"  Revive me according

  to Your Word."

       Psalm 119:25

Daily Bible Reading Plan

You can use the 5 R’s

 

  1. Read the Bible.

  2. Reflect on what you have just read.

  3. Record your personal insights.

  4. Review your attitudes and behavior.

  5. Respond to God in prayer and commitment.

 

You will need the following items to do this successfully:

  • A Bible.

  • A means to record your own thoughts.

  • About 20 minutes a day.

 

The approach is simple:

  • Read two chapters a day.  

  • Once you’ve read them, pick out one or two passages or verses or even single words that stand out to you the most, and think them over a bit more. In particular, note what they say about yourself, about God, about other people, or about life in general. 

  • Write your discoveries down, describing how they are relevant to your life, and how you plan to apply what you have learned. 

  • Based on the previous step, lift up a short prayer to God—or even write it out—asking for His guidance and strength to build these truths into your life.

  • Save your notes for future reference!

Or, use the acronym S O A P

 

S--for Scripture
Open your Bible to the reading found under today's date of your Bible bookmark. Take time reading and allow God to speak to you. When you are done, look for a verse that particularly spoke to you that day, and write it in your journal.

 

O--for Observation
What do you think God is saying to you in this scripture? Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you and reveal Jesus to you. Paraphrase and write this Scripture down in your own words in your journal.

 

A--for Application
Personalize what you have read, by asking yourself how it applies to your life right now. Perhaps it is instruction, encouragement, revelation of a new promise, or corrections for a particular area of your life. Write how this Scripture can apply to you today.

 

P--for Prayer
This can be as simple as asking God to help you use this Scripture, or it may be a greater insight on what He may be revealing to you. Remember, prayer is a two-way conversation, so be sure to listen to what God might be saying!  You may even want to write out a brief prayer.

 

It is a good idea to set aside a certain time in your schedule each day and find a quiet place where you won't be distracted.

It's not important when you do your devotions, but that you make it a consistent part of your day. For morning people, it's a great way to start your day. For others, it's a 20-minute lunchtime appointment with Jesus. For you night owls it's the final act of your day, a time to quiet your hearts and hear God's voice.
