Challenge Week 1

Posted in: Challenges

Welcome to challenge week!  We are so excited for what is taking place this week!  Together, at OHT, we want to challenge you and each other to be both in and of the Word.  One way we do this is through our challenge weeks.  This week, our challenge to you is to read the Bible every day this week.  That means SEVEN DAYS in a row.

Below is a suggested reading plan as to how to break apart Psalm 119 to be read over the course of seven days.  This plan is just a suggestion, and it can be broken apart into smaller or larger sections depending on what this time needs to look like for you.

The same method for day one is the same method for days two through seven.

Day 1: Psalm 119: 1-24

  • Start with prayer and invite God in to be a part of your time in the Word. Ask Him to help you understand the text and for you to learn more about Him through it.
  • Read Psalm 119:1-24.
  • Read it again! Repetition is key.
  • Look up the definitions of 3-5 significant words (even if you already “know” the definitions), and write them down.
  • Look up cross-references. Take note of how the verses connect and help the text make more sense.
  • Compare different versions of scripture.  Download an app that allows you to read different versions of scripture next to each other (like Blue Letter Bible), and take note of any differences you see in the ESV version to the NIV.  Write down anything that stands out or helps shed light on something in a new way.
  • Finish with prayer and thank God for His Word.
  • Reflect on throughout the day: Did the text reveal

Any sin I need to confess?

A promise to claim?

An example to follow?

A command to obey?

Any knowledge to believe?
