Bible Reading Enhances Any Day (BREAD)
Daily Bible Reading: Hosea 10-11, Psalm 105
Hosea 11:4 (NKJV) I drew them with gentle cords, with bands of love, And I was to them as those who take the yoke from their neck. I stooped and fed them.
Psalm 105:1-4 (NKJV) Oh, give thanks to the LORD! Call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples! Sing to Him, sing Psalms to Him; Talk of all His wondrous works! Glory in His holy name; Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the LORD! Seek the LORD and His strength; Seek His face evermore!
This historical psalm was evidently composed by King David, for the first fifteen verses of it were used as a hymn at the carrying up of the ark from the house of Obed-edom, and we read in 1 Chronicle 16:7, “Then on that day David delivered first this psalm to thank the Lord, into the hand of Asaph and his brethren.” Such a song was suitable for the occasion, for it describes the movements of the Lord’s people and his guardian care over them in every place, and all this on account of the covenant of which the ark, then removing, was a symbol. Our last psalm sang the opening chapters of Genesis, and this takes up its closing chapters and conducts us into Exodus and Numbers.The first verses are full of joyful praise, and call upon the people to extol Jehovah, Psalms 105:1-7; then the earliest days of the infant nation, are described, Psalms 105:8-15; the going into Egypt, Psalms 105:16-23, the coming forth from it with the Lord’s outstretched arm, Psalms 105:24-38, the journeying through the wilderness and the entrance into Canaan.We are now among the long Psalms, as at other times we have been among the short ones. These varying lengths of the sacred poems should teach us not to lay down any law either of brevity or prolixity in either prayer or praise. Short petitions and single verses of hymns are often the best for public occasions, but there are seasons when a whole night of wrestling or an entire day of psalm slinging will be none too long. The Spirit is ever free in his operations, and is not to be confined with, the rules of conventional propriety. The wind bloweth as it listeth, and at one time rushes in short and rapid sweep, while at another it continues to refresh the earth hour after hour with its reviving breath. The Treasury of David. C.H. Spurgeon
