For the FIRST SEVEN days of the 21 Day Challenge we are reading Psalms 1 – 57. You can do it. However, just like we discussed Sunday, be careful not to make it all about completing a task. It’s about washing and renewing your mind with the Word of God.
When reading this week, try to get the most out of what you read from God’s Word by applying the SOAP method…
S – Scripture…write down one verse that “jumps out” and speaks to you. You may want to begin by choosing a particular book in the Bible to read through or maybe a certain topic. Structure helps keep us on track, but a little randomness now and then doesn’t hurt either. 🙂
O – Observations…jot down some notes on what God shows you through the Scripture. God’s Word is living and active…it’s never stagnant. Listen and pay attention to what the LORD wants to show you.
A – Application…make note of some ways you can apply what the Holy Spirit is showing you. Remember…we’re to be doers of the Word not just hearers. What are some practical ways you can incorporate the truth of Scripture into your life.
P – Prayer…take time to pray, asking God to help you carry out His will. Pray for others and how God wants to use you in so many ways! Thank God for speaking to you, for giving you His Word, for teaching you by His Spirit, etc.! Praise Him for being real and active in your life!
”Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:12-13
