Personal Bible Studies are a reference for your individual method carefully checking the Bible, as God's Word. We cannot read the Bible casually and hope to go with a great understanding of God's will for our lives and Christian growth. The following is a suggestion, based on my personal Bible study habits:
Pre-study. Here are the three things you need before you open the Bible:
Find a place where you can concentrate for fifteen minutes for up to one hour or whatever amount of time you want to use for your personal Bible study. You can read all the bible facts and statistics from various sites and sources.
- Have your study tool, notebook, and pen.
- Pray that God helps you understand what you will learn.

Actual studies. Use three study questions and at least four learning tools to help you make a useful record for Christian life. Three study questions are – what the part says, what does it mean, and what does it mean to me? Answer the first question (eg, observation), by competing or entering your own words what the part said. You should read the part several times.
Answering the second question (eg, interpretation) can call for the use of the study tool. The Bible study has footnotes, outlines, articles, and other useful learning sources in it. The living Bible is a Bible paraphrase that can help in seeing the general understanding of this passage. But you will not use this for deep words for text words check.
