A Psalm of David When He Was in the Wilderness of Judah. O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You In a dry and thirsty land Where there is no water.So I have looked for You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory. Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips shall praise You. Thus I will bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name. My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips.
Down in the dumps, got the Wednesday morning blues? Study verses 1-5 of the 63rdPsalm (and stick with passages for Thursday and Friday)
Who will not be lifted by this recipe for drawing nearer to the LORD, God the Almighty? Maybe I need to prepare for the mid-week doldrums by ending Tuesday night by a meditation on this message from the Word of the LORD.
Morning Psalm 125, Noon Psalm 119:49-56, Evening Psalm 22
Alternate Reading Plan based on 7 chapters/day from 7 sections of the Scriptures. My groupings are: Genesis-Joshua, Judges to Esther, Job to Song of Solomon, Psalms breaking 119 into convenient sets, Isaiah to Malachi, Matthew to Acts, Romans to Revelation.
Set your own up in convenient groupings as fits your study habits.
I suggest either setting aside a period of the day to read all, or break the readings up into morning, mid-day, and evening series. Both approaches have their advantages, and both will build an awareness of the Bible as a whole over time.
