Go deeper in the Word: 5 simple ways to improve your Bible study || Read For Free


Joshua 1:8 (NLT) reads, "Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. 
Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do."

You may have heard this verse before, yet you are unsure exactly how to follow through on it. Here are 5 tips organised by praisejamzblog.com 
to help you delve into that thick book that's been 
sitting on your nightstand for a while.
 
 
1) Just read it: You don't need to start at a specific book in the Bible. Even if you have to pick one out of the table of contents, just read! And before you go digging for deeper meanings and cross- references, complete a chapter. That's the first step. Then go back over it and begin studying for more revelation.

2) Pray for revelation:
How do you get revelation or greater insight?  James 1:5 (NIV) says, "If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you." If you don't understand, don't be too embarrassed or ashamed to send up a prayer for wisdom. After all, God, who authored the book using the hands of willing vessels, is the one who can best illuminate its meaning for you.

3) Read commentaries: It's never bad to look to others who study the Bible for help (although you should first read the Word for yourself). Oftentimes, a trusted biblical scholar can give us insight into the Bible, or at least explain and elaborate on small points and lessons you may not have noticed before.

4) Ask questions: Don't be afraid to say, hey, I don’t get it. Questioning something in the Bible, or seeking clarity about God’s nature and actions, is a good thing. Your faith will be strengthened as you gain a greater understanding of how He works. In Matthew 18:3, Jesus tells us to "become like little children". And children ask lots of questions, don’t they? If you’re wondering about something, ask your pastor, or you can always go to Christian websites such as GotQuestions.org, or watch a video in which a theologian addresses your query.

5) Download the Bible App.: If you don't have it already, you should download it! Not only is the Bible easily accessible at all times on your phone, you can also read it in several different translations. Translations such as the English Standard Version (ESV) or New International Version (NIV) make reading the Bible less of a puzzling experience. We can't all read the King James Version (KJV) and understand.
