I want to read God’s Word everyday. I may not get to blog everyday, and that’s a bummer for me, since I love blogging! However, blogging will always take second place to my own devotional time. I not only want to read God’s Word, but also to study it, to break it down, memorize it, and meditate upon it. Through God’s Word, I can know my Savior like never before. I can read the Bible and walk away and forget it soon thereafter, but studying it helps ingrain His truths into my mind and heart. Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye. Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart. Prov. 7:2-3
I want to share these tips for studying God’s Word that I believe are really going to help me this year.

When you’re studying scripture ask yourself these three questions about the passage:
1. Observation: What does it say?
2. Interpretation: What does it mean?
3. Application: What do I do?

The next time I’m studying out a specific book of the Bible, or a topic, I am going to ask myself these questions. I thought this was a concise way to study God’s Word in our daily devotions.

May we know Him better this year than ever before!

Happy reading! :0)
