My Bible Reading Program

by Robin on October 26, 2009

Yep, I’m still workin’ on it.  I’m going to get through the Bible completely this year.  The way I do it is first I read a chapter or two in the Old Testament, (currently working through Ezekiel); then I go to my Psalms-Proverbs program. The Psalms-Proverbs program consists of starting in Psalms with the same number Psalm as the day of the month. (Today I read Psalm 26.) After reading this one, add thirty to that number, and read that one. (The next one is 56.) Continue this way until you run out of Psalms. (There are 150 of them.) After finishing the Psalms I go to Proverbs and read the same number Proverb as the day of the month. (There are 31 of these.) This program takes you completely through Psalms and Proverbs every month. After finishing my Proverb of the day, I go to the New Tesatment and pick up where I left off reading the day before. Right now I am in Revelation.  On this program I get completely through Psalms and Proverbs every month. I haven’t kept up with exactly how long it will have taken me to get through the Old and New Testaments, but I’ll keep better records on that next year.

Bible Reading Conquers Fear

The benefits of reading the entire Bible can’t hardly be calculated. One of them is understanding the world timeline. Another is the daily assurance that God is with me. Today I was so blessed as I read in Psalm 56.  I remember teaching my sons the memory verse Psalm 56:3;

When I am afraid,
I will trust in you.

But then the Psalm goes on with more comforting words.

In God, whose word I praise,
in God I trust; I will not be afraid.
What can mortal man do to me?

Read the whole Psalm while you’re online here, at Bible Gateway.

So after you watch Glenn Beck, just go get your Bible and read Psalm 56!
