Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 111:1-10. The Psalmist declares he’ll praise the LORD in the congregation. He professes the works of the LORD are great, honorable, and glorious. The righteousness of the LORD endures forever. God made His wonderful works to be remembered.
How can we step outside, look at the sky, the sun, the moon, the grass, the trees, the ocean, the mountains, the birds, and every living creature and not remember the works of the LORD? His creation is all around us. It’s beautiful and majestic.
The LORD is gracious and compassionate. God made a covenant with His people and He will stand by that covenant forever. He sent redemption to the world through His Son, Jesus Christ.
I love verse ten, which says, “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.” What does it mean to fear the LORD? Perhaps it means to respect, show reverence toward Him, and be in awe of Him. He is holy and worthy to be praised.
Daily Bible Reading:
1 Praise ye the LORD. I will praise the LORD with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.
2 The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.
3 His work is honourable and glorious: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
4 He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD is gracious and full of compassion.
5 He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he will ever be mindful of his covenant.
6 He hath shewed his people the power of his works, that he may give them the heritage of the heathen.
7 The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his commandments are sure.
8 They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness.
9 He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name.
10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.
Things to think about:
- When you look around at God’s creation what are you most in awe of?
- What was God’s covenant to His people?
- What does the Scripture say is the beginning of wisdom?
- In what ways do you consider yourself to be wise?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank You for this Scripture in Psalm 111 where the Psalmist reminds us of how awesome You are. He reminds us of Your wondrous works and Your gift of salvation to man. Help us to revere You and stand in awe of Your creation and Your wondrous works. Help us to love You for who You are and not only for what You do for us. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

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.

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.
