Weekly Daily Devotional

Week of September 17, 2017



Monday – Psalm 113 

1.How long is the Lord to be praised? (Vs. 1-3) Let us always remember to  praise Him in the morning, in the noontime, and in the evening, and all times in  between!

2.God goes beyond what we can ever expect in Who He is. Think of the  Incarnation and Crucifixion of Jesus Christ. God is definitely not aloof, he is as  near to us as our breath. (Vs. 6) This should always give us comfort. Our God is  Approachable because of what  Jesus has done for us. 

3.What does God do for His children? (Vs. 7-9)

Tuesday – Psalm 114

1.Israel and Jacob were two names for the same person. It is used here as  names for the nation in which he fathered. (Vs. 1)

2.The psalmist recalls the miracle of the exodus from slavery by crossing the  Red Sea, and passing through the Jordan River on dry ground. (Vs. 3) (See Exo.  14:16; Josh. 3:17) Let us recall the great miracles of God today in our own life,  then write them down in a journal so that we can go back to them to be  encouraged.  

Wednesday - Psalm 115

1.Let us place our trust in God, not in the things we have built for security. God  considers this idolatry. (Vs. 1-8) 

2.Who will God bless? (Vs. 13)

3.Our physical life will end here on earth, but our spirit lives on, fully alive. (Vs.  17) (See Matt. 22:32) (Ps. 16:9,10 corresponds with this statement)

Thursday - Psalm 116

1.The psalmist apparently was in deep trouble, perhaps physically, and his  statements in Vs. 1-6 exhibits his gratitude to the Lord for his life. This Psalm  highlights the joy of answered prayer. Think of the many times God has heard  your prayer and give Him praise!

2.Vs. 17 and 18 seem to be the vow the psalmist made to the Lord. The  suggestion is that it was to publically praise God for saving him. (Vs. 14-19) Let  us be vocal in our testimony to God's Mercy and Greatness, and give Him praise  for all that He has done in our life.

Friday - Psalm 117

1.The psalmist is bursting with praise for God in this Psalm. Is your heart  bursting with love for God and all that He has done in your life? Make it known to  the world! For today, take time to worship and praise Him, and spend quality time  just between you and Him. 

Saturday - Psalm 118

1.What phrase is repeated over and over in vs. 1-4?  Hold on to this, and  keep it guarded in your spirit.

2.Who is with us and what will happen if we take refuge in Him? (Vs. 6-9)

3.How did the psalmist cut off his enemies? (Vs. 10-13)

4.The writer of this Psalm remembers a time when Israel was surrounded and  everything seemed hopeless. He saw this as a time of a chastening experience  in his life, a time when God taught him important lessons about life, danger, and  trust in Him. (Vs. 18) Think of times when things looked hopeless in your life, and  then how things turned around. Let us learn from those times.

5.These verses are quoted five times in the New Testament. It applies to Jesus  being rejected by the Jewish leadership. (Vs, 22.23) Rejection is very difficult for  anyone to experience, but when God turns it around it is powerful!

6.The shouts of  "Save now" (Hebrew hosanna) was a recognition by the crowd  that Jesus is the Lord who can save, He is God. (Vs. 25-27) (See Matt. 21:9)
