Congratulations dear for making a mature decision. Yes, studying God's Word is for your everlasting good! Today, it will protect you from harm coming from an ungodly world. It will teach you Godly wisdom which is practical for our day. You will never regret studying the Holy Scriptures and then dedicating your life to your Maker (Revelation 4.11)
It is best to start with the Gospels of Matthew,Mark, Luke and John. It will relate to you Jesus Christ's life and ministry. Pay special attention to his Sermon on the Mount recorded at Matthew chaps 5-7 and Luke chap 6. It summarizes Jesus' message about how to live a Christian life, how to determine the right religion, the secrets of happiness and the wisdom of obedience.
Luke chapter 15 is a "must read" chapter. It will develop in you a deep love for God and His qualities. After reading it anyone will feel happy he has a God like the God of the Bible, Jehovah.
After the 4 Gospels, read Acts (of the Apostles). You will know how Jesus' disciples carried on the preaching of the Good News of the kingdom of God after the death of Christ.
You will gain spiritual strength knowing that Jesus is always leading the work of evangelizers and protecting those who lovingly carry on the assignment he gave to Christians.
Continue with reading the letters of Apostle Paul to Christian congregations in Rome (Italy), Corinth (Greece), in Asia Minor (Galatia, Ephesus, Colossae, ), in Macedonia (Philippi and Thessalonica), and to the Jews (Hebrews), to Timothy, Titus and Philemon.
Then learn from the forceful letter of James about Christian living, the letter of Jude, Peter and John to all Christians.
I would reserve the book of Revelation for last. Skip to the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament) from Genesis to Malachi.
After this, you will be ready to understand Revelation. Review Daniel, Isaiah and Genesis before taking up Revelation.
You will then understand God's sacred secrets that the world in general does not comprehend--what will happen in the last days until the end of 1000-year reign of the Christ, God's government by Christ and the chosen ones, His eternal purpose for mankind, what is the cause of human sufferings and how God will remove all causes of sufferings.
You will be happy to see a glimpse of the "real life", everlasting life under God's perfect blessings!
Take your time. Go for quality than quantity reading. The Bible has 1189 chapters. If you can read 3 to 4 chapters of the Bible every day you will finish reading it in 1 year.
Don't forget to pray for God's holy spirit for guidance before reading. Clear your mind of previous notions (like man's traditions and values) and understand the Word of God as written. Think about what you have read after each reading.
Ask your self: What does this tell me about God? How can i benefit from what i have read? How can i use this information to help others?
May God richly bless your efforts to really find Him and make His hearth rejoice by worshiping Him according to His truth, the way of worship that he approves. (John 4.23; Proverbs 27.11)
