Daily Bible Reading: Psalms 25 – 27
Verse of the Day: Psalm 25:6 – “Remember, O Jehovah, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindness; For they have been ever of old.”
Zakar – is the Hebrew word we find here for remember. It basically means to contemplate or call to mind. When it is used in a phrase that looks at past ideas or events, it is translated remember. In some passages in the Old Testament it is connected with the idea of thinking on the future and is translated as dwell on, consider, or mention.
The Psalmist in a number of places calls upon God to remember His people or His mercy. This does not intimate that God has forgotten, but that the writer is requesting God to take action according to the promises that He has made.
Prayer: Lord Almighty, remember Your promises to Your people – to me today. I seek your mercy, grace, and love. I hold to Your forgiveness and restoration. I am so thankful that You keep Your promises. Amen.
