To the Chief Musician. On Stringed Instruments. A Psalm. A Song.
God be merciful to us and bless us, And cause His face to shine upon us, Selah
That Your way may be known on earth, Your salvation among all nations. Let the peoples praise You, O God; Let all the peoples praise You.
Oh, let the nations be glad and sing for joy! For You shall judge the people righteously, And govern the nations on earth. Selah
Let the peoples praise You, O God; Let all the peoples praise You. Then the earth shall yield her increase; God, our own God, shall bless us.
God shall bless us, And all he ends of the earth shall fear Him.
“Wherever He leads, I will go” is playing on the radio beside me as I read this precious Psalm. A perfect combination of praise and declaration of fealty. To praise the LORD, God the Almighty is meaningless without obedience. The LORD is not fooled! Sometimes, I was suckered in similar circumstances. Never so with the LORD; I am the only fool as I sit singing His praises during a LORD's Day Worship service. It was/is to my shame and a tribute to His patience with me, a sinner.
Morning Psalm 141, Noon Psalm 119:169-176, Evening Psalm 37
Alternate Reading Plan based on 7 chapters/day from 7 sections of the Scriptures. My groupings are: Genesis-Joshua, Judges to Esther, Job to Song of Solomon, Psalms breaking 119 into convenient sets, Isaiah to Malachi, Matthew to Acts, Romans to Revelation.
Set your own up in convenient groupings as fits your study habits.
I suggest either setting aside a period of the day to read all, or break the readings up into morning, mid-day, and evening series. Both approaches have their advantages, and both will build an awareness of the Bible as a whole over time.
