July 24: “One Year Bible”

 Minute Read

Be Still

To the best of your ability, get rid of all distractions. Take a couple of minutes to breathe deeply, to quiet yourself in the Lord’s presence. Then, prayerfully ask the Lord to speak to you in this time and let Him know that you will be listening and will make whatever adjustments He will reveal to you.

Today’s Bible Reading:

2 Chronicles 11:1–13:22
Romans 8:26-39
Psalm 18:37-50
Proverbs 19:27-29

Listen to the Lord

Slowly and reflectively read the following verses and listen to what God will say to you through them. Then, consider writing down any insights He reveals to you.

(I apologize that I don’t have any personal reflections today. I am under the weather, and it’s a bit of a struggle to gather my thoughts. I will get back to writing as soon as I’m able.)

Reflections from Scripture:

Spend Time in Prayer
