Thanks for your question.
You are on the right track. You really do need to read the Bible every day but you need to do it systematically and with a guide to understanding difficult passages. Here's a link to a website which will take you through the Bible every day and provide explanations for difficult passages:
Daily Readings (please click on the title)
Also, why not take the free Bible study course available on thisisyourbible.com? This course will give you a background in the major themes of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. As with everything we offer, there is no cost to you other than your time and effort. You will also have a personal tutor to whom you may pose questions either from the course itself or those questions which come to you as you read the Bible.
I hope you have found this helpful.
