Whether you are new to the Bible or have been reading it for some time, here are 7 Important Bible Study Tips that will help to strengthen your faith and deepen your relationship with Jesus Christ.
Bible Study – Walk Before You Run
Two great ways to begin your journey in God’s Word is to get both a Daily Walk Bible and a Pocket Bible.
Your Humble Walk is in no way affiliated with any of these companies who sell Bibles.
In truth, we speak from personal experience in recommending to you the best resources to better your walk with God and His Word.
Do an online search for Best Daily Walk Bible and Best Pocket Bible and you will be presented with many options.
Most Daily Walk Bibles come with insights on that day’s specific reading and give you a road map to help your journey through God’s Word over the course of 12 months.
The Daily Walk Bible does it all for you.
One Bible reading for each day, complete with insight and commentary on that day’s reading to better your understanding.
Pocket sized Bibles will enable you to turn to any Bible verse during the course of your busy day.
Moreover, you will be carrying God’s Word with you everywhere you go.
Things will happen during your day to where you will need truth, hope and strength and carrying your Pocket Bible with you will provide that truth, hope and strength!
Bible Study Tips – Get a Concordance
One of the best resources you can find to help you better understand God’s Word and what is in it, is to use a Bible Concordance.
They provide more detail and insight on bible verses and all people mentioned throughout the Bible.
A concordance is an alphabetical index of words in the Bible and the main chapters and verses where it occurs.
For when you are home or have access to a computer, here is a free version with multiple options.
My personal choice is the paperback version of a concordance.
I keep it at my side each day during my Bible reading times so that I can turn to it for more information as I read through that day’s devotional in my Daily Walk Bible.
Concordances are helpful when you’re thinking of a particular verse and can’t remember where it is.
They can also help you to understand the definitions of certain words in Greek, Hebrew, or Aramaic.
It helps to have everything you need before you begin your Bible study time.
Now you have the resources you need.
Your Daily Walk Bible, Pocket Sized Bible and Your Bible Concordance to begin your journey into God’s Word!
Pray For Wisdom
Joshua 1:8; “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”
You want success in all you do then start your day the right way by meditating in God’s Word.
Open your Pocket Bible at lunchtime to strengthen your faith!
Close your day the way you began it, with prayer and in God’s Word.
Moreover, God provided every soul who has ever walked the face of this earth with the freewill to choose to read His life guidebook for success.
The Holy Bible.
We have also provided you with factual evidence that the Bible is an historically accurate document.
- God to speak to you through his Word
- Knowledge and good decision-making

Ask God to show you how to respond to his Word.
Bible Study Tips – Daily Christ Notes
God will speak to you when your heart is in the place He wants to be.
You spend time in God’s Word and pray to Him and He will answer you.
His answer to you will come when it comes at any point during a given day.
Another way to carry God’s Word and guidance is to write your own Daily Christ Notes.
When God speaks to your heart and you understand the meaning of what you have read or understand what God intends for you to do after reading His Word, then carrying notes with you will help you live the way God wants you to.
Moreover, when you write something down and read it time and time again it becomes a part of you.
This is how God’s Word will become stored in your heart.
Strengthen Your Faith – Promises Of GOD
There are over 5,000 divine promises from God to all children of God.
- All Knowing
Which all mean this.
When God makes you a promise, know that it will come true!
There will times, perhaps even days when you feel discouraged or disappointed. You can overcome that!
Tough love time.
Christ’s death on the cross for you and I and everyone and God’s promises; are more than enough to shock anyone back into reality.
A reality that God has an amazing life designed uniquely for you and He gave you the freewill to decide whether or not you want to claim it.
Do you want to claim it?
Get on the road to your dream life by spending your days in God’s Word.
With each day you will grow closer to Jesus Christ.
You will strengthen your faith more and more and before you know it, you will be in the moment of living the life you have always imagined!
I know this from personal experience.
3 short years ago I became a budget cut from a good paying job in the broadcast media industry.
All through my career, something did not feel right.
It felt like there was a dark cloud hanging over me whenever I went into work.
Moreover, during my career that dark cloud followed me into 15 different media outlet buildings.
Fast forward to now.
All I am and all I have is from God, as it always was.
He has doubled my income.
Shown me the clear path He created for this life He designed for me, and with this ministry.
Through my work, the company God gave me the blueprint to create; I have come to meet dozens of millionaires, who with the financial riches God has provided them, are all doing great things to help their communities and communities around the world!
Bible Study Tips: Your Bible Study Is Uniquely Yours
You may gravitate to page one in the Bible, the Book of Genesis and that is a great place to start.
That said, just as your life is a living journey, the Bible is a Living Book.
Have you ever read a Bible passage and instantly known that God meant for you to read that passage on that particular day because it was right in tune with what was happening in your life at the time?
I repeat happily. Living Book.
It is Your Life Guide Book.
The one that God created for you to carry you through this life of yours.
As you live, so it lives.
When you meditate on God’s Word every day, His Word then comes to live in you and when this happens you are walking in step with Jesus Christ! Praise The Lord, Oh My Soul, Praise The Lord!
Your Daily Walk Bible will guide you through The Old Testament and New Testament and God will guide you toward his life promises for you when you spend more and more time in His Word.
Do this and you will strengthen your faith and become a shining example to others.
This journey is uniquely yours which makes it the walk of all walks between you and Jesus Christ.
Bible Study – It’s A Marathon Not A Sprint
Strong faith is built overtime.
It does not happen overnight.
You will strengthen your faith over time.
The more you read, the more you learn and the more you will come to realize that God plans for you to know so much more!
Jeremiah 33:3 inspires and strengthens! It is your direct line to the God of all creation.
“Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.”
Like great relationships, great faith will strengthen over time.
Remember, it’s a marathon, this life of yours and not a sprint.
Because once you believe in Jesus Christ and what He did for you, your life becomes eternal.
You will live forever because of Christ!
