Through the years, I have studied the Bible various ways. A couple of years ago, I used the One Year Bible. One year I just read John 14-17 every day! This year, however, I decided to read the Bible in the order it took place. Already, I am beginning to understand the Bible much better. Obviously, my plan started in Genesis. Then, right after the Tower of Babel and before Genesis 12 when Abraham comes on the scene, it skipped to Job. After reading Job, I went back and finished reading Genesis. It continued to Exodus stopping at one point for Moses’ glorious (and sobering) Psalm 90. I have enjoyed reading the Bible this way and am especially looking forward to reading the Psalms of David as they happen! I am also excited to read the Prophets. I know Isaiah and Jeremiah will make much more sense when I read more about the times they were prophesying in. Sometimes I get lost in all the judgment not knowing why God is judging. I hope this way of reading it will help me see the why behind God’s judgments.
Highlighting as I Go
As I read through the Bible, I really like highlighting verses that stick out to me. I recently was given a new Bible so I’ve had a whole new adventure to find verses about God’s love, His power, the end times, and prayer just to name a few! You know, the only down side to having a new Bible is you just can’t seem to find those verses you knew where on that certain place on the page in your old Bible! But the new adventure has been well worth it.
