Easy Daily Bible Study
As you yearn to be closer to God and get a better understanding of His word and the relationship to your life, begin to read the Bible. A great way to start is to begin reading scriptures daily to lift your spirit and strengthen your faith walk. It is easy to begin a simple Bible Study by reading from Psalm and Proverbs daily. Psalm is a book of praise and Proverbs will give you wisdom to live by.
Read a chapter daily from Psalm and Proverb that matches the date. This will take discipline to set aside a specific time daily. It only takes a few minutes but unless you mark time in your schedule it will be easy to “not have time”. I read the scriptures first thing in the morning as I am getting my day started over a cup of coffee and when possible I like to sit outside to absorb the sun rays and give God praise for the marvelous things of nature. It is easy to read the Word while eating breakfast, or while you are brushing your teeth or before you get out of bed. You could choose to read Psalm in the morning and Proverbs in the evening if that is easier. The most important thing is to read the Word daily. The repetition of the verses monthly will allow the Word to sink in and allow you to bring up scriptures from your memory and spirit to be able to handle situations day to day.
Once you are disciplined to find time and begin reading the Word it is going to take a commitment to continue to do it daily and not allow others to change your schedule. Turn off your phone for the few minutes it takes and allow yourself quiet time to meditate on what you read.
Pick out just one thought each day out of Psalm and Proverbs and concentrate on the principle idea and how it applies to your life. Ask God to help you and give you wisdom with deeper understanding. The following month when you read the chapter over pick a different idea to meditate on. It is amazing that every time you read the chapter month after month you will see something different as the Word becomes more real to you.
Bible study along with lining up your spirit, body and mind to the Word is the key piece to getting closer to God. The point of reading the Bible is to have a proper understanding of God’s will and His way for your life. This for some can be a total transformation for others some adjustments or corrections to their daily lives. Ask God for His help and strength to make the necessary changes.
Now that you are getting started think about a friend, family member or co-worker to begin this undertaking as well. This will give you someone to discuss and share the principles you are learning every day. Feel free to use this new found wisdom in your conversations to assist those around you. You never know, you just might start a new Bible study group.
