One Day at a Time
Today’s reading: Psalm 65:1-68:35
My selection: Psalm 68:19
Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears us up; God is our salvation. Selah
My reflections: God’s faithful support comes to us day by day. Just as His mercies are new every morning (Lamentations 3:22) so is His strength which bears us up. He is our salvation. He does not give us a lifetime of grace in advance but daily bears us up. Therefore, it is necessary to come daily to Him for fresh strength; It is necessary to be renewed daily in our minds to think and act in godly ways.
My challenge: As you see His daily faithfulness, say with the Psalmist “blessed be the Lord, who daily bears [me] up” or sing in the words of the old hymn:
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow
Blessings all mine with ten thousand beside
Great is Thy faithfulness, great is Thy faithfulness
Morning by morning new mercies I see
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me.
Tomorrow’s reading: Psalm 69:1-72:20
