Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 104:1-17. Have you ever considered who the LORD is and all He does or has done? The Psalmist goes through a list of His acts in Psalm 104. He thanks and praises the LORD for His honor and majesty. The LORD covers Himself with light like a garment. He stretched out the heavens as a curtain to cover the world.
The LORD lays the beams of His chambers in the water. He makes the clouds His chariot and walks on the wings of the wind. He makes His angels spirits and His ministers a flaming fire. He created the foundations of the earth, and firmly established it, so it wouldn’t be moved forever.
He covers it with the deep like a curtain. The waters stood above the mountains. At the sound of thunder they fled. The water goes up to the mountains and back down to the valley where He founded them. He made springs of water to flow in the valleys between the mountains. He set boundaries so the waters would never cover the earth again. The springs provide water for the beasts of the field to quench their thirst and He causes the grass to grow to feed them.
He also uses the waters of the springs to provide places for the birds to make their nests as they sing with their beautiful voices from the branches of the trees. He causes herbs to grow so man can grow food to feed themselves and their families. He provides oil, bread, and wine to satisfy the hunger of man. His creation plan included every beast of the field, fowl of the air, and human being and all of their needs. He left nothing undone. How great is our God!
Daily Bible Reading:
1 Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.
2 Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:
3 Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:
4 Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:
5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.
6 Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.
7 At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away.
8 They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them.
9 Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.
10 He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills.
11 They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses quench their thirst.
12 By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches.
13 He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.
14 He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;
15 And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man’s heart.
16 The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted;
17 Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house.
Things to think about:
- Think about the vastness of God’s creation. Draw a picture on paper or in your mind to remind yourself of His creation.
- As you look at God’s creation, what is your favorite part?
- Think about how God provided for each and every creature He created and list them. What an awesome God!

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 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.
