Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer
We’re here to support your journey in devotion to Jesus Christ, a lifelong commitment.
Central to this journey is your connection with the Bible, which is like a personal letter from Him to you. We recommend using the SOAP personal daily devotional method, which stands for Scripture, Observation, Application, and Prayer.
As you engage in this practice, consider jotting down your thoughts in a journal. This journaling can help you remember the blessings and important lessons that come your way, ensuring you don’t miss out on valuable experiences and wisdom.
Read a passage in the Bible to understand what God wants to speak to you. Pick a verse that stands out to you and write it in your journal.
What is God saying in this Scripture? Ask the Holy Spirit to help you and explain Jesus’ message in your own words in your journal.
Make it personal and think about how these verses relate to your life now. Write about how they can apply to you today.
Keep it simple. Ask God to help you use this Scripture or understand what He’s trying to say. Remember, prayer is a conversation, so listen to what God might be saying and write about it in your journal.
