From My Devotions: Bible Study in 2021

This is the last Sunday in 2020. No doubt most of us are busily working on figuring out our goals, hopes, and dreams for 2021. Or maybe some of you already have your goals and plans all figured out. Good for you! You’re ahead of me.

In the midst of all this planning we need to be careful that we don’t overlook one important part of our lives. What are our spiritual goals for the new year? How are we going to dig deeper into God’s Word? What are our Bible study plans for 2021?

My Plans

I’m still deciding what I’m going to be doing for my personal devotions. The last several years I have read through the Bible, either chronologically or straight through. But this year I want to do more in-depth studying. My parents just gave me a devotional book that studies some of the Psalms, and I plan to do that in January. But since it is only thirty days long, I will need more than that in the new year.

Psalm 119:18

Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold

wondrous things out of thy law.

This next year I want to do more than just read a passage of Scripture and call that good. I want to really study it and learn more about what it means for me personally. One of my favorite verses about the Bible is 2 Timothy 3:16-17 “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.”

We are told in Scripture to study it. It is applicable to every part of our lives, and we should be reading and studying it each and every day.

What are your Bible study plans for 2021? I’d love to hear how you plan to study God’s Word in the coming year. It might give me some ideas!

  1. Great reminder as we near the New Year, Hannah!!! Being resoled to dig deeper into God’s Word and draw nearer to Him through it should be #1 on our New Year’s Resolution list. <3 I'm not quite sure how I will change up my daily reading routine or study method but have been thinking about it a lot lately. I look forward to hearing what you choose to do for 2021!

  2. Thank you, Rachel! I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and planning too! I can’t wait to share it with you!

  3. I want to study through the Bible in the next through years, chronologically, and taking into consideration the history behind the Bible’s record history.
    Another “goal” I have is to listen to God more. I want to get much closer to Him this year!

    1. These are great goals to have, Grace! Studying the Bible chronologically is so interesting and gives you a much better idea how the prophecies, epistles, and books of poetry fit into the events that are recorded. I hope you learn a lot doing this!
