After writing my last post, I have decided to create this daily post in which I will share just one or two things that I saw from my daily Bible reading. I will not be retelling or explaining the text. Hopefully, that will prompt you to read it.
I will aim to be transparent and hope to not have this post change my reading in order to post. Before I read, I usually ask God to open my eyes to see, and his Spirit causes me to see, believe, and embrace his word. I must confess that I do not always understand fully what I read and for certain, do not grasp all that is there to grasp, but at a later time, the Spirit will allow me to understand it or see something I did not see before. This is a journey in getting to know the God of the Bible, his Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.
I am currently in the book of Numbers. As things go, because I missed my reading yesterday, I had to combine yesterday’s and today’s reading; however, this post is only from the reading assigned today according to my Chronological Bible Reading Plan.
Today’s reading was Numbers, Chapters 33 and 34.
From Chapter 33, I see that God is a God of preserving history, and he knows how easily man gets tripped up, so he provides guardrails. That reminded me of Psalm 103:14
For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.
From Chapter 34, not only do I see that God is a Promise-Keeper, he is a God of order and specificity, and he knows our names.
Let’s read the Book!

The thing I love most about reading the Scriptures is that His Word is alive. I always learn something new from a passage each time I read it, no matter how familiar it may be. I’m currently reading through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation and love what He is showing me as I go through the Old Testament (I’m currently in 1 Samuel). I find myself getting eager to sit with Him each day as I never know where He will take me, but it’s always somewhere wonderful. 🙂 Blessings to you, Barbara!
Yes, his word is alive! That’s why we are ever learning. Thanks for checking this spot out! Enjoy your journey! I love journeying through the Bible.
