Lesson 2

Q: What is the secret to personal Bible study

A: Asking God to give you the desire to learn from His Word is a major key in personal Bible study. Also, praying for wisdom to find something that works for you is a major step.

No method is perfect all the time, so using different aids throughout the changing seasons of life is a good thing. Recognizing when it’s time to try something different is important, but reminding yourself that that method isn’t worthless and you are not a failure for needing to change is also important. As long as you have the desire and continue asking God for His help, you will find what works for you. 

Here are some examples of what I have done through the years and some that I may need to try in the future:

  • Memorizing a new Bible verse(s) each week (I would write them on sticky notes and put them on mirrors, windows, or the refrigerator so I could see them several times a day and take a few minutes to memorize.)
  • Creating a Bible journal with verses that covered different struggles such as anger, anxiousness, discouragement, depression, fear, etc. (I used these first two methods when the boys were little because the boys required a lot of time and neither of these methods took long periods of time to accomplish. As the Bible journal collection grew, I spent more time using it as a resource, especially when I was struggling with one of the topics or needed to encourage someone else.)
  • Using a guide to help you read the Bible within a year (Although I don’t recommend this as something to do many years in a row, it can be a great place to start. Because it doesn’t always lead to deeper studies, you may need to take two or more years so that you can stop and reflect on – or study out – what you just read.)
  • Reading a paragraph or two then looking up words I didn’t understand (in a Hebrew/Greek exhaustive concordance or Bible dictionary) and writing out the meaning 
  • Asking my husband questions when I read something I didn’t understand (I still do this one.) 1 Corinthians 14:35
  • Sharing what you’ve learned with someone else. Whether it’s with your spouse, children, other family members, Bible study group, or friends, sharing helps you retain what you learn and will possibly inspire them to study on their own. Preparing to teach a Bible class is one of the best ways to learn!
  • Taking an online Bible class (I have gone through Sunset International Bible Institute and learned so much! It is challenging!)
  • Tools I have used often: ReadScripture app (contains videos and reading the Bible in a year guide), Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance, Bible Project videos, Fourfold Gospel, and mainly a Bible, pencil and paper

Some of these examples lasted several years, some only a few months, but all of them have been helpful on my journey!
