Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 89:1-9. In Psalm 89 the Psalmist declares he will sing about the love of God forever. He says he will tell of God’s faithfulness throughout the generations. The Psalmist praises God for His wondrous works and says even the heavens will praise God for them.
He thanks God for his faithfulness to the saints and reminds us God is to be feared and revered by His saints. God is all powerful. There is nothing He can’t do.
This would be a good passage of Scripture for us to pray to God. It would be a great way for us to start our prayers. Don’t you think it would get God’s attention if we started our prayers with thanks and praise to Him instead of asking Him for what we want or need? The Psalmist acknowledges that God rules the sea and has the power to calm the waves.
Daily Bible Reading:
1 [[Maschil of Ethan the Ezrahite.]] I will sing of the mercies of the LORD for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.
2 For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens.
3 I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant,
4 Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations. Selah.
5 And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O LORD: thy faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints.
6 For who in the heaven can be compared unto the LORD? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the LORD?
7 God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him.
8 O LORD God of hosts, who is a strong LORD like unto thee? or to thy faithfulness round about thee?
9 Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them.
Things to think about:
- How can we use music to offer our praises to God?
- What are some other ways we can praise God?
- In what ways do you acknowledge God as being all powerful?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank you for this Scripture in Psalm 89 where the Psalmist reminds us of Your faithfulness to the saints. He also reminds us to sing praises to You and acknowledges Your strength and power. Help us to always praise You for Your wondrous works. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

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.
