MY UTMOST 2024 | Introduction

by | Jan 1, 2024

MY UTMOST 2018 starts January 1st! Join Joanna Weaver and friends for a year-long Bible and devotional reading challenge at

Happy New Year and Welcome to My Utmost 2024!

Today we begin an all-new Bible Reading Challenge…but this time we’re adding a daily entry from my favorite devotional, My Utmost for His Highest.

If you’d rather not read the devotional, that’s fine. You can focus on the chapter-a-day Bible reading instead.

But I have to tell you, reading My Utmost has been a huge blessing in my life and I’d like to invite you to journey with me through this inspiring book.

I hope you’ll join the beautiful Bible reading community that has gathered over at my FACEBOOK page.

Each day, we post the Bible reading assignment, and people leave comments about what spoke most to them in that day’s reading in the Bible and/or devotional.

I’d love to hear what God speaks to you!

Let’s Get Started…

If you haven’t already gathered the following resources, you’ll need:

  • Bible – a translation that you enjoy and understand
  • Devotional – Read My Utmost for His Highest ONLINE or purchase here:
  • FREE Bible & Devotional Reading Journal – sign up HERE

Each Sunday, we will post the weekly reading assignments on Facebook – (click links and “follow” to see posts). Here’s this week’s assignment…


BIBLE: Exodus 1 (see reading schedule)
MY UTMOST: January 1-6 (one entry each day)

Whether you are reading a chapter from the Bible or the daily entry from My Utmost for His Highest, or both, God has a word for you today!


1.      Before you begin, ask the Holy Spirit to remove any preconceived ideas or biases so that you can receive a fresh word from the Lord.

2.      Read the assigned scripture portion slowly until something speaks to you.

  •  In journal, write the verse(s) word-for-word, including the reference.
  • Write down how it impressed you.

3.      Do the same as you read the daily entry from My Utmost for His Highest.

  • If something stands out, write down the phrase word-for-word.
  • Respond to what you sense God saying.

4.      Take all of it to the Lord in prayer.

5.      Leave a comment at blog or in that day’s Facebook reading assignment thread:

  • For Bible response, note verse reference.
  • For devotional response, note entry’s date.
