How to Study the Bible

by Apostle Tonya

Your words were found and I ate them,
And Your words became for me a joy and the delight of my heart; For I have been called by Your name, O Lord God of hosts.  Jeremiah 15:16

The most precious time spent with the Blessed Holy Spirit is during my study time.   It is in His Blessed Presence in the stillness whereby yields for me a deeper study and releases, The Feast.

In the Book of Psalms, chapter 46 verse 10, it is written:

“Be still and know that I am God..”

Here are 4 tips to Studying the Bible: 

Soaking 

Before you begin to read the Holy Bible it is best to soak with Holy Spirit and meditate on His Goodness.  The Word of God confirms that we should meditate:  “I will meditate in thy precepts and have respect unto thy ways.”  Psalm 119:25.   

Anointed worshiper, Julie True’ music was introduced to me back in 2014.  Today, her album, “Heaven’s Embrace” remains one of my most favorite albums to soak with the Holy Spirit. 

Pray 

As you are soaking with the Holy Spirit, pray and ask Him to grace you with discernment, understanding, wisdom, knowledge and revelation.  

Take authority over the atmosphere:  bind distractions and loose focus before you begin to read and study.  Matthew 18:18

Use a Journal 

Another item I adore are colorful journals. Journals are where I keep my most precious notes and letters that I write to thy Lord. They are also my first choice to record draft study notes.  

Be sure to have your favorite highlighters when you are studying and meditating on God’s Word.  

“Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.”  Proverbs 8:33

In His faithfulness, the Comforter will speak to you through the holy scriptures and you should be prepared for His instructions when He does.  

When thy Lord reveals to you the deep things to pray for as you are studying; remain faithful and pray scripturally. 

Use a Concordance
One of the most profound keys that thy Lord has revealed to me for a better understanding of the Word of God is a concordance.  If you do not own one, I recommend the purchase of:  “The Strong’s Expanded Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible”. 

But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.  Matthew 4:4

The Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
