At GSC, our desire is that every believer would not just attend church, but also hear from God daily through His Word! We provide SOAP through our smartphone app for this reason. As we read the Bible, we begin to see how God responds to things. Doing daily devotions re-patterns the way we think, transforms the spirit of our mind, and helps us become more like Jesus!
S. FOR 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. FOR OBSERVATION What do you think God is saying to you in this scripture? Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you and reveal Jesus to you.
A. FOR APPLICATION Personalize 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. FOR 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.
