Bible Exploration: Week 1

I hope everyone has had a great journey during week 1 of our Bible exploration. If you are following the 1 year reading schedule here is a list of you week one accomplishments.

  • Genesis = 12 Chapters
  • Psalms = 16 Chapters
  • Matthew = 8 Chapters

Congratulations on a total of 36 chapters read. What I will try to do each week is share the passage that stood out the most or had the most impact to me. So during week 1 the passage that effected me the most was Psalms 16.

Psalms 16:1-11 A Miktam of David. Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge. [2] I say to the LORD, “You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you.” [3] As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones, in whom is all my delight. [4] The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply; their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out or take their names on my lips. [5] The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot. [6] The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. [7] I bless the LORD who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me. [8] I have set the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. [9] Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure. [10] For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol, or let your holy one see corruption. [11] You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

I really needed to read that today. I think I will be praying that psalm for the whole week. So what passages stood out to you? Comment and share it with the rest of us.
