First Time Through!

Bible

When God laid it upon my heart to start this daily devotional blog in 2014, I started out with the New Testament. I wanted to go through each book, chapter by chapter, seeking what God has to say. As I was going through the New Testament, I encouraged everyone to read the entire chapter and book that I was in.

In each chapter I would look at it and seek what God would have me to say about a verse or two. Some chapters I would use several verses in more than one blog post. Other chapters, I only used a single verse, or none at all.

I went through the entire New Testament, and then went through it again. Once I had gone through it twice, I started on the Old Testament. It has taken over a year to complete through the Old Testament. With going through the New Testament and then the Old Testament, it has taken nearly four years, but it has been accomplished.

I trust that as you read these daily devotions each day, you had read the chapter the verses were in. God’s word is alive and sharper than a two-edged sword. It can and will change your life.

Hebrews 4_12

If all you have read of the Bible is what I posted on my blog, then you have missed the purpose of this blog and missed a lot of what God has for you. This blog is just to help guide you and help you focus on God’s word. It helps you to look at the verses and ask some questions about them and how they can apply to your life today.

Many people struggle with reading many parts of the Old Testament, but if you have read my posts, you can see that no matter where it was, there was something for a believer. All of God’s word points to God and to Jesus. God has given His word so that you may know Him and have a relationship with Him.

Psalm 119_105

I am looking forward to the days to come as I start over with the New Testament. I know that God will open up some new verses to be talked about. He has new things to show you and me to help us be more like Jesus and have a better relationship with Him.

Thank you for following or stopping by to read my daily devotionals God has laid upon my heart to write. I trust that you will open the Bible today and everyday and read what God has for you. Don’t just take my word for it, but see if what I say is really in the Bible. God can and will show you more than just what I write about, if you are willing to read His word.

May you grow closer and more like Jesus everyday. May you know and understand God and His word more each day. And may you grow to hunger for more of God and His word every day.
