Quiet Time Bible Guide

This year, my aim is to read through the entire bible and I am using this daily bible study guide which has 365 quiet times. It’s a study through the new testament and Psalms, which means I won’t be able to do the other old testament books within the year but its okay because it takes me close enough,  then I can continue the rest of the books with another study.

I love this study because it’s a daily study with no dates, days of week or months, which means you can just continue where you left off if you run out time without feeling overwhelmed trying to catch up. If something weighs on your mind, you can skip to a reading that meets your needs that day. Don’t feel bound to the study, go at your own pace. You can do a study each day or do two each day depending on how much time you have. .

How to use it

Have a notepad with you to jot down unfamiliar words (if you don’t have a bible dictionary) or make a list of prayer concerns as you study, which you can later turn to and see how God  is working in your life.

The study has five parts that will help you get the most out of it:

Warming up to God

This is to draw your attention to the theme of the study for the day. This can be a topic to reflect on or a prayer to prepare your heart.

Daily Scripture Reading

This is a chapter or chapters you will have to read and re-read based on your study to help you with the overview of the contents.

Discovering The Word

This is the section with questions based on the scripture reading:

  • Observation questions help to understand the contents of the passages asking the basic facts; who, what, when, where, how?
  • Interpretation Questions delve into the meaning of the passage .
  • Application Questions helps to discover its implications for growing Christians.

Application of the word

Make the study personal by asking yourself how God has spoken to you during the study and what actions to take based on what you’ve learnt

Responding in Prayer

Pray asking for God’s wisdom in applying His word on what you’ve studied, putting into practice what you’ve learnt, praying for family, friends, your nation, events of the world in the news etc.

The study is designed for 15 – 20 minutes but I’ve set time for an hour or so to have enough prayer time at the end of the study.

Feel free to go at your own pace and don’t feel bound to the study, do it as the spirit leads. If something weighs on your mind, find reading that meets your e.g a Psalm etc.

If you are interested in purchasing the study, you can easily purchase it on Amazon. I highly recommend it.

If you decide to use this quiet time study or any other you choose, I hope it will be a source of encouragement and spiritual growth to you.

May the Holy Spirit give you wisdom, knowledge and understanding of His word as you seek Him daily.

Be blessed!

    1. Oh I am glad you find the post inspiring. Thank you so much for taking time to read it. I’ve been through too much not to praise Him! He has been faithful. Without God, I don’t even want to imagine where I would be right now. He has kept me :-). God bless you as you desire to walk with Him. May He guide you and lead you in the way righteous!

    1. Exactly! I tried without a study guide and stopped after a few chapters. The study guide is keeping me on track. I am also doing it early in the morning when its quiet and before I do anything else

    1. Oh thank you so much. I think is personal and depends on how much time you have and the study guide you are using. I’ve sent mine for hour but it takes 30 -45 minutes depending on how many questions that day.
