Create a Bible Reading Plan for 2024!!!

As we enter the New Year, it is important that we prioritize God's Word so that we can mature into the purpose God has for us. Creating a bible reading plan can help to develop consistency as well as increase understanding so that you can succeed!!!

 

 

 

 How Do You Create A Bible Reading Plan?

Step 1: Define Your Goals

Before creating a Bible reading plan, determine your goals. Are you looking to read the entire Bible, focus on specific themes, or study particular books? Understanding your objectives will guide the structure of your plan.

Step 2: Choose a Duration

Decide how long you want your reading plan to last. Common durations include a year, six months, or a specific season. Choosing a timeframe will help you allocate readings accordingly.

Step 3: Divide the Bible

Divide the Bible into manageable sections based on your chosen duration. You can follow a chronological order, split it into Old and New Testaments, or group books thematically. This division will form the basis of your daily or weekly readings.

Step 4: Set a Reading Frequency

Determine how often you want to read the Bible. Common frequencies include daily, five times a week, or weekly. Adjust the frequency based on your schedule and the amount of time you want to dedicate to each reading session.

Step 5: Create a Schedule

Allocate readings to specific days or weeks. Be mindful of variations in book length and complexity. If you're using a year-long plan, consider incorporating breaks or catch-up days to account for busy periods.

Step 6: Use Reading Plans Apps or Resources

Take advantage of various apps and online resources that offer pre-designed reading plans. Platforms like YouVersion, BibleGateway, and others provide a variety of plans that cater to different preferences and goals.

Step 7: Customize Your Plan

If you're using a pre-existing plan, feel free to customize it. Add or remove readings, adjust durations, or modify the order to better align with your goals and preferences.

Step 8: Consider Supplementary Resources

Enhance your reading plan with supplementary resources. This could include study guides, commentaries, or additional readings that provide context and insights into the passages you're studying.

Step 9: Establish Accountability

Consider sharing your plan with a friend or joining a Bible study group to create a sense of accountability. Discussing your readings with others can provide valuable perspectives and encouragement.

Step 10: Be Flexible

Life can be unpredictable, and you may miss readings occasionally. Be flexible and willing to adjust your plan as needed. The goal is consistent engagement, not rigid adherence.

Step 11: Reflect and Adjust

Regularly reflect on your reading experience. Assess what's working well and what could be improved. Adjust your plan accordingly to keep it fresh and aligned with your spiritual journey.

Matthew 4:4
But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

Day 2: God's Presence

Joshua 1:9: "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."

Psalm 139:7-10: "Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence?"

 

Day 3: Cast Your Cares

Day 5: Prayer for Peace

Philippians 4:4-9: "Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice... And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Psalm 55:22: "Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved."

 

Day 6: Trust in the Lord

Proverbs 3:5-6: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths."

Isaiah 41:10: "Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."

 

Day 7: Rest in God's Promises

Psalm 23: "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want... Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me."

Matthew 11:28-30: Jesus' invitation to find rest in Him.

Thank you so much for this Brittany Rose. I started a plan before but felt stuck along the way due to my job. I’ll definitely incorporate catch-up days for my busy schedule henceforth.
God bless you!

This is something I’ve actually been struggling with for a while, I keep starting the year with goals to be more frequent with my bible but end up losing track by February. Some of the goals you’ve highlighted ( specifically the first three) are actually a very good baseline to do, as I would jump straight into it with one board goal and a bunch of reminders. So actually starting a good baseline should help a lot. THANKS!
