This summer, I discovered an awesome little book called Every Word: A Reader’s 90-Day Guide to the Bible by Susan Goodwin, Jennifer Peterson, and Molly Sawyer. What I love about this book is that you read the Bible chronologically and enjoy what the authors call “[soaring] over the entire story in all its splendor.”
So I started on September 1st with their reading plan (it’s hefty but worth it). What I’ve most noticed so far is this theme: God answers us and is with His people.
This morning I read Jacob’s description of God is Genesis 35: 3 when he builds an altar to God. He says that God is the One “who answered me in the day of my distress and who has been with me wherever I have gone.” Yes! That’s who God is!
