Bible Reading Plan (Day 111)

DAY ONE HUNDRED ELEVEN — Leviticus 26, Psalms 33

Lev 26

On today’s chapter the LORD thus said to the Israelites concerning His covenant with them. And I’m talking about (or the text is) obedience and disobedience, oh and His commandments. So this is how it went down: “If you walk in my statutes and observe my commandments and do them, then I will give you your rains in their season, and the land shall yield its increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.” Lev 26:3-4

If they were obedient to the LORD it would have gone well with them and the land would’ve increase, trees yielded fruit and so on.

But if they were disobedient, it was totally the opposite. “Then if you walk contrary to me and will not listen to me, I will continue striking you, sevenfold for your sins. And I will let loose the wild beasts against you, which shall bereave you of your children and destroy your livestock and make you few in number, so that your roads shall be deserted.” Lev 26:21-22

This would be God’s judgement on His people for disobedience. He is not a mean God in the text! He wrote the rules, His people pay the price. He made the commandments, they brake them. He established a covenant, they break it also! I think that we can read clearly that God will punish them accordingly until they turn to Him and recognize, they have sinned.

Psalm 33

Amen to this Psalm :). Did you catch that? Some of God’s attributes were written on this Psalm. It’s amazing! That we can know our God through this book, through scripture. We should be then like the Psalmist and have our joy in Him; shout for joy in the LORD. Our hope is in Him and Him ALONE. I think the Psalm being read is better than my knuckle headed words:

Psalm 33:13-22

13 The Lord looks down from heaven;
he sees all the children of man;
14 from where he sits enthroned he looks out
on all the inhabitants of the earth,
15 he who fashions the hearts of them all
and observes all their deeds.
16 The king is not saved by his great army;
a warrior is not delivered by his great strength.
17 The war horse is a false hope for salvation,
and by its great might it cannot rescue.

18 Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him,
on those who hope in his steadfast love,
19 that he may deliver their soul from death
and keep them alive in famine.

20 Our soul waits for the Lord;
he is our help and our shield.
21 For our heart is glad in him,
because we trust in his holy name.
22 Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us,
even as we hope in you.
