Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.I have sworn and confirmed That I will keep Your righteous judgments. I am afflicted very much; Revive me, O LORD, according to Your word. Accept, I pray, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O LORD, And teach me Your judgments. My life is continually in my hand, Yet I do not forget Your law.
The wicked have laid a snare for me, Yet I have not strayed from Your precepts. Your testimonies I have taken as a heritage forever, For they are the rejoicing of my heart. I have inclined my heart to perform Your statutes Forever, to the very end.
Ish Elohim declares this stanza as the focal point of his faith. No ifs or other forms of weasel words. The LORD, God, the Almighty says it, I will obey it.
Notice, also that he is quick to identify the snares of the Evil One. And cuts the devil absolutely no slack. Oh that I would learn to be as resolute.

Morning Psalm 24, Noon Psalm 119:81-88, Evening Psalm 70.
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.
