Bible Reading: Psalm 46

Psalm 46God is our refuge and strength,A very present help in trouble.Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should changeAnd though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea;Though its waters roar and foam,Though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. Selah.There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,The holy dwelling places of the Most High.God ...

Bible Teaching: Psalm 45

Psalm 45My heart overflows with a good theme; I address my verses to the King; my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.

And in Your majesty ride on victoriously, for the cause of truth and...

Bible Reading: Psalm 44

Psalm 44 (Text unavailable. Please read on your own.) It is vital to put our trust in the right place. Our trust should not ultimately be in our own strength (vv.3,6). Rather, you are to trust the Lord: 'It's You who saved us' (v.7, MSG).' This psalm is addressed to God as King (v.4). That God is the King (and real leader) of Israel is a common idea in the psalms. Suffer...

Bible Reading: Psalm 39

Psalm 39I said, "I will guard my waysThat I may not sin with my tongue;I will guard my mouth as with a muzzleWhile the wicked are in my presence."I was mute and silent,I refrained even from good,And my sorrow grew worse.My heart was hot within me,While I was musing the fire burned;Then I spoke with my tongue:"LORD, make me to know my endAnd what is the extent of my days;Le...

Bible Reading: Psalm 38

Psalm 38 (No text provided. Please read from your own bible.) Today's reading is a vivid reminder of the important aspect of being penitent.

We are not only to be remorseful, but we must turn away...

It can be very tempting at times to look at others that don't know Christ and either fear them or envy their lifestyle. David had constant battles with his enemies, and certainly had reason to fret or worry for his own life, but he...

Bible Reading: Psalm 36

Psalm 36Transgression speaks to the ungodly within his heart; There is no fear of God before his eyes. For it flatters him in his own eyes concerning the discovery of his iniquity and the hatred of it. The words of his mouth are wickedness and deceit; He has ceased to be wise and to do good. He plans wickedness upon his bed; He sets himself on a path that is not good; He d...

Psalm 35 (Text unavailable. Please read on your own.) At any time, you can call out to God for help. Life is a battle and there are bound to be those who will be out to get us.

Psalm 34 (Text not provided. Please read from own bible.) This is one of my most favorite psalms. David invites the Israelites to come and "magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together" (34.3).
