Many of us are lost in knowing who we truly are; Who God has created us to be and how God sees us. The big problem is, we struggle to believe the simplicity of this gracious gift.
Start by reading this:
Read the scripture readings in this article using your own bible and do the following:
Get a journal and allowed yourself to slow down each day to connect with God using SOAP method of study.
What is S.O.A.P.?
S.O.A.P. stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer. It is a way of getting more out of your time in God's word. We did not invent it, we just decided to make a website to make it easier to do.
How does it work?
It's quite simple. When you sit for your daily quiet time read the bible as you normally would with one simple difference. Underline or make note of any verses that jump out at you with special significance. This is the basis for diving deeper and using S.O.A.P.
Now comes the cool part. Login and create a new SOAP entry. There are four fields to fill in and I bet you can guess what they are:
Type in the verse or verses that stuck out to you in your reading. You can show the verses and even have them read to you with the click of a button. No copying and pasting blocks of text.
What did you observe about the scripture that struck you. This can be one sentence or a whole book.
How can you apply the observation so that it affects your life today.
Write out a prayer to God based on what you just learned and ask him to help you apply this truth in your life.
This will help. Continue to be courageous for Christ.
