Never Alone Bible Reading Challenge

When life is as dysfunctional for us as it was for Jacob, there is one thing we can remember above all else. God is with us. He has never left us alone and he is ALWAYS with us.   What if we allowed that concept to sink into our hearts for a month through reading this promise in his word?

“Go back where I brought you from.” These are the words Jacob heard from God in Genesis 31. As I read them this week, I thought about all that Jacob had been through up to this point. How God had blessed him. Jacob’s discovery of love, marriage, and family while walking the journey of faith. He was successful and blessed with skill in caring for livestock and God used those skills to make him a wealthy man. But now,Jacob’s family members are gossiping and grumbling about his success, so God tells him to return to his homeland.

Can you imagine the fear that strikes Jacob’s heart? The reason he left his homelandwas because his own brother wanted to kill him. Who wants to go back home to face that scenario? And we think reality tv is interesting. But I love that God didn’t tell him “Go back to where you came from.” No, he says “Go back to where I brought you from.” You see, God wanted Jacob  to remember that HE is the one who brought Jacob out of his homeland safely. And HE would be the one to return Jacob safely. He says:

Return to the land of your fathers and to your kindred, and I will be with you. Genesis 31:38

I will be with you. 

When life is as dysfunctional for us as it was for Jacob, there is one thing we can remember above all else. God is with us. He has never left us alone and he is ALWAYS with us.

What if we allowed that concept to sink into our hearts for a month through reading this promise in his word?

Never Alone Bible Reading Challenge

Welcome to the Never Alone Bible reading challenge! If you’ve never joined a Bible reading challenge here before, each day we follow the plan and read the passage. You can share what you are learning on social media or just keep it between you and God. My goal through the reading is to draw closer to Jesus, and I want that for you too!

For this month, we will use the hashtags #neveralone and #biblereading. Almost every day, I post on Instagram or Facebook about what I’m learning through the passages and sometimes I post the Bible journaling pages I work on throughout the study.

On Fridays, I post a summary of what I learned through the week here on the blog and invite you to share what God is teaching you in the comments.

Additional/Optional Bible Reading Challenge Features

Bible Journaling

As you may know, I’ve been working on learning to Bible journal a little art and since you’ve been asking, I’ve got a FANTASTIC tool to help us both consistently read God’s Word, study it, meditate on it, and enjoy it. Use this Bible Journaling Guide to process the Bible reading through your choice of journal writing, art, or both.

I am looking forward to become more aware that the Lord is WITH ME each day this month! Thank you so much for encouraging me to dig into God’s Word each and every month as we continue to learn his word and apply it in our daily lives.

Who’s ready? I didn’t give you much time to prepare, but there’s not much to do. See you tomorrow for Day 1!

By his grace,

Rachel

    # Trust – Faith many of us love God, and have hope through faith that God will do what He said He will do but however 50% of God’s children trust Him and the rest are filled with doubt . I thank you for this scripture it has pushed me to the point where I need to go back and trust God.
