Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 108:1-13. Psalm 108 is a Psalm of David in which he says his heart is fixed on the LORD. He declares he will sing and praise the LORD. He calls for the psaltery, harp and himself to awake early and praise the LORD. Do you wake up early and praise the LORD?
David promises to give praises to God among the people and to all the nations. He proclaims that the LORD is merciful and His mercy and truth reaches above the heavens. He declares that the LORD will be exalted above the heavens and His glory above the earth so His beloved will be delivered from death to salvation.
The Psalmist talks about the different parts of the world and what the LORD has to say about them. He asks God for deliverance from his enemies. He realizes the help of man is vain, but those who trust in the LORD will triumph.
So many times when we are in trouble we go to people to ask for help when our first response should be to seek the help of the LORD through prayer. Other people may have good intentions, though sometimes their help is in vain. The help of the LORD is our strong tower. We can lean on God to help us make the right decisions in our life.
Daily Bible Reading:
1 [A Song [or Psalm of David.]] O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.
2 Awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.
3 I will praise thee, O LORD, among the people: and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.
4 For thy mercy is great above the heavens: and thy truth reacheth unto the clouds.
5 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory above all the earth;
6 That thy beloved may be delivered: save with thy right hand, and answer me.
7 God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
8 Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver;
9 Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe; over Philistia will I triumph.
10 Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?
11 Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off? and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts?
12 Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.
13 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.
Things to think about:
- In what ways is your heart fixed on the LORD?
- Do you love to sing the praises of the LORD?
- David declares that the help of man is vain. In what ways have you found the help of man to be in vain?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank You for this Scripture in Psalm 108 where David tells us his heart is fixed on praising and worshiping You. Help us to get our heart fixed on You as well. Help us to realize there is only so much man can do for us, but You, O LORD, are our comforter, our provider, our savior, and our LORD. You can provide all of our needs. You love us unconditionally. Help us to praise and worship You all the days of our lives. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

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.
