Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 50:1-15. Psalm 50 is a Psalm of Asaph, who was one of the worship leaders in the temple. God is calling everyone on the earth to gather together before Him so He can judge His people. Are you ready for that call?
He is coming back and when He does, He will judge both the living and the dead. He will gather those together who have made a covenant with Him. The heavens will declare His righteousness. God is a righteous judge. He knows everything about us. He knows the thoughts and intentions of our hearts.
“All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all” (Isaiah 53:6).
God says He will not take any of our sacrifices, such as the animals that were sacrificed in the Old Testament. God reminds us that all the animals of the earth belong to Him anyway. God knows the animals like He knows us. God says even if He was hungry He wouldn’t tell us. Everything in this world belongs to God, He created it.
God reminds us to offer thanksgiving to Him. What God wants from us is praise and thanksgiving. God wants us to pay our vows to Him. God wants us to call on Him in the time of trouble. He will deliver us and we will glorify Him.
Do you call on God when you’re in trouble? Some people fast (go without food) and pray for God to deliver them. Have you ever wanted God’s favor in a situation bad enough to fast and pray for it?
Daily Bible Reading:
1 [[A Psalm of Asaph.]] The mighty God, even the LORD, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.
2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.
3 Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him.
4 He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people.
5 Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.
6 And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself. Selah.
7 Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I am God, even thy God.
8 I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy burnt offerings, to have been continually before me.
9 I will take no bullock out of thy house, nor he goats out of thy folds.
10 For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.
11 I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine.
12 If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.
13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?
14 Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High:
15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.
Things to think about:
- Are you ready for the call of God?
- Is there anything in your life for which you need to ask God to forgive you? If so, what?
- How much time do you devote to giving God praise and thanksgiving?

About the book:
The Book of Psalms: Part 2 Chapters 31-60 by Deborah H. Bateman is 27th 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 will contain 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 2 Chapters 31-60 contains thirty-five 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.
