Daily Bible Reading “His Mercy Endures Forever” (Psalm 136:1-9)

Psalm 136 1His Mercy Endures Forever

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 136:1-9. The theme of Psalm 136 is to give thanks to the LORD because He is good and His mercy endures forever.

The first part of the chapter talks about how we should be in awe of the wondrous works that the LORD God performed through His creation. The Scripture talks about how through His great wisdom He made the heaven and stretched the earth above the seas. It goes on to talk about His creation of the light He created to light the world. He made the sun to rule the day and the moon and stars to rule the night.

If you go back to Genesis chapter one and read the account of God’s creation of the heavens and earth you will see the Scripture says, “He said,” and it was so. He is so powerful all He had to do is say what He wanted to be created and as a result, He spoke it into existence.

We take so much for granted that God has provided for us. We really need to stop and take some time to think about His awesome power, His great love for us, and give Him glory for it all. Hebrews 13:15 says, “By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.”

7 To him that made great lights: for his mercy endureth for ever:
8 The sun to rule by day: for his mercy endureth for ever:

Daily Bible Reading “His Mercy Endures Forever” (Psalm 118:1-29)

 

Psalm 118 1His Mercy Endures Forever

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 118:1-29. Psalm 118 is a prayer and song of praise to the LORD. This is said to be the song they sung the night of the Lord’s Supper. Over and over again you will see the words, “His mercy endureth forever.”

I think the best thing you can do is just read the whole chapter and notice every time you see the word LORD, what the Scripture has to say about Him. Notice how in this Scripture they praise the LORD. When we go to Him in prayer, do we praise Him or do we just ask Him for what we need or whatever our concerns are?

Maybe if we spent more time praising the Lord for who He is and for what He has done we would see His presence in our lives even more. My hope is that as we look at these different Scriptures and see how they praise the LORD, we will learn to do a better job of letting Him know how much we love and appreciate Him.

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Psalm 118:1-29

1 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever.
2 Let Israel now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.
3 Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.
4 Let them now that fear the LORD say, that his mercy endureth for ever.
5 I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, and set me in a large place.
6 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?
7 The LORD taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me.
8 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
9 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.
10 All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD will I destroy them.
11 They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.
12 They compassed me about like bees; they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.
13 Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the LORD helped me.
14 The LORD is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.
15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
16 The right hand of the LORD is exalted: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
17 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.
18 The LORD hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me over unto death.
19 Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise the LORD:
20 This gate of the LORD, into which the righteous shall enter.
21 I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation.
22 The stone which the builders refused is become the head [stone] of the corner.
23 This is the LORD’S doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.
24 This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
25 Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.
26 Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.
27 God is the LORD, which hath shewed us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.
28 Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I will exalt thee.
29 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

 

Things to think about:

  • What are some things for which we can give thanks to the LORD?
  • Why does the Psalmist say it’s better to put your trust in God than man?
  • What is your favorite verse from this chapter?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

We thank You that Your mercy endures forever. LORD, we put our trust and our confidence in You and not in man. You are our strength and our song, and You have become our salvation. We will give thanks to You and praise You forever. We love You, LORD. Amen.

Daily Bible Reading “His Mercy Endures Forever” (Psalm 106:1-12)

Psalm_106_1His Mercy Endures Forever

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 106:1-12. The Psalmist starts this Psalm thanking and praising the LORD for His goodness and mercy, which endures forever.

He says, those who keep the LORD’S judgment and are righteous all the time are blessed. How many of us fit into that category? We all fall short from time to time in spite of our best efforts.

The Psalmist cries out to the LORD to remember him with the favor He bestows upon His children. The Psalmist begs the LORD to visit him with His salvation. He wants to see the good in God’s chosen people. He wants to be able to rejoice in the gladness of His nation and glory with His inheritance.

The Psalmist confesses to the LORD that they have sinned against Him and have done wickedly like their fathers. He recounts how their forefathers didn’t understand the wondrous works of the LORD in Egypt. Nor did they remember how merciful God was to them.

They provoked the LORD at the Red Sea when Moses led them out of Egypt, but He still saved them for His sake. He made His mighty power known by causing the Red Sea to part and allowing the Israelites to walk through on dry land. He saved them from the enemy when he rolled the Red Sea back over them (Exodus 14).

Not one of their enemies was left standing. As the Israelites marveled at His wondrous works they believed His words and sang His praises (Exodus 15:1). What does God have to do to get our attention and cause us to believe His Word and praise His holy name?

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Psalm 106:1-12

1 Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
2 Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? who can shew forth all his praise?
3 Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth righteousness at all times.
4 Remember me, O LORD, with the favour that thou bearest unto thy people: O visit me with thy salvation;
5 That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance.
6 We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly.
7 Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies; but provoked him at the sea, even at the Red sea.
8 Nevertheless he saved them for his name’s sake, that he might make his mighty power to be known.
9 He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up: so he led them through the depths, as through the wilderness.
10 And he saved them from the hand of him that hated them, and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.
11 And the waters covered their enemies: there was not one of them left.
12 Then believed they his words; they sang his praise.

 

Things to think about:

  • Have you considered how merciful and good God is?
  • How many times has God shown mercy toward you?
  • How do you respond when God is merciful to you?
  • Has God ever brought you through a situation that in the end you knew He was the LORD of your life?
  • In what ways can we thank God and praise Him for His goodness and mercy toward us?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

We thank You for the Scripture in Psalm 106 where the Psalmist reminds us of Your goodness and mercy toward us. Help us to worship and praise You for Your mercy which endures forever. Help us to be obedient to Your Word and forgive us of all the times we have failed You. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
