Delighting in the Law of the Lord

Many Christians take an opportunity prior to the beginning of a new year to evaluate their Bible reading habits and spiritual disciplines, and then make necessary changes or begin a Bible reading plan.

"Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers," Psalm 1:1-3.

For your convenience, we’ve compiled a list of Bible reading plans from our friends around the internet for you to choose from. Maybe in 2018 you will read more of the Bible each day. Perhaps you’ll slow down your reading and instead spend more time considering what you read. Whatever it is you’re looking for in a reading plan, you should find it below. Whatever you do, do it with joy and delight!
