“Expand Your Knowledge”
Developing an understanding of God’s Word is a lifelong endeavor. It won’t just happen overnight. But there are certain approaches which can nurture a more comprehensive understanding. Here are a few thoughts:
1 – Obtain some tools. There are several types of study aids available which can help you better understand what you’re reading. For example, there are Study Bibles, concordances, and topical study guides both online and hardcopy.
2 – Get involved in a Bible study team or small group to interact with other Christians and observe how others are applying God’s Word to their lives.
3 – Have a plan. For those who are really ambitious in their personal reading time, there are several plans available in YouVersion’s The Bible App to help guide you through the entire Bible. Many of these can help you get through the entire Bible in a year – and that’s a noteworthy accomplishment to say the least!
The more you spend time in His Word, the better your understanding of it will become. As you do, you’ll also find that God will help you comprehend exactly what you need to know for the season in life that you are in.
