Weekly Daily Devotional

Week of October 1, 2017



Monday – Psalm 125

1.Mount Zion is a symbol of security. (Vs. 1) Where is our trust?

2.Israel endured many wicked governments, both Hebrew and foreign   conquerors. The wicked governments encouraged the people to break the  commandments of God and do evil. (Vs. 3) Ungodly leaders may also have used  threat of punishment for those who sought to follow God. Let us always pray for  those in authority, and be firm in what we believe. 

Tuesday - Psalm 126

1.This song refers to the return of the Jews from the Babylonian captivity after  70 years in exile. 

2.Sowing seeds during times of drought brought anxiety. This psalm reminds the  people that their awful days in captivity were over and it was time to anticipate  God's future joy for them. (Vs. 5-6) After going through a trial, let us remember  God's hand in taking us through, and go on from there with joy. 

Wednesday - Psalm 127

1.Using our skills for the Lord is useless unless we depend on Him and His  anointing is upon it. (Vs. 1)

2.Those who trust in the Lord will sleep much better. (Vs. 2) Before going to  sleep at night, picture yourself handing over all your problems to Jesus in a box.  He gladly takes it, and walks away with it. Then get a good nights sleep!

3.Under the Old Covenant a large family was considered a blessing.(Vs. 3-5) All  children of believers must be viewed as gifts of God requiring wise and faithful  stewardship. This verse must be taken spiritually as well as biologically. Mature  Christians can have many spiritual sons and daughters to help them grow in the  Lord. 

Thursday - Psalm 128

1.Those who walk in the fear (awe, reverence) of the Lord will normally, in  obedience, work hard. Material blessings can come from that. (Vs. 1-6) Let us  determine to honor the Lord by working hard and  giving our best in whatever  position we are in. Let us think of ways to improve our positions at work, or at  home.  

Friday - Psalm 129

1.This Psalm is a song of victory over Israel's enemies. Read about how God  protects His nation and people. 

2.The psalmist makes his case to God just as a plaintiff in court would argue for  justice before a judge. (Vs. 4-8) 

Saturday - Psalm 130

1.Those who reap the misery and torment of their sins can cry out to God for  forgiveness, and He hears. (Vs. 1,2) If there is something on our heart today,  something that we are sorry for, and needs forgiveness, let us cry out to Him  now. Because of Jesus taking on our sin, we have the assurance that we are  forgiven, and our guilt is washed away. 

2.Because God's offer of forgiveness was apparent, the psalmist wanted to  know Him more intimately. He poured out his heart because he was certain of  His love and care. (Vs. 5-6) Let us always pour out our heart to Him, who loves  us so much. He is always there to listen and help.
