Bible in 90 Days ~ Week 2

Well, week two began by finishing Genesis and beginning Exodus. As I read Exodus, I saw how deeply God loves his people and how he used Moses to relocate his beloved people back to their land that God had given to them. I watched as God fed them spiritually through Moses, and how he literally provided their food (manna fell like rain) and water from a rock  during their journey through the wilderness.  And how God defeated the Egyptians when he had Moses part the Red (reed) Sea for safe passage of the Israelites on a dry sea floor and when they were on the other side with the Egyptians chasing them, how God brought the water together again by the way of Moses!

We all should have that kind of faith and trust in God as Moses had. I do think we (believers) have a certain amount of trust in God, some of us more trust than not, but I think we are reserved at times in our trust in God. Faith, there is no question but trust?, yes, I think we sometimes fail in the trust department. We need to just let go and trust  him.

The book of Exodus is also where the Law is introduced to God’s people through Moses.

TheEvidenceBible

In The Evidence Bible, there are in depth commentaries, questions & objections, quotes and extra resources to help us better understand God’s word. It is so easy to read and understand.

As of this post, I am on chapter 10 in Leviticus and I am only a week into my challenge! I should be reading 20 pages a day, however because of the ease in reading the text, I am reading far more than 20 pages a day. I have never accomplished that much reading of the scripture than I have with The Evidence Bible. I am finding that this version of the bible also helps to keep the readers interest on “high”.

Now, onto the giveaway!!!

Let me first say”Thank You” to all who have entered this giveaway and that I was planning to giveaway one bible every few weeks during the next 90 days but after beginning to read this version of the bible, I couldn’t help but think how much you all might want to journey along with me so, I have decided to give them all out now so that you might join me when I get to the Psalms, which I think will be in about a week and a half to two weeks! Just enough time for your books to get to you Smile So….. I would like to congratulate our 5 winners, and they are….
