2022 Bible Tribe: Word of the Day Bible Reading Plan is here!
It began with God impressing on my heart to help others to have consistent time in His word through a Bible Reading Plan a few years back and subsequently I attempted to do a Facebook Live each day from my time with Jesus in 2020. The premise was to have fresh manna each morning and to share it with others who also wanted accountability to be in God’s word daily. Only problem was, I ended up getting Melanoma and having surgery in March, then later that year COVID, which made it difficult to carry out the mission of every day showing up and being live on Facebook.
That first year God did amazing things in my heart and sometimes the devotions lasted 15-30 minutes!!! Our culture is so busy, and God’s word is often the last priority. To help get into God’s word more consistently, I changed the format of the Bible Tribe in 2021 to be broadcast on YouTube as well as podcasts, between 1-3 minutes long. This leaves time for you to get into God’s word and to get your own nuggets of revelation from Jesus. It also makes a way for me to pre-record in case life happens. Which, it usually does!
Structure your time with God however works best for you. Rise early or stay up late, but don’t miss encountering the One Who made you. Each day of life is a gift and a challenge. Walking with Christ enables us to live this life well for His glory.
The ©2020 Bible Tribe Journal focused on a verse of the day from the reading plan. This year, the ©2021 Bible Tribe Journal version is diving deeper into one word to focus on each day. Each word and verse are hand-selected and the journal pages have the verse and word of the day printed on the page corresponding with the Bible reading plan. The word study will examine the usage of a specific word in the Bible reading plan and look at cultural or contextual clues to help bring the word alive to us today in our context.
You are not alone, friend. Join the Bible Tribe in seeking God together! For further encouragement, you can hop over to the Bible Tribe Facebook Group where the Bible reading of the day is discussed: www.facebook.com/groups/thebibletribe.

Bible Reading: Genesis 1-4
Word of the day: Beginning - רֵאשִׁית (ray-sheeth')
Verse of the day: Gen 1:1, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth."
Day 2 - Joshua 1–4 Bible Tribe Reading PlanDo you want to be successful? There are no shortcuts to success, but there are some tips from God’s word in our reading today.
Bible Reading: Joshua 1–4
Word of the day: Success - שָׂכַל saw-kal'
Verse of the day is: Joshua 1:8, “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”
Day 3 - Isaiah 1–6 Bible Tribe Daily Bible Reading PlanI used to think that if one was a good person, they would go to Heaven. Romans 3:10 kind of put a damper on that. If nothing is good in us, how can we be righteous? Our righteousness is not our own, but freely given by our perfect God.
Bible Reading: Isaiah 1–6
Word of the day: Righteous - צַדִּיק (tsad-deek)
Verse of the day: Isaiah 3:10, “Tell the righteous it will be well with them, for they will enjoy the fruit of their deeds.”
Day 4 - Psalms 1–2 Bible Tribe Daily Bible Reading PlanWhen this world sucks the life out of me, I know where my help comes from. There is an inner delight within my own mind that trumps this life. Delight is so much more than just mere satisfaction.
Bible Reading: Psalms 1–2
Word of the day: Delight - חֵפֶץ (khay'-fets)
Verse of the day: Psalm1:2, "But they delight in the law of the LORD, meditating on it day and night."
Day 5 - Job 1–2 Bible Tribe Daily Bible Reading PlanEver had someone place the blame on you? Our natural instinct is to shift that blame, right? Like a hot potato. But those who are in Christ are truly blameless.
Bible Reading: Job 1–2
Word of the day: Blameless - תָּם (tawm)
Verse of the day: Job 1:1 “He was blameless—a man of complete integrity. He feared God and stayed away from evil.”
Day 6 - Matthew 1–2 Bible Tribe Daily Bible Reading PlanAre you a worshiper? Short answer—yes. We all worship something or someone every day. But we were made to worship One.
Bible Reading: Matthew 1–2
Word of the day: Worshiped - προσκυνέω (proskynéō)
Verse of the day is: Matthew 2:11 "And going into the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh."
Day 7 - Romans 1–2 Bible Tribe Daily Bible Reading PlanWhatcha thinking? Some say we think over 70,000 thoughts a day. Who knows? But this I know: Our thoughts determine the course of our lives and they matter.
Bible Reading: Romans 1–2
Word of the day: Reprobate - ἀδόκιμος (ad-ok'-ee-mos)
Verse of the day: Romans 1:28 "And even as they refused to have God in their knowledge, God gave them up unto a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not fitting."
Day 8 - Genesis 5–8 Bible Tribe Daily Bible Reading PlanSome people try to deny that God created the world. But creation did not happen by chance. Chance has no power. And creation is not an accident. It is an incredible example of God’s power and sovereignty. And a matter of faith. Those who believe the world just appeared out of thin air have more faith than those who believe Scripture but what they are putting their faith in cannot save them.
Bible Reading: Genesis 5–8
Word of the day: Created - בָּרָא (baw-raw)
Verse of the day: Genesis 5:1 "This is the book of the generations of Adam. When God created man, he made him in the likeness of God."
Day 9 - Joshua 5–8 Bible Tribe Bible Reading PlanBeing encouraged in a discouraging world is hard and it is a fight. But when our God is for us and with us and in us, we can rise to the challenge and walk in Christ’s strength.
Bible Reading: Joshua 5–8
Word of the day: Discouraged - חָתַת (khaw-thath').
Verse of the day: Joshua 8:1(a) "Then the LORD said to Joshua, “Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged."
Day 10 - Isaiah 7–12 Bible Tribe Daily Bible Reading PlanSometimes it is not until our back is pressed up against a wall that we see just how much we need God. And perhaps it is then that we are also better able to hear Him.
Bible Reading: Isaiah 7–12
Word of the day: Sign - אוֹת (oth).
Verse of the day: Isaiah 7:14, "Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and she will name Him Immanuel."
Day 11- Psalms 3–4 Bible Tribe Daily Bible Reading PlanBible Reading: Psalms 3–4
Word of the day: Meditate - אָמַר (aw-mar').
Verse of the day: Psalm 4:4 "Tremble with fear and do not sin! Meditate as you lie in bed, and repent of your ways!"
Day 12 - Job 3–4 Bible Tribe Daily Bible Reading PlanWhy? This question is one of those unrelenting questions we have. But sometimes letting go of our need to know why helps us to understand God’s purposes together.
Bible Reading: Job 3–4
Word of the day: Why? It is the Hebrew word: מָה (maw).
Verse of the day: Job 3:11 “Why did I not perish at birth, and die as I came from the womb?”
