Praise Him Anyway Bible Reading Summary Week 1

I know- it's not Friday! What am I thinking doing a weekly summary on Monday? Well, life got a little crazy last week. Children had unexpected needs and unanticipated repairs came up. When I was preparing the reading plan for this month, I felt the Spirit telling me to be prepared. Because when you encourage thousands of people to praise God in spite of the enemy, you are sure to encounter spiritual warfare.

Because when you encourage thousands of people to praise God in spite of the enemy, you are sure to encounter spiritual warfare.

Satan has surely been throwing darts my way. Taylor, my special needs daughter, had a rough week last week physically, we’re still walking on subfloor in the kitchen, and yesterday the dishwasher stopped working. Those are just a few of the problems our family is encountering. Last night I sat down and cried. I know- over a silly dishwasher. But if you saw the calendar this week and the list of my responsibilities, you might have cried too. However, the Lord met me this morning in one of today’s verses, Psalm 56:9,

This I know, that God is for me.

And with that, I knew that in spite of being late, this Bible reading challenge is needed this month. So I’m posting the Praise Him Anyway Bible reading summary week 1 that was due on Friday and giving God the praise for being the Avenger who makes all wrongs right! Check out last week’s reading.

Acts 16:16-40

Unleashing our praise results in unlocking the chains!! What are we going to praise God for today in spite of the circumstances? #praisehimanyway#biblereading

Psalm 7:10-17

I will give to the LORD the thanks due to his righteousness... praise and thanks are a couple. When we forget to give thanks, then praising doesn't naturally appear either. What are we thanking God for today? #praisehimanyway#biblereading

Psalm 30:1-12

You restored me to life from among those who go down to the pit. Jesus, today I praise you for giving me life anew. Even when I turned away from you, you chased after me. I praise you for loving me and giving your life for me. I praise you for any good I've done because I know it is your work in me, not my own. May my heart continue to praise you today and my lips be ready to join in at any moment, no matter what the day holds. Because you are worthy of praise regardless of my temporary circumstances. Amen!!#praisehimanyway #biblereading

Deuteronomy 10:12-22

You witnessed a miracle and thought "No one but God could do that." Then life moved on and some crazy circumstance reentered, disheartening you to the core. Today I'm pausing to remember a few of those miracles and I'm praising him for his mighty works! Join me? #praisehimanyway#biblereading

Alright, Friends. Keep reading and keep praising! I knew I would be personally challenged by this month’s reading, but I’m determined to press on. Happy Monday and I’ll see you tomorrow!

By his grace,

Rachel

  1. Yes I am feeling like I am torn in many directions this week too ,but thanks to you I have encouragement to go on! My son is special needs and after being homeschooled for the past two years he decided he wanted to give high school a shot.We were on our way out the door to register him and lost his birth certificate! Thank the Lord that Turner was in public school in 6th grade because we were allowed to register him today. After searching for three and a half hours his birth certificate was never found,but I put out a prayer request to all my friends family and loved ones . I pray that your week gets easier too Rachel <3

    1. Thank you, Angie! Praying that God leads you to where that birth certificate is!

  2. Lifting you up in prayer this week Rachel, love your work and this bible challenge is certainly giving me something to think about this month!
    Praise the Lord, for He is GOOD!
    Praise the Lord, for He IS good!

    I usually recite Psalm 135:1 with the first emphasis, but this week I tried out saying it with the second emphasis (my son is doing a poetry unit for English, so syllable emphasis is on my mind 🙂 !) it changes the whole tone of the line!

    Have a great week, God Bless!

  3. Thank you, Lord for never giving up on me, even when it feels the entire world has. I can always find comfort in knowing that no matter what……..YOU will always love me, and are faithful to meeting our needs! I love You, with all of my heart, soul, mind and body!

  4. Thank you Rachel for this months plan. The enemy does attack when we get close to God and praise Him through our trials but we have victory in Christ! Blessings.

  5. Wow! Just what I needed this morning! Thank you Father!!
    Such Beautiful words of encouragement from Gods word! Thank you for your ministry!!

  6. Acts 16:16-40 reminded me the community is watching my reaction to my “chains”….the prisoners were watching, and the community benefited in the results of the praising.

    Thank you. I really needed those words of encouragement & challenge today, not Friday. God’s timing is perfect.
