Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path. Psalm 119:105
This is it! This is the new challenge for the Many Strands page. Reading the Bible in 90 Days cover to cover!! I saw a quote the other day that I loved, “The Bible is the only book whose Author is with you while you read it.” As you read and you have a question, He is right there to answer it for you.
I would like for us to follow the Bible reading plan below and it is entirely up to each one of you how you complete each days assignment. I believe that I will read one passage in the morning, the second referenced passage at mid-day and then at night, right before bed, read the New Testament assignment.
This challenge goes along with helping us to survive spiritually; whenever we are faced with trials of any kind. It specifically relates back to my blog post at the beginning of the week; “Are You Prepared?” The more we know the Bible the more prepared we will be to put on the full armor of God and march against our enemy, the devil.
This Challenge will begin on Monday, August 6th and will continue through November 5th; technically it should end on the 3rd of November, but I am giving you grace days to complete the assignments.
I will post this document as a note and will share each day’s assignment on the Many Strands page with their corresponding link to Bible gateway. You may read any version of the Bible you like and I hope that as we read each day…you will share verses or words that spoke to your heart on the Many Strands page. I am so excited to begin this challenge with all of you and I am looking forward to what God is going to do for us and those that we love through this challenge.
Before you begin each day’s reading say a prayer; like the one below inviting God into your reading time.
Lord, inspire us to read your Scriptures and to meditate upon them day and night. We beg you to give us real understanding of what we need, that we in turn may put its precepts into practice. Yet we know that understanding and good intentions are worthless, unless rooted in your graceful love. So we ask that the words of Scripture may also be not just signs on a page, but channels of grace into our hearts. In Jesus name, Amen
And then after you finish reading the passages share a prayer with Him like this one…
Lord, I thank you for your special presence to me during this time. I thank you for the opportunity to know you and your ways better. Open my heart, Lord, that I may put into practice that which you have revealed to me. I thank you Lord, for the gift and love of your sacred Word. In Jesus Name, Amen.
So….are we ready to read the Bible in 90 days????
