Day 1 Genesis 1-3 Creation and Fall
Awesome. These chapter read like a play. I could see the action unfolding in my mind. It was very mind provoking,to say the least.
Satan challenges God,concerning Job’s faith, stating Job is only faithful because God only blesses him. Satan claims that Job would very soon curse God if he was not protected by God’s blessings. God accepts Satan’s challenge and allows Satan to test Job’s faith… but he may not kill him.
Under Satan’s hand, Job loses his family, property, wealth, and health. Job never curses God, but he curses the day of his own birth and wishes he had never been born.
During his lowest point,(broken, alone, and now sick covered in boils) Job question God’s decisions and what God can and should do. He questions why some sinners are blessed with much, while some faithful believers struggle and suffer. Job asked God “Why?” over and over, but God never replies. Job has no idea that this is a test of his faith or that this is a challenge between Satan and God. Job has no idea of the outcome, but God does. Satan cannot see outcomes. He does not know he will meet with defeat. However, God, is All Knowing, and he knows what is in Job’s future.
God does address Job’s “so call” knowledge of what God can and cannot do by asking Job a rhetorical question about creation. In doing so, God reveals his power and glory and is able to prove that God’s ways and God’s reasoning are too mighty and wondrous for us to understand. Job was in awe of all he had heard and was unable to answer God’s questions.
Although, Job has always believed in his God, he now understands and accepts God as the Awesome and Mighty God he is. No one can teach God what is right or accuse Him of doing wrong. With this revelation, Job accepts whatever God has for him. He declared,Job declare, “Blessed be the name of the Lord!” Satan is defeated.
God restored all that Job had lost and blessed Job with so much more than he had before his test of faith.
And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.

I need a plan in reading the Bible all the way through.
I will be reading in chronological order via http://www.biblegateway.com/reading-plans/chronological
This plan is setup for 61 days.
I am not as interested in the number of days it may take me to read the whole Bible…. as I am that I have a do-able plan for me. 6 months ago
Timeline: this summer
Necessary resources: reading a little bit each day while I babysit/work 6 months ago
Read a good chunk of it (out loud) on a recent trip. This was actually one of the first books I ever read. It’s the one in which the Israelites demand a king “like their neighbours” and God warns them of what that will entail…(1 Samuel 8) 7 months ago
I’m doing the Youversion 90 day reading plan, so I spend 45-50 minutes with the word everyday. I’ve finished 78% of my reading and I hope to finishing reading through the Bible in two more weeks. I plan to slow down the pace and do a more focused book-to-book study after that. 7 months ago
How I did it: Read from both the Old and New testaments daily.
It is as simple and complex as that.
I pray before I start reading to open my mind and heart to God's word and simply read wherever the Spirit leads. The new testament is always a little more orderly than the old.
I have tried the "chapter a day' thing and it didn't work for me. I literally let the Bible fall open and start reading as long as it is a book I had not already read recently.
