Daily Bible Reading: Psalms 78
Verse of the Day: Psalm 78:1 – “Give ear, O my people, to my law: Incline your ears to the words of my mouth.”
This Psalm today is the second longest in the Book. It is only surpassed by Psalm 119. The Psalmist alternates between reports of the faithfulness of God to His people and their periodic outbursts of stubbornness, willfulness and rebellion against Him.
We see how that God had been faithful in the history of Israel – even when they didn’t follow Him. It recounts His salvation provided in the Exodus and challenges the people to teach their children the truths of His wisdom and guidance.
How often today do we forget the past watchcare and protection of God in our lives? Today, pause and reflect upon His care in our past – He will continue in our future.
Prayer: O God who cares and protects, I trust You to hold and direct my life today. Amen.
