30 minutes. 30 days. 30 passages.
Here is the challenge: spend 30 minutes each day, for 30 days, in 30 Bible passages. Over the next 30 days I will post passages, along with different questions and ways to meet with God.
I think as we do this for 30 days it will more likely become a habit and natural part of our life in the days to follow. We will see God at work as He shapes us- His values becoming our values. We will grow to care for the things He cares about, and have more of an eternal perspective. In the process we will grow in our intimacy with Him. This is the transformation we all need and want to see!
I encourage you to take the challenge for 30 days as a lauching pad for consistency or as a fresh change in your routine!
But first read the introduction in yesterday’s post – Making Time for what Matters Most
1The heavens are telling of the glory of God;
And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.
2 Day to day pours forth speech,
And night to night reveals knowledge.
3 There is no speech, nor are there words;
Their voice is not heard.
4 Their line has gone out through all the earth,
And their utterances to the end of the world.
In them He has placed a tent for the sun,
5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber;
It rejoices as a strong man to run his course.
6 Its rising is from one end of the heavens,
And its circuit to the other end of them;
And there is nothing hidden from its heat.
7 The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul;
The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
8 The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart;
The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever;
The judgments of the Lord are true; they are righteous altogether.
10 They are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold;
Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb.
11 Moreover, by them Your servant is warned;
In keeping them there is great reward.
12 Who can discern his errors? Acquit me of hidden faults.
13 Also keep back Your servant from presumptuous sins;
Let them not rule over me;
Then I will be blameless,
And I shall be acquitted of great transgression.
14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
Be acceptable in Your sight,
O Lord, my rock and my Redeemer.

- What do you learn about: God? His Word? People?
- How does this touch your life?
- What is your take-away? (How do you hope it will influence you and your life with others?)
- Keep a journal during this 30 day challenge and journal today your response to the following question: “What keeps me from going deeper with God?”
