Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 93:1-5. The Psalmist starts this Psalm proclaiming that the LORD reigns and is clothed in majesty and strength. God established both the world and His throne. He is everlasting. He is the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end.
The Psalmist says the floods have come and the waves are high, but the LORD is stronger than the noise of the mighty waves of the sea. Have you ever been on the beach when there was a storm coming and the waves are loud, they almost seem angry, and the thunder is boisterous? The LORD made these – He is mightier than they.
God’s testimonies are sure. We can trust Him and count on Him to keep His word. He is Holy, faithful and true. His name will endure forever. I love this verse from Revelation 14:2, “And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps.”
The Scripture reminds me of the sound of the waves at the beach. I love listening to the waves crashing as the surf comes in. I think about this Scripture when I hear the waves and think of God’s voice as being like the swishing sound of the waves. I don’t know about you, but that is a soothing sound to me. Have you ever considered God’s voice being like the sound of the waves?
The next time you are at the beach, close your eyes and listen to the sound of the crashing waves and feel God’s presence with you as you listen for His voice. You don’t have to wait until you go to the beach to do this – you can do it right now. Close your eyes and take time to be still and listen for His voice.
Many times I think the reason we don’t hear from God is because we don’t take time to be quiet and listen. In the hustle and bustle of life we often turn the television or radio on as soon as we get up in the morning and have some type of noise going all day long. Try spending some time each day in quiet meditation, listening to hear the voice of God speaking to you.
Daily Bible Reading:
1 The LORD reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.
2 Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting.
3 The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves.
4 The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.
5 Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O LORD, for ever.
Things to think about:
- How do you picture God?
- Do you think of God as being strong and mighty? How, when?
- Do you think of God as being clothed in majesty? What does it mean to do that?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for this Scripture in Psalm 93. LORD, we praise You for Your majesty and power. You are mightier than the sound of many waters crashing to the shore. Help us to learn to listen for Your voice. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

About the book:
The Book of Psalms: Part 4 Chapters 91-118 by Deborah H. Bateman is 29th 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 has already been published in 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 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.
