It is the same for each of us as we approach the Bible. Most of us have not had any instruction on how to study the scripture. Yet most of us have been in the faith for a long time. So not only are we not sure how to do what we are being asked to do, we feel like we should be able to do it already. No. It is unreasonable to thing you can do something that you have never been shown how to do.
So when you are learning to dive into the Word yourself, like anything else that is new, there will be a time of awkward progress. The difference is the richness of the reward. Pushing through the fog results ultimately in gaining greater insight into the nature and character of God.
That is worth pretty much any effort.
