Psalm 78:38-51(GNT)

God’s Guiding Word: Promise

June 14

Introduction

Psalm 78:38–51: Today’s reading recounts the mighty acts and miracles God performed while the people were enslaved in Egypt.

Today’s Key Verse: Psalm 78:38a

God was merciful to his people. He forgave their sin and did not destroy them.

Reading

38 But God was merciful to his people.
    He forgave their sin
    and did not destroy them.
Many times he held back his anger
    and restrained his fury.
39 He remembered that they were only mortal beings,
    like a wind that blows by and is gone.

40 How often they rebelled against him in the desert;
    how many times they made him sad!
41 Again and again they put God to the test
    and brought pain to the Holy God of Israel.
42 They forgot his great power
    and the day when he saved them from their enemies
43     and performed his mighty acts and miracles
    in the plain of Zoan in the land of Egypt.
44 He turned the rivers into blood,
    and the Egyptians had no water to drink.
45 He sent flies among them, that tormented them,
    and frogs that ruined their land.
46 He sent locusts to eat their crops
    and to destroy their fields.
47 He killed their grapevines with hail
    and their fig trees with frost.
48 He killed their cattle with hail
    and their flocks with lightning.
49 He caused them great distress
    by pouring out his anger and fierce rage,
    which came as messengers of death.
50 He did not restrain his anger
    or spare their lives,
    but killed them with a plague.
51 He killed the first-born sons
    of all the families of Egypt.

Reflect

Reread verses 42–51. What mighty acts and miracles are recalled? Why do you think the people forgot about God’s power and the day God saved them? Has God performed a miracle for you? In what ways are God’s acts and miracles remembered in your community of faith?

Pray

Mighty God, great is your power. May I never forget your mighty acts and miracles. Strengthen my faith each day and sustain me with your word as I grow in knowledge of you. Amen.
