May 26 – Psalms 131, 138, 139, 143, 144, & 145

Below are my thoughts from the daily Bible reading of the West Side Church of Christ. Today’s reading comes from Psalms 131, 138, 139, 143, 144, & 145. Before reading I invite you to pray and asked God to speak to you as you read his word. Also above in the tabs is a link to the Bible reading plan.

In our reading today we are reminded by the Psalms that our entire lives matter to God. In Psalm 139:13 we read “You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.” These simple words remind us that God was the one designing us and creating every facial feature, every personality quirk, and every line in our finger print.

As we keep reading today we are reminded that God’s work did not stop at birth. He is involved today as well. “Reach down from heaven and rescue me; rescue me from deep waters, from the power of my enemies.” (Psalms 144:7 NLT) Or “The Lord is righteous in everything he does; he is filled with kindness. The Lord is close to all who call on him, yes, to all who call on him in truth. He grants the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cries for help and rescues them. The Lord protects all those who love him, but he destroys the wicked.” (Psalms 145:17-20 NLT) What a great reminder that God is involved in our every day lives. I find comfort in that, do you?
