Survey Bible Reading Plan Day 4

Today’s reading assignment is Leviticus 1, 10, 16, and 25 you can click Here to read it. Yesterday we read about the Passover, the exodus, the crossing of the Red Sea and, of course, let’s not forget the Ten Commandments. You can click Here to read all about it.

I found the section about the Passover and all the restrictions to be terribly difficult to read, but it would have been even more difficult to keep track of them all, I can only imagine. Although this is something they did yearly, so after the first few times I am sure it was just second nature, but can you imagine if you forgot something along the way. Often when I read something like this I thank the LORD that we no longer live under the law but under Grace.

I so love reading about how Moses stretched out his hands and the waters separated. Trying to imagine what that would have looked like, could they see sea creatures swimming behind those walls of water? And could they reach out and put their hands through those walls and not get sucked in? These are things my mind thinks of when I let it go to far without a leash.

The last section we read about was the Ten Commandments, and these are so precious to me, when I read over them I can’t help but wonder what the people thought when Moses came down off that mountain and presented these laws to them. I know what the Bible says about what they did, but I am wondering what they must have thought.

Today’s inspirational quote is:

If you have great challenges, have greater faith.
- Leinani Kamaka

Please feel free to leave me a comment or two and let me know how it is going for you. May God’s face shine upon you as you pass this way, and may He give you joy so abundant that you are forced to give some away.

I have found over the years bible reading plans to be useless for me. I like to meditate through books a paragraph at a time, and meditate through the bible that way about every three years.

The plans are good for some, the idea of course is that we need to be in the word!
