Four Steps for Studying the Word


Many people have asked Joyce Meyer how to study God's Word. Here's four helpful tips to follow.

Proverbs 4:20

Many people have asked me how to study God’s Word. Here are four helpful tips:

1. Purposely set aside time. I make an appointment with God in the mornings, but if that doesn’t work for you, find a time that does…even if it’s not every day. Just start somewhere and you’ll see the positive fruit that this time brings to your life!

2. Make preparation for your Bible study. Choose a place that you enjoy being—a room in your house where you can be alone.

3. Have all your materials available. You’ll want your Bible, of course, and a good Bible dictionary, concordance, pen and paper. That way, you’re prepared to reference related Scriptures or write something down.

4. Prepare your heart. Talk to God about things you may need to confess, and enter your study time peacefully without anything that may block you from receiving revelation from God’s Word.

Take the time to study the Word because there is power in it to change your life and become the person God wants you to be.

Prayer Starter: Lord, I purpose in my heart to set aside time to really study Your Word. Teach me how to understand, consent and submit to Your truth in my life every day.
