Biblical word study devotions have been my favorite way to study the Bible for many years now. I love to study words while studying The Word.
A new word to study is released each month. Sign up for the current month, or a past month, below!
I know that New Year Resolutions and choosing One Word to focus on in the coming year are popular. I used to do both and enjoyed the challenge – but why not combine the two?!
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 2 Timothy 3:16
What if our New Year Resolution and One Word focus were replaced with the Resolve to spend more time in The Word?
What if this year’s self-care goals were replaced with prayer, praise, thanksgiving, and sacrifice?
What might it do for our heart, attitude, home, and the world?
What if we prayed instead of gossiped?
What if we praised instead of grumbled?
What if we were thankful instead of bitter?
What if we served others instead of ourselves?
What if we loved God with all of our being?
What if loving our neighbor was a result of all of the above?
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. Luke 10:27

A Year Of Biblical Word Study Devotions
I am excited to introduce you to a NEW series – A Year Of Biblical Word Study Devotions. Every month there is a different word with many relevant scriptures to get us reading God’s Word every day.
Each biblical word study devotion printable pack (you can get it below) will include the month’s focus word & definition, scripture, additional Bible texts that support the monthly focus, and space for writing your own copywork, notes, prayer & praise, and other words/scripture to study.
In just a few minutes daily, you will:
- read scripture
- study the definition of the focus word
- be prompted to journal your thoughts, prayers, and praise
- (and my hope is) be inspired to dig deeper and spend more time in God’s Word using the list of supporting Bible texts
- while this study can be done in just one hour-long session, I hope that you will use it as the foundation of a deeper study throughout the month.
- I suggest studying the focus word, definition, and key text one day and supporting texts each day going forward – following the Holy Spirit’s lead.
I use Noah Webster’s 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language since it seems to more accurately define biblical words. I use the KJV Bible for quoted scripture.
These biblical word study devotions can be started at any time and done in any order. You can choose to do them month by month through the year or just choose what you need right now!
January Biblical word study devotion: RENEW
After the last couple of years, we all need to renew ourselves – spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Spend the month of January studying the word RENEW and the many relevant scriptures to grasp what it really means to be made new in Christ.

February Biblical word study devotion: ENDURE
Winter is a good time to study the word Endure. Just like the barren tree must endure the cold weather so that they can be strengthened for when they bloom and bear fruit, we must endure life’s hardships – trusting that the Lord has something beautiful & good in store for us – only after our faith in HIM has been strengthened and readied for the journey!

March Biblical word study devotion: PEACE
No matter what happens, we can have peace if we know Jesus. Peace is not something based on our circumstances or surroundings – in fact, the very definition of it reveals just how peace sets us free from depending on anyone or thing outside of Jesus!

April Biblical Word Study Devotion: LONGSUFFERING

Oh, if only we did have faith the size of a mustard seed. I am often among those addressed as “ye of little faith” but I am so thankful that Jesus is faithful even when I am not!

August Biblical Word Study Devotion: Meekness
God calls us to meekness, but do we really know what it means? Study the definition and scriptures pertaining to meekness to truly understand what God desires from us. Jesus was our best example of meekness! May we always seek to know Him more.

September Biblical Word Study Devotion: Temperance / Moderation
I think both of these words can be summed up in this: self-control. However, we learn even more about them by defining the words and exploring their fruits in this word study. I pray we can become more like Jesus Christ in this, too!

October Biblical Word Study Devotion: Love
Love can seem to mean many things. Most often it is associated with an emotion, but that is not what God says it means. Love is an action word. Let’s learn what God means by LOVE.

November Biblical Word Study Devotion: Praise
The LORD is worthy of praise beyond anything we can give Him, but let us learn from the examples in Scriptures and strive to give Him the praise He deserves daily. May we always praise Him because of what He is, regardless of what we are.

December Biblical Word Study Devotion: Joy
Oh, that we could always experience a state of true joy in the LORD. How much we could endure in this earthly journey if we could fully rest in His JOY. This word study for December is in loving memory of my Abigail Rose (12.17.2006 – 7.14.2021), who taught me the true meaning of JOY and gave me a glimpse of pure joy in the LORD. She was our “December Rose, our joy in winter” … See you in the morning, Abi!
