Through the Bible in 90 Days Final Daily Devotion

Day 90 a summation of my thoughts on the 90 days through the Bible.

First off it does feel good to have accomplished what I set out to accomplish, reading through God’s word. Different things stood out to me this time than had before. Doing the daily devotions made me accountable to keeping up with the readings and made it more meaningful to me. So thanks for doing this with me and allowing me to do this.

God’s word opens with these words; “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1) Then God’s word ends with these words; “Yes, I (Jesus) am coming soon.” “Amen. Come, Lord Jesus .” The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen. (Revelation 22:20 & 21) All the pages in between deal with God’s interactions with His people and all people and with His peoples interactions with God. God is God who is the promise maker and promise keeper from beginning to end. God is the faithful one.

I did feel much more at home once I got into the New Testament, yet in the Old I heard many words of promise and hope, so both are important to my knowing and understanding God. I don’t fully understand and know God, but I sense I know God better.

I’m glad I’ve done this spiritual exercise once again and will be doing it again sometime down the line. Not sure when, but most likely sometime. Next time, I’m thinking about doing it not over a set period of time, but reading each day until I hit a nugget from God’s word that I simply want to sit with for a while. So, it wouldn’t be a set amount of reading each day, simply reading till I read something that seems to be speaking to me at that moment and day. It’d be an interesting way to read through God’s word. I’ll see.

I’d like to hear from those of you who were able to read through all of God’s word with me. What stood out to you? What do you walk away with? What questions are still unanswered for you? (Not that I’ll be able to answer your unanswerable question, but would like to hear the questions that still hang with you.)

Tomorrow will be a Sabbath day for me and my daily devotions and then on Monday, I’ll be returning to using the daily lectionary as my guide for my daily devotions. If you are interested, the daily readings can be found on the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) website at:

O God, thank you for your word given unto us. May it continue to open us up to your abundant and magnificent love given unto us, which is to be shared with others. As we prepare to enter the second week of Advent, may we continue to open ourselves up to the gift given unto us and all people, namely your Son, Jesus Christ. Thanks for this opportunity to have read from beginning to end in your word. Thanks for speaking anew to us this day. Amen.

If you wish to discontinue receiving my daily devotion at any time just let me know. I know my needs and wants change from time to time.

Monday’s daily readings: Psalm 122; Isaiah 5:8-17; 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 and Luke 21:20-28

Blessings on your day.
