Bible in 90 Days - Day 2

This morning I read Genesis 17 through 28. Today's reading felt so short compared to yesterday's 16 chapters.

One passage spoke to me:

Abraham had sent his servant to Nahor to find Isaac a wife. When the servant arrived, he prayed to God that he would be able to pick out the right woman to be Isaac's wife.

And it came to pass, before he had done speaking,
that, behold, Rebekah came out...

Genesis 24:15.

Not only did God answer the servant's prayer, it was answered before he was finished praying. I know this idea is repeated several times in Scripture but this is the first example Scripture covers. Before I finish praying, God has already heard my prayer.

That is neat that you are reading the bible in 90 days....

A few (about 12) in our church (including two of my sisters and I) are reading it in 60 days. Dec.1-Jan 31. That makes it 19 chapters in one day! :)

Susannah, thanks for your comment! That's great that you are reading the Bible in 60 days. I think that would be very doable, though I may rethink that opinion once I reach Leviticus and Numbers! I am loving reading Genesis so quickly, though. It's really interesting.
