Weekly Bible Reading Forecast: Week 19

Should be pretty good reading conditions this week. A few familiar passages and some beautiful Psalms. It’s especially nice when we can read about “the spring of the year” in the spring of the year.

This week, we’re slowing down the pace a bit to focus in on the first events David does after he is established as king by the twelve tribes. Next week, we’ll see what happens once David is enthroned. There’s great anticipation building here because we’re finally about to see God’s people, in God’s place, under God’s rule.

To this point, our Bible reading has mainly moved right through the biblical order of books – but this week we’ll begin jumping around between Psalms and Chronicles (soon to include Samuel and Kings, too). Unlike Samuel (the prophetic account of Israel’s Kings) or Kings (the “royal account” of Israel’s Kings), Chronicles is the “historical account.” You’ll get a grittier picture of the Kings and an assessment of their actions based upon their faithfulness to the covenant. Pay attention to those differences as we read over the next few weeks.

Weekly Bible Reading Forecast: Week 16

The winds of renewal will blow in toward the end of this week, but the dark clouds of trouble will linger for the first half. Let’s not speed through the darkness because it’s there that the Lord so often meets us. It was true for David, and I suspect it remains true for many of us today. But on the other side – yes, even of this week - there’s beauty worth beholding.

Coming off the first three chapters of 1 Samuel last week, we’ll continue our journey into Samuel. We’ll usher in a new era in Israel: the era of the Kingdom. Spoiler alert: like all things in the Bible that get off to a good start, it comes crashing down pretty quickly. Let’s just call it a false start.

Weekly Bible Reading Forecast: Week 14

I’m not gonna lie – this forecast took a while because it’s real turbulent and I nearly crash-landed this thing. Let’s stick with it even when it’s bumpy. It makes the good news even sweeter if we’ve taken a hard look at the evil.

Moses concludes his 33 chapter sermon, blesses Israel, and goes up to Mt. Pisgah to be gathered to his fathers. (And buried by the Lord – how cool is that?!) Israel mourns for thirty days and then prepares to enter the Land promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. What a moment for the people! All the anticipation in the wilderness has led to this moment – let’s hope they remember God’s faithfulness and walk in obedience to his word!

Israel has come from the wilderness to the edge of the Promised Land. Moses has led well, but because he stole the glory of the Lord by saying he could bring water from the rock, he is not permitted to enter the Promised Land. So, here they all stand on the edge of the Jordan River … waiting for Moses to die so that they can possess the land. But before Moses is “gathered to his fathers,” he gives one last sermon – and that’s the book of Deuteronomy. Here’s a quick outline of the book to help you locate yourself as we read this week:

  1. Looking backward (chs. 1-3)
  2. Encouragement to covenant faithfulness (chs. 4-11)
  3. Covenant rules stipulations (chs. 12-26)
  4. Blessings and Curses, Covenant renewal (chs. 27-30)
  5. Looking forward (chs. 31-34)
