Weekly Daily Devotional

Week of September 24, 2017


Monday – Psalm 119 

1.We can hide God's Word in our heart by studying, meditating upon it, and   understanding its meaning. (Vs. 11) Let us ask ourselves today if God's Word is deep  within us, influencing our values and our behavior.      

2.Knowing God's Word is a way to know His will. When we understand what He  wants it is easier to please Him. (Vs. 11)

3.God's law is wonderful because it is a guide for us to live in a way that pleases  Him. (Vs. 18) Let us think back to times when His law was broken, and the   consequences of our actions.    

4.Those who belong to God are citizens of heaven, and are not completely at home  here. (Vs. 19) We can understand now why we feel like we do not "fit" here   sometimes.  

5.A joyful carefree heart comes from the security of knowing what our boundaries  are.  When we stay within the limits of God's plan we can be confident that we are  in the right place possible.(Vs. 32)

6.God's laws remain relevant for today because they are unchanging absolute  truths  and remain solid and dependable when nothing else can be trusted. (Vs.  52)   

7.God's Word gives enough light for each step in making our decisions. (Vs. 105) If  we have  decisions to make, let us stay in the Word and we will find  answers.                                                                                                                                                

8.Being double minded means to have two different opinions on the same thing,  and  playing it safe by not making a commitment or decision.  (Vs. 113)    

9.The psalmist compares God's Word with a soldier who wins a battle and comes home  with the spoils of war. The Bible offers great riches to its readers.  Let us stay in the  Word. (Vs. 162)   


Tuesday - Psalm 120

1.This is another way of saying "they will reap what they sow." (Vs. 3,4)  

2.The psalmist is saying in this psalm that the God who created the heavens and earth  takes the time to watch over and protect all who trust in Him and His Word. Nothing can  separate us from the love of God. (See Rom. 8:28-39)    

Wednesday - Psalm 121

1.Family, friends and wealth should never be thought of as our ultimate source of help  in this life. Let us always look to God for meeting all of our needs. (Vs. 2)

2.God never sleeps, even as we sleep, He watches over us. (Vs. 3-8) Let us hold on to  this, and give Him praise!     

Thursday - Psalm 122

1.Congregational worship in the Old Testament was so exciting that worshipers were   happy to get together for this purpose.  (Vs. 1) How much more should we be happy to  join together to worship now that we have the Old Testament fulfillment in Jesus   Christ?(Vs. 1)   

2.Jerusalem means "City of Peace." The psalmists prayer is that the city will live up to  its name. Peace "Shalom" is a word that includes welfare, health, prosperity, and   happiness. Let us always pray for the peace of Jerusalem, seek its good, and pray with  true concern for its welfare. (Vs. 6) 

3.What is God's promise to those who pray for the peace of Jerusalem? (Vs. 6)

Friday - Psalm 123

1.Just as Jesus looked to heaven for His source of supply, we are to do so also. (Vs. 1- 2)                                                                

2.Harsh words can hurt us more than a flesh wound. (Vs. 4) Let us always watch  our words!

Saturday - Psalm 124

1.If God is on our side, who can be against us? Let us always remember where our help  comes from.
