Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 92:1-15. Psalm 92 is a psalm, or song, for the Sabbath day, in which the Psalmist reminds us it is good to give thanks to the LORD and sing praises to His name. We can show Him our love and faithfulness by praying and giving thanks to Him both in the morning and at night before we fall asleep.
We can sing praises to God and play instruments with songs of hymns to Him. If you don’t play an instrument or sing, there are many other ways to praise Him. We have so much to thank God for. We can thank Him for His wondrous works. It pleases God for us to have an attitude of gratitude toward Him, instead of taking everything He does for us for granted. Doesn’t it make you feel good when others are grateful for what you do for them, instead of taking it for granted and acting like you owe them? In the same way our Heavenly Father enjoys it when we thank and praise Him.
The wicked don’t understand the LORD. The Scripture says, they will be destroyed, but God will reign forever. The righteous will flourish like the trees of Lebanon. They will bring forth fruit in their old days. The Psalmist declares, “The LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.”
Giving thanks and praising God are two of the things I talked about in my books: Give Thanks and Finding Our Identity in Christ. When we begin to thank God and praise Him we can feel His presence with us. As we do these things it will help us to develop a close, personal, intimate relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
Daily Bible Reading:
1 [A Psalm [or Song for the sabbath day.]] It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:
2 To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,
3 Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.
4 For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.
5 O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.
6 A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.
7 When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:
8 But thou, LORD, art most high for evermore.
9 For, lo, thine enemies, O LORD, for, lo, thine enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
10 But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.
11 Mine eye also shall see my desire on mine enemies, and mine ears shall hear my desire of the wicked that rise up against me.
12 The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
13 Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.
14 They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;
15 To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
Things to think about:
- In what ways do you enjoy giving thanks to God?
- What are your favorite songs to sing praises to God?
- Do you ever sing songs of praise to God outside of church?
- In what ways do you consider the LORD your rock?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank You for this Scripture in Psalm 92, where the Psalmist reminds us to give thanks to You and to sing Your praises. He reminds us that the righteous will flourish. Help us to show our love and faithfulness to You by giving thanks and singing praises to You day and night. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

About the book:
The Book of Psalms: Part 4 Chapters 91-118 by Deborah H. Bateman is 29th 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 has already been published in 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 4 Chapters 91-118 contains thirty-six 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.
