How I Study And Worship
Thursday 30th January 2020 How I Study and Worship. Written By Manashantii
I read 5 Psalms, then 1 Proverb matching the date of the month, then 1 or 2 chapters in the New Testament and 1or 2 chapters in the Old Testament. So for example:- today I read the following :- Psalm 146-Psalm 150, then Proverbs 30 (because today is 30th of January) I follow on by reading 2 chapters in the Old Testament – for example Joshua 1 and Joshua 2( Old Testament book) I then read Luke 21 and Luke 22. (New Testament book)
So as you do this you will read all of the Psalms in a month (5 Psalms a day) You will read Proverbs in a month if you read 1 chapter of Proverbs a day (There are 31 chapters of Proverbs so you can do 1 Proverb a day) Then read :- 2 Old Testament chapters and 2 New Testament chapters, this will make you read all of the Holy Bible in a Year.

Listen quietly to God. Christian Meditation is hearing from God during silent reflection after reading the Holy Bible or Silent reflection after prayer. I prefer to use the term silent reflection to separate confusion from other religious and worldly meditations. Quiet your heart and mind, silent listening helps you to hear voice of God.
