Deep Word Diving 

COMMIT to this daily word study to develop your hunger and knowledge for the Word of God! 

STUDY the passage for the day using a specific 4-step method:


1. As you read it the FIRST time you will ENTER. As you read the passage of scripture for the first time, you are simply familiarizing yourself with the circumstances and what God is saying in this particular passage.


2. IMPRESS. As you read for the SECOND time, notice what word or phrase jumps out at you or makes the biggest impression. Ask God to "impress" upon you what His wants you to see in this passage.


3. PRAY. As you read this passage of scripture for the THIRD time through, spend a few moments in prayer thanking and praising God for His holy word. As you read, be prayerfully asking God what He has for you in this scripture.


4. LIVE. In this FINAL reading of the passage ask God to show you how He wants you to live based on this scripture. Is there something He would have you start doing, stop doing or continue doing?

Hints to help your study
A. READ a different bible translation (NASB, NKJV, NLT, MSG, etc) for each of the 4 times you are reading. Bible applications for your phone have many translations as well as www.crosswalk.com and other websites. 


B. ALLOW time for the Holy Spirit to impart, educate & enlighten. If you rush, it will be difficult to grasp the full meaning of the passage.


C. PLAN the time you will study. Study when it’s best for you. If morning isn’t good for you, study at night…just stay awake & focused!


D. REVIEW your journal often. It’s good to gain the information, but we must focus on applying the knowledge and insight gained from God afterwards.
