This is How to S.O.A.P.
You’ll need three items (Bible, Pen, Journal & Bible Reading Plan) to S.O.A.P. each day!
S – Scripture
Open your Bible to your reading for the day. Take time reading and allow God to speak to you. When you are done, look for a verse that particularly spoke to you that day, and write it in your journal.
O – Observation
What do you think God is saying to you in this scripture? Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you & reveal Jesus to you.
A – Application
Personalise what you have read, by asking yourself how it applies to your life right now. Perhaps it is instruction, encouragement, a new promise, or corrections for a particular area of your life. Write how this scripture can apply to you today.
P – Prayer
This can be as simple as asking God to help you use this scripture, or even a prayer for a greater insight on what He may be revealing to you. Remember, prayer is a two-way conversation, so be sure to listen to what God has to say! Now, write it out.
