Daily Bible Reading “Wait on the LORD” (Psalm 37:31-40)

Psalm 37 34Wait on the LORD

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 37:31-40. In this Scripture David continues to compare the differences between those who are righteous and those who are wicked.

We can see if we follow the LORD and are obedient to Him, He works things out in our lives. Sometimes you may have to go through some tough situations. We all have to deal with things in our lives that aren’t pleasant, but if we keep our eyes on God, He will see us through. God doesn’t always take the problem away, but He works it out so His chosen people are victorious in the end.

David exhorts us to wait on the LORD. Do you ever find it difficult to be patient when you are waiting on the LORD to intervene in a situation? God’s timing is not like our timing. We live in this microwave age, where we want everything now. When we are on God’s time we have to be patient. There may be things behind the scenes that we don’t even know about that He is working out on our behalf. Be patient and wait on the LORD. It will be well worth the wait when He intervenes.

As you read this Scripture, think about your own life and how God, through His sovereignty, has worked things out in your life. Then, when you come to a troubled time in your life, look back at the times in the past where God has brought you through some of the tough times of life. It will give you strength and faith to continue, knowing God will work things out again.

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Psalm 37:31-40

31 The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.
32 The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.
33 The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.
34 Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.
35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.
36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.
37 Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.
38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.
39 But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble.
40 And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.

 

Things to think about:

  • Do you find it hard to wait on the LORD? Why?
  • Is the LORD a source of strength for you? If so, how does He give you strength?
  • Has there ever been a time in your life when it was impossible for anything but the LORD’S intervention to get you out of a troublesome situation?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

We thank You for this Scripture in Psalms where David reminds us that You are our salvation. You help us by leading, guiding, and directing our lives. You give us strength and wisdom when we’re confronted by wickedness and make us victorious. Help us to trust You to always be there for us no matter what the situation is. Help us to have a strong faith in You. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Daily Bible Reading “The LORD Won’t Forsake His Saints” (Psalm 37:21-30)

 psalm-37 28The LORD Won’t Forsake His Saints

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 37:21-30. In Psalm 37:21-30 David says, the wicked borrow, but don’t repay, but the righteous give of their resources. The righteous are blessed by God and will inherit the earth, but the wicked will be cut off.

The steps of a good man are led by the LORD, and he delights in his way. Even if he falls, he won’t be cast down, because the LORD holds him up. David exclaims he has never seen the righteous forsaken or begging for bread.

Righteous people will take part of what they have and share with those who are less fortunate. They take joy in being able to help feed the poor and needy. Wicked people are usually more selfish and self-centered. Their only concern is for themselves. They don’t care if they hurt other people.

The righteous man is generous and his seed is blessed by God. He exhorts us to do good and depart from evil. The LORD won’t forsake His saints. He tells us the righteous man speaks of wisdom and judgment.

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Psalm 37:21-30

21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.
22 For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.
23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.
25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
26 He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.
27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.
28 For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.
30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.

 

Things to think about:

  • What are some of the characteristics of a righteous person in this Scripture?
  • What are some of the characteristics of the wicked person in this Scripture?
  • If you are a Christian, what are some of the things you can look forward to according to this Scripture?

Thank You for this Scripture from Psalms, that reminds us of Your love, leadership, and direction of Your children. Help us to stay connected to You and Your blessings on our lives. Help us to study Your Word so we can make wise decisions. Bless us, LORD. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Daily Bible Reading “The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth” (Psalm 37:11-20)

  Psalm 37 11The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 37:11-20. In Psalm 37:11 David says the meek will inherit the earth and will delight in the abundance of peace. He reminds us the wicked plot against the just person. What does David mean by that statement? Is he saying the wicked physically attack the just? Or, is he saying the wicked attack the just with his words? Either way, David says the LORD laughs at them because He knows their day is coming.

David says their sword will penetrate their own hearts and their bows will be broken. David reminds us the little that a righteous man owns in this world is better than the riches of the wicked person. The arms of the wicked will be broken, but the LORD upholds the righteous.

The LORD knows the days of the upright and their inheritance is eternal. Those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior have inherited eternal life.

God takes care of His children. He says even though there may be a famine, the righteous will be satisfied. On the other hand, David says, the wicked will perish as the fat of lambs that is consumed by the fire.

As believers we can take comfort in this Scripture by focusing on the good things David says about those who belong to the LORD. We can also take comfort in knowing we don’t have to worry about our enemies because in due time they will get their just reward.

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Psalm 37:11-20

11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.
14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.
15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.
16 A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.
17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.
18 The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.
19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.

 

Things to think about:

  • What does this Scripture say will happen to the meek?
  • What does this Scripture say will happen to the wicked?
  • Which category do you consider yourself to be in and why?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

We thank You for this Scripture where David reminds us that You take care of Your children. You know everything about us and You watch over and protect us from our enemies. Help us to always be faithful to You. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Daily Bible Reading “Delight in the LORD” (Psalm 37:1-10)

Psalm 37Delight in the LORD

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 37:1-10. Psalm 37 is a Psalm of David. David reminds us not to get frustrated, aggravated or envious of evil doers. They will be cut down and wither away like the grass. They may seem to prosper, but their evil ways will catch up with them. Are there things in your life that make you so enraged that you almost can’t control your actions? What can we do, as believers, to combat this attitude?

Instead, David exhorts us to trust in the LORD, and do good and He will give us the desires of our hearts. He will change the desires of our hearts to line up with His desires. We are reminded to delight ourselves in the LORD, and trust in Him. When we delight ourselves in the LORD, our attitude will change. When we commit our ways to the LORD, He will bless us. David tells us to rest in the LORD and wait patiently; we will get our just reward. Do you find it hard sometimes to wait patiently on the LORD?

We need to avoid being angry and keep ourselves from expressing our wrath. We shouldn’t let our passions cause us to do evil things. Evil doers will be cut off, but those who wait on the LORD will inherit the earth. The wicked will be destroyed, but those who put their trust and faith in the LORD will be rewarded.

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Psalm 37:1-10

1 [[[A Psalm] of David.]] Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.

 

Things to think about:

  • In what ways do you trust in the LORD?
  • In what ways do you delight in the LORD?
  • How have you committed your life to the LORD?
  • How do you find rest in the LORD?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

We thank You for this Scripture in this Psalm of David. Through this Scripture we see if we follow God and commit ourselves to You our lives will be blessed. Help us to stay away from evil and to trust our lives to You. Help us to delight in You and allow You to change our hearts and our lives. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
