Realizing the presence, promise, and power of the Kingdom of God.
Voices Together

But let the righteous be glad; Let them rejoice before God; Psalm 68:3-6

But let the righteous be glad; Let them rejoice before God; Yes, let them rejoice exceedingly. Sing to God, sing praises to His name; Extol Him who rides on the clouds, By His name YAH, And rejoice before Him. A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, Is God in His holy habitation. God sets the solitary in families; He brings out those who are bound into prosperity; But the rebellious dwell in a dry land.

The Righteous vs the Rebellious. Or the very richness's of His presence vs the arid-ness of His absence.

Look at the activities (involvement) called for in living the life of the Righteous: putting on the robes of gladness and rejoicing in His Presence. Singing His praises to His Name, extolling Him as He rides on the clouds, addressing Him by that holy name YAH as we rejoice.

Who is the LORD, God, the Almighty? He is father to the fatherless; He is the defender of widows and orphans; He brings the slave to prosperity (freedom). All while the rebellious are banished to the most arid of deserts.


Morning Psalm 144, Noon Psalm 119:17-24, Evening Psalm 40

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.
