Monthly Bible Reading Plan ~ August

This month of August is very special to my husband and I. We celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary on the 1st. We still stand in awe and wonder at how God has totally and completely changed our lives.🙌🙌
 
And we have BIG NEWS! 🎉🎊
 
We have had some incredible developments as of late and we want to honor God with our time and attention because of His love and provision. Before I explain further, let me just let you all in on a few of those developments. :)
 
My son is changing curriculum and umbrella schools (we homeschool), and because of this, there is some extra work involved for my husband and I over the next week or so.
 
We celebrate our first year of marriage.
 
I was accepted into Florida Southern Bible College & Theological Seminary, so I will be preparing for my first semester of seminary (I still can't believe this)! It's been 10 years since I was in a class room, so if you feel so inclined, I could use some prayer. 🥰
 
As I said before, we want to honor God with our time and attention because of His love and provision. My husband and I are going on a 40 day fast and are including all forms of electronics and social media (except for email and phone as these are forms of communication, however, they will be used sparingly).
 
This is something we have been thinking about for some time. While the Bible says not to tell anyone, we feel it necessary to let you all know why you will not be seeing any updates from us until September 10th.
 
We know God is going to do something amazing as we step into this new season! During our fast, you will find:
 
  • Any orders placed will be fulfilled as stated on the product page
  • Monthly Bible Reading Plans and weekly newsletters will continue
  • Daily Verses and Monthly Bible Reading Plan will still be shared daily on our Facebook page.
  • Prayer Requests will continue to be taken
  • If you are someone that reads our Insta Stories, you will find that the verse of the day will not be back until September 10th. **We apologize for any inconvenience this causes you and hope you understand.**
 
We are praying for each and every one of you. If you have any specific prayer requests, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at: support@theartofprayer.net
 
We can't wait to share more about what is going on in our lives with you in September! 💕💖💓
 
As for this month's reading plan, I am sharing the wisdom and insight that I have been learning from my Pastor at church. You will notice very little insight provided for each verse and this is because I wanted to keep it simple and let God's word simply speak for itself. If we listen to Him, there is nothing we need to add. I have included very simplistic notes and plan on going over who God is in greater detail in subsequent months.
 
I hope you enjoy this month's theme of Who is God. We will continue throughout the month of September as well! 💜

Don't forget to let us know your favorite scripture for this month in the comments below! 😃

Daily Reading: The Lord merely spoke, and the heavens were created. He breathed the word, and all the stars were born. He assigned the sea its boundaries and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs.

The voice of the Lord splits the mighty cedars; the Lord shatters the cedars of Lebanon. He makes Lebanon’s mountains skip like a calf; he makes Mount Hermon leap like a young wild ox. The voice of the Lord strikes with bolts of lightning. The voice of the Lord makes the barren wilderness quake; the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.

God has made a home in the heavens for the sun. ~ Psalms 19:1‭-‬4 NLT

Day 14

Poster - Monthly Bible Reading Plan ~ August

Daily Reading: “But true wisdom and power are found in God; counsel and understanding are his. What he destroys cannot be rebuilt. When he puts someone in prison, there is no escape. If he holds back the rain, the earth becomes a desert. If he releases the waters, they flood the earth. Yes, strength and wisdom are his; deceivers and deceived are both in his power. He leads counselors away, stripped of good judgment; wise judges become fools. He removes the royal robe of kings. They are led away with ropes around their waist. He leads priests away, stripped of status; he overthrows those with long years in power. He silences the trusted adviser and removes the insight of the elders. He pours disgrace upon princes and disarms the strong. “He uncovers mysteries hidden in darkness; he brings light to the deepest gloom. He builds up nations, and he destroys them. He expands nations, and he abandons them. He strips kings of understanding and leaves them wandering in a pathless wasteland. They grope in the darkness without a light. He makes them stagger like drunkards. ~ Job 12:13‭-‬25 NLT

Insight: “God has dominion over the affairs of people. He is interested in our decisions as well as helping us make them.” ~ Pastor Jamie Jones

Day 16

Poster - Monthly Bible Reading Plan ~ August

Daily Reading: You lay out the rafters of your home in the rain clouds. You make the clouds your chariot; you ride upon the wings of the wind. The winds are your messengers; flames of fire are your servants. You placed the world on its foundation so it would never be moved. You clothed the earth with floods of water, water that covered even the mountains. At your command, the water fled; at the sound of your thunder, it hurried away. Mountains rose and valleys sank to the levels you decreed. Then you set a firm boundary for the seas, so they would never again cover the earth. You make springs pour water into the ravines, so streams gush down from the mountains. They provide water for all the animals, and the wild donkeys quench their thirst. The birds nest beside the streams and sing among the branches of the trees. You send rain on the mountains from your heavenly home, and you fill the earth with the fruit of your labor. You cause grass to grow for the livestock and plants for people to use. You allow them to produce food from the earth— wine to make them glad, olive oil to soothe their skin, and bread to give them strength. The trees of the Lord are well cared for— the cedars of Lebanon that he planted. There the birds make their nests, and the storks make their homes in the cypresses. High in the mountains live the wild goats, and the rocks form a refuge for the hyraxes. You made the moon to mark the seasons, and the sun knows when to set. You send the darkness, and it becomes night, when all the forest animals prowl about. Then the young lions roar for their prey, stalking the food provided by God. At dawn they slink back into their dens to rest. Then people go off to their work, where they labor until evening. O Lord , what a variety of things you have made! In wisdom you have made them all. The earth is full of your creatures. Here is the ocean, vast and wide, teeming with life of every kind, both large and small. See the ships sailing along, and Leviathan, which you made to play in the sea. They all depend on you to give them food as they need it. When you supply it, they gather it. You open your hand to feed them, and they are richly satisfied. But if you turn away from them, they panic. When you take away their breath, they die and turn again to dust. When you give them your breath, life is created, and you renew the face of the earth. May the glory of the Lord continue forever! The Lord takes pleasure in all he has made! The earth trembles at his glance; the mountains smoke at his touch. ~ Psalms 104:3‭-‬32 NLT

Insight: “The Creator looks after His creation!” ~ Pastor Jamie Jones

Day 17

Daily Reading: Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. ~ Ephesians 3:20 NLT

Insight: “Everything is infinite to God, and all of it is under His control.” ~ Pastor Jamie Jones 

Day 18

Poster - Monthly Bible Reading Plan ~ August

Daily Reading: So you must live as God’s obedient children. Don’t slip back into your old ways of living to satisfy your own desires. You didn’t know any better then. But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy. For the Scriptures say, “You must be holy because I am holy.” ~ 1 Peter 1:14‭-‬16 NLT

Insight: “We are the expression of the holiness of God. God demands exclusivity!” ~ Pastor Jamie Jones

Day 19

Poster - Monthly Bible Reading Plan ~ August

Daily Reading: Then Joshua warned the people, “You are not able to serve the Lord, for he is a holy and jealous God. He will not forgive your rebellion and your sins. ~ Joshua 24:19 NLT

Insight: “The standard of conduct is not mandated by the church. The standard of holiness is defined by God, not man. God is Holy!” ~ Pastor Jamie Jones

Day 20

Poster - Monthly Bible Reading Plan ~ August

Daily Reading: They were calling out to each other, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of Heaven’s Armies! The whole earth is filled with his glory!” Their voices shook the Temple to its foundations, and the entire building was filled with smoke. Then I said, “It’s all over! I am doomed, for I am a sinful man. I have filthy lips, and I live among a people with filthy lips. Yet I have seen the King, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.” ~ Isaiah 6:3‭-‬5 NLT

sight: “A glimpse of God's holiness will put our lives into proper perspective & cause us to rethink our commitment & dedication. God's holiness is the currency of faith & conduct.” ~ Pastor Jamie Jones 

Day 21

Poster - Monthly Bible Reading Plan ~ August

Daily Reading: Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” ~ John 8:31‭-‬32 NLT

Insight: “With over 3,000 promises in the Bible,  God does not need to impress us so He doesn't speak about that which He does not mean. If God spoke it, you can rest assured He means it!” ~ Pastor Jamie Jones

Day 22

Poster - Monthly Bible Reading Plan ~ August

Daily Reading: Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow. ~ James 1:17 NLT

Day 23

Poster - Monthly Bible Reading Plan ~ August

Daily Reading: When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future. ~ John 16:13 NLT

Insight: “Confusion comes into our life when either we haven't yet found the truth, or we are unwilling to accept the truth. When we stray from the truth, the results are catastrophic.” ~ Pastor Jamie Jones

Day 24

Poster - Monthly Bible Reading Plan ~ August

Daily Reading: Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.  And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. ~ John 14:6‭, ‬16 NLT

Insight: “The “truth” Jesus is referring to here is to combat the lies of sin, religion & self-gratification. He loves us too much to leave us in sin.” ~ Pastor Jamie Jones

Day 25

Flyer - Monthly Bible Reading Plan ~ August

Daily Reading: Throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy. ~ Ephesians 4:22‭-‬24 NLT

Insight: “God is the demonstration of both true righteousness & holiness!” ~ Pastor Jamie Jones

Daily Reading: “For the time is coming,” says the Lord , “when I will raise up a righteous descendant from King David’s line. He will be a King who rules with wisdom. He will do what is just and right throughout the land. And this will be his name: ‘The Lord Is Our Righteousness.’ In that day Judah will be saved, and Israel will live in safety. ~ Jeremiah 23:5‭-‬6 NLT

Insight: “The Lord is Our Righteousness - Jehovah Tsidkenu … Jesus makes us righteous.” ~ Pastor Jamie Jones

Day 28

Poster - Monthly Bible Reading Plan ~ August

Daily Reading: Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. ~ Romans 8:35‭, ‬37‭-‬39 NLT

Insight: “God's love is sacrificial. Nothing can separate us from His love!” ~ Pastor Michelle Jones

Day 30
