Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 65:1-13. Psalm 65 is a Psalm of David, to the Chief Musician. David praises and worships God in silence. Have you ever praised and worshiped God in silence? David confesses his sin to God, and knows God will cleanse him from his sin. David realizes he is blessed to be chosen by God.
David then goes into an exhortation of the greatness of God. He even demonstrates how the earth rejoices at God’s marvelous work. He talks of God’s creation from the mountains to the sea and the meadows.
I love looking at the world which God created and we get to enjoy. My favorite place is the beach. I love the sound of the waves and looking at the vast horizon.
I love to walk outside and start thanking God for everything I see. Thank You for the flowers, thank You for the trees, thank You for the grass, thank You for the birds, on and on we can go.
I call this my Thank You Jesus prayer. Sometimes I do it with my youngest granddaughter. Sometimes when we are riding in the car we will sing songs and do our Thank You Jesus prayer. We’ll name everybody we know to thank Him for and then we thank Him for the flowers, trees, birds, house, car, everything we can think of to say thank You. God has truly blessed us and we have so much for which to be thankful.
When I look at the vastness of His creation, I stand in awe of His power and greatness. How great is God to be able to speak it all into existence. Take some time today to stop and think about the greatness of God and all He means to you. Think of all the things He has done for you. Think of everything and everybody He has placed in your life. You don’t even have to say anything. Just enjoy being in His presence and show your gratitude to God.
Daily Bible Reading:
1 [[To the chief Musician, A Psalm and Song of David.]] Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion: and unto thee shall the vow be performed.
2 O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.
3 Iniquities prevail against me: as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away.
4 Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.
5 By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our salvation; who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the sea:
6 Which by his strength setteth fast the mountains; being girded with power:
7 Which stilleth the noise of the seas, the noise of their waves, and the tumult of the people.
8 They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at thy tokens: thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.
9 Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it: thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God, which is full of water: thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it.
10 Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settlest the furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof.
11 Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness.
12 They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills rejoice on every side.
13 The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.
Things to think about:
- How does it make you feel to think of the greatness of God?
- When you look at all God created how do you feel?
- When you think about how much God loves you, how do you feel?
- What are some ways we can show God we are grateful for who He is and all He has done?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank You for this Scripture in Psalm 65. David praises You in silence. He is in awe of Your greatness and power. He talks about the beauty of Your creation. Help us to rever You and worship You in all Your glory, power and majesty. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

About the book:
The Book of Psalms:Part 3 Chapters 61-90 by Deborah H. Bateman is 28th 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 contains 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 3 Chapters 61-90 contains fifty 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.
