Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 89:10-21. In this portion of Psalm 89, the Psalmist talks about Rahab, which is another name for Egypt, saying God has broken it into pieces and has scattered His enemies. The Psalmist acknowledges God as the creator of the heavens and the earth.
The Psalmist proclaims that God is a God of strength, mercy, and truth. As the supreme judge both justice and judgment are the foundation of His throne. He declares those who trust in the LORD walk in the light of His face and rejoice in His holy name. They are exalted in God’s righteousness, favor, and the glory of His strength. He states that the LORD God of Israel is their defense and king. He reminds the people how God chose David, His servant and anointed him with His strength to be king.
Daily Bible Reading:
10 Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain; thou hast scattered thine enemies with thy strong arm.
11 The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine: as for the world and the fulness thereof, thou hast founded them.
12 The north and the south thou hast created them: Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in thy name.
13 Thou hast a mighty arm: strong is thy hand, and high is thy right hand.
14 Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face.
15 Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance.
16 In thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted.
17 For thou art the glory of their strength: and in thy favour our horn shall be exalted.
18 For the LORD is our defence; and the Holy One of Israel is our king.
19 Then thou spakest in vision to thy holy one, and saidst, I have laid help upon one that is mighty; I have exalted one chosen out of the people.
20 I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him:
21 With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall strengthen him.
Things to think about:
- When you think of God, do you think of Him as being strong?
- How is God your defender?
- In what ways do you rejoice in God?

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.
