Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 68:1-7. Psalm 68 is a Psalm of David to the chief Musician. This is thought to be a dedication to Jerusalem. David starts by saying, “Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered.” Have you let God arise in your life?
David declares let those who hate God flee, as smoke is driven away let them go away, even as wax melts by fire, so will the wicked perish at the presence of God. The righteous will be glad and rejoice before God. They will sing praises to God and rejoice exceedingly.
David reminds us that God is a father to the fatherless. If you are fatherless, remember, God loves you and He is there for you. When I lost my father, I was devastated for a long time. God comforted me. I knew that I could go to Him anytime, day or night, with my concerns. He has always been there for me.
God is a judge to widows; God loves you and is near to you; when you are lonely, call on Him. God puts those who are alone in families. He brings out those who are in chains, but the rebellious live in a dry land. Rebelling against God can leave you in a dry land, far from God, where nothing is blessed.
When the Israelis were in the wilderness, God went before them and led them through the wilderness. Have you noticed God leading you throughout your life?
Daily Bible Reading:
1 [[To the chief Musician, A Psalm [or] Song of David.]] Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him.
2 As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.
3 But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.
4 Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him.
5 A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.
6 God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.
7 O God, when thou wentest forth before thy people, when thou didst march through the wilderness; Selah:
Things to think about:

- How can God be a father to the fatherless?
- Have you accepted God as your Heavenly Father?
- What is your favorite song to sing when you are singing praises to God?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank You for this Scripture in Psalm 68. David declares, “Let God arise.” Help us to let You arise in our lives. He talks about how the enemy is driven away from You and melts like wax. Please drive the enemy away from us and protect us from his snares. 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.
