1-14

1 Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.
2 He that walketh in his uprightness feareth the LORD: but he that is perverse in his ways despiseth him.
3 In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them.
4 Where no oxen are, the crib is clean: but much increase is by the strength of the ox.
5 A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies.
6 A scorner seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not: but knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth.
7 Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge.
8 The wisdom of the prudent is to understand his way: but the folly of fools is deceit.
9 Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous there is favour.
10 The heart knoweth his own bitterness; and a stranger doth not intermeddle with his joy.
11 The house of the wicked shall be overthrown: but the tabernacle of the upright shall flourish.
12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
13 Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful; and the end of that mirth is heaviness.
14 The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways: and a good man shall be satisfied from himself.

 

Things to think about:

  • What are some ways that a good woman can build her house?
  • What are some characteristics of the foolish mentioned in this Scripture?
  • What are the characteristics of the wise mentioned in this Scripture?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

As we read and study this Scripture in Proverbs help us to learn the difference between the wise and the foolish. Give us discernment and help us to know who to associate with and who to avoid. Help us to make wise decisions. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
