May 7 – Scripture of the Day


For the next several days in the 365 day chronological bible I’ll be reading the Psalms. The notes indicate that most of the psalms were not specifically dated, nor tied to specific events, though some have.

Today several verses stood out to me in two different psalms. First was Psalm 16:8, which says, “I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.”

This line reminds me of a wonderful song by Building 429 called “We Won’t Be Shaken.” It is a wonderful song. My favorite Building 429 sing is “Where I Belong.” Take a listen below.

The other verses that stood out to me come from Psalm 19. Verses 1, 8 and 12-13. They say:

1 The heavens proclaim the glory of God.
   The skies display his craftsmanship.
8 The commandments of the Lord are right,
   bringing joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are clear,
   giving insight for living.
12 How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart?
   Cleanse me from these hidden faults.
13 Keep your servant from deliberate sins!
   Don’t let them control me.
Then I will be free of guilt
   and innocent of great sin.
